NEW YORK— Joe Bartolotta has joined Blue Heron Research Partners as Managing Director of Business Development, replacing Denver Brown, who stepped down in late 2018. Joe previously spent more than ten years at First Advantage’s BackTrack Reports, Inc, the investigative due diligence firm co-founded by Blue Heron’s own COO Randy Shain, where he ran sales and marketing and left as General Manager. Prior to BackTrack Reports, Joe held sales roles at telecommunications, management consulting, and event management firms.
Over the last ten years, Joe developed and implemented a business plan, focusing on restructuring the operational process, in an effort to increase sales and margins, all while maintaining a high customer retention rate. Joe believes some of the keys to success include managing the business by implementing and consistently measuring and adjusting the fundamentals and improving the client experience on an ongoing basis.
Blue Heron has been growing rapidly over the last few years and expanding operations in Europe, recently opening a new office in London in December 2018. Joe’s extensive experience in the field of investigative due diligence will be immensely valuable in driving growth within the private equity space. Joe will help further expand Blue Heron’s client base in the US while providing a high level of care and attention to clients. As the company grows, Joe will keep an ear to the ground to ensure that clients’ needs and concerns are addressed and work with them to deliver efficient solutions.
“We are very pleased to welcome Joe to Blue Heron.” said Blue Heron founder David Rynecki. “I am confident that Joe will be able to build on Denver’s accomplishments to provide a smooth and seamless experience for our clients.”
