We have big news! PI Worldwide was acquired by Phoenix Strategy Investments at the end of 2014. This is big because PI Worldwide has been a family owned business since its inception in the 1950s. It’s also important because we have already seen rapid changes from the new owner, focused on increasing the quality of the tool and technology. Plans include accelerating the development of technology-enabled resources for applying workforce analytics, strategic investment in the current Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based solution and reworking the PI training options.The new President and CEO of PI Worldwide, Mike Zani, previously served as CEO of ShapeUp, a social SaaS wellness platform, where he grew revenues by 600% in three years. Mike currently serves on the board of directors for ShapeUp. Previously, Mike served as President of LEDCO, a manufacturer of rugged computer peripherals, Mike led its acquisition and its eventual sale to Havis-Shields, an industry leader in police radio consoles. It was at LEDCO where Mike, a customer of PI Worldwide, developed his passion for the Predictive Index as a vital management tool. Mike is a co-founder and partner of Phoenix Strategy Investments, the private investment fund that acquired PI Worldwide in 2014.
