CorVant names vice president of operations

The company said Hopkins will oversee day-to-day operations with a focus on product and service development.

CorVant, the creator of business management software PierVantage, hired Bruce Hopkins as vice president of operations.

The company said Hopkins will oversee day-to-day operations with a focus on product and service development while helping to enhance a new customer on-boarding and implementation process.

Hopkins also will focus on creating and delivering two new service offerings for current PierVantage customers — accounting as a service and financial management as a service.

Prior to joining CorVant, Hopkins was the CFO of three boatbuilding companies — Hodgdon Yachts Inc. in East Boothbay, Maine; Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding Co. in Thomaston, Maine; and Gunboat International Ltd. in Wanchese, N.C.

“While at Lyman-Morse, Bruce was an early adopter of PierVantage, providing domain expertise and guidance throughout the development of PierVantage,” CorVant CEO and founder Navroze Eduljee said in a statement.

“Our team has worked closely with him for many years, and having been involved in two large PierVantage implementations at Lyman-Morse and Gunboat, Bruce understands the value PierVantage brings to a marine business. With his in-depth knowledge of PierVantage, his extensive marine experience and his CPA credentials he is uniquely qualified to help our current customers improve their operations and our potential customers understand the considerable benefits of our solution.”
