Aug 9, 2023

SaaS Veteran, Mike Soldan, Joins Intterra as CEO to Promote Growth and World-Class Customer Experiences

ASTLE ROCK, Colo. /PRNewswire/ — Intterra and capital partner Emberline announce the placement of new CEO, Mike Soldan. This leadership change will allow Intterra to build on its strong brand reputation, increase its pace of technology innovation, and accelerate its mission of saving lives, property, and the environment from all manner of disasters.

“Intterra is on a rapid path to being the leader in all things emergency. Joining a team that is dedicated to helping first-responders and the communities they support is a dream. I’m committed to supporting Intterra’s customers by prioritizing an investment in technology and the customer experience. Our opportunity for growth is massive and I can’t wait to get started,” said Soldan.

Soldan has led many successful teams including cutting-edge B2B SaaS organizations within the public sector and education spaces, and has also advised many high-growth organizations on expansion initiatives. He’s passionate about helping first-responders and brings proven practices to make software more effective. His core focus areas will be delivering on customer feedback faster, scaling Interra’s data ecosystem to give customers more intel when they need it, and accelerating the deployment of Intterra’s common operating picture to all emergency needs.

“Mike is the right leader at the right time – his extensive track record in public sector software solutions is a perfect complement to Intterra,” said Jeff Johnson, a Director of the Western Fire Chiefs Association (WFCA). I can’t think of a better team than Intterra to help agencies around the country manage and mitigate risk.”

Soldan takes over as CEO from Molly Hausmann, who has served in an interim-role since early 2023, after also holding the COO role. Hausmann will remain with Intterra as an Officer on the Executive Team, helping guide strategy, partnerships, customer relationships, and expand Intterra’s reach to larger deals and organizations. “I’m excited to work alongside Mike and Emberline to catapult the concept set forth by Intterra founders, Kate DarganBrian Collins and David Blankinship. The team is invigorated to go to market with additional investment to promote Community Resilience through Risk, Response & Recovery solutions.”

“As the world increases in complexity, we need to make it easier for first responders to do their job. Mike has a tremendous amount of experience building technology companies that simplify complex problems, and we look forward to seeing Mike take Intterra on this journey,” said Jon McLaughlin, a partner at Emberline.
