Rotunda Capital-Backed Trinity3 Technology Announces New CEO Scott Gill

 

 

ST. PAUL, Minn.– (BUSINESS WIRE) — Trinity3 Technology, a portfolio company of Rotunda Capital Partners and leading provider of student computing solutions, warranty services, and enterprise products for the K-12 education market, is pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Gill as president and chief executive officer, effective June 1, 2020. As part of a planned transition, current CEO Gary Embretson is retiring, having led Trinity3 through significant growth since the passing of the company’s co-founder, Dave Hoeffel, in 2018.

“Since the inception of Trinity3 in 2014, I’ve had the privilege of serving as CEO, also assuming the role of president in 2018 after the tragic passing of Dave Hoeffel, a great leader and friend of mine,” said Embretson. “This company started from scratch and already is an industry leader, serving schools in 48 states. This couldn’t have happened without vision and a foundation built on great values—and more importantly, great employees. We’re now at a pivotal stage and Scott brings skills that will help Trinity3 seize this huge growth opportunity.”

“We thank Gary for his remarkable leadership and collaboration, as he leaves Trinity3 in a position of strength,” said John Fruehwirth, managing partner at Rotunda Capital Partners. “In 2019, we aligned with this company for various reasons, such as its business model—a natural fit with Rotunda’s distribution and specialty finance experience. We keep finding more reasons to be excited about our partnership, and that includes welcoming Scott to the team.”

Most recently, Gill served as president of Legrand AV, having joined Legrand (Euronext: LR) after the company’s acquisition of Milestone AV Technologies (Milestone) in August 2017. He was CEO of Milestone for 12 years, working with the team there to build it from a $60 million business to one exceeding $500 million in annual sales in 2018.  Milestone was backed by Pritzker Private Capital, until Gill led its sale to LegrandHe joined the predecessor company to Milestone, Chief Manufacturing, in 2004, after serving as senior principal at Parthenon Group. Earlier in his career, Gill held various technical positions at General Electric. He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, respectively, and an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

“I’m honored to join the Trinity3 team, particularly now, when the deployment of technology for remote learning is so critical for schools across the U.S.,” said Gill. “I look forward to helping build on the legacy Dave and Gary created, and to leading this growing Minnesota-based enterprise focused on delivering exceptional service to our vital educational institutions nationwide.”
