Avenu Insights & Analytics Builds Team with Product Management VP

Award Winner De Ana Thompson Leads Efforts in Product Delivery

HERNDON, VA, November 14, 2018 – De Ana Thompson has joined Avenu Insights & Analytics (Avenu) as vice president of product and solutions management.

Thompson brings to the role an understanding of the methodology for delivering software and services to the state and local government market.

“Providing governments with products and services starts with an understanding of the problem they are trying to solve, rather than how an existing product can fit into their current environment,” says Thompson. “Only then can you design, develop and deliver a product that scales and meets the expectations of government staff and ultimately citizens.”

Earlier in her career Thompson held several positions in the San Bernardino County, California government including recorder, clerk and archivist. For her successes there Thompson received the Public Official of the Year award from the National Association of County Recorders, Election Officials and Clerks. More recently she had product management roles with Conduent and Xerox.

“De Ana knows what local governments need and how to meet that need,” states Avenu CEO Paul Colangelo. “She is adept at serving as the bridge between the customers, technical development teams, and sales and marketing staff, so the solutions we bring to market will be practical and ready to deliver value right away.”
