As OneSource Virtual gears up for its next phase of growth, it has appointed a new chief executive officer. Trey Campbell, the company’s former chief operating officer, takes over the top spot from Brian Williams, who has been named executive chairman of the board.
“The growth we continue to explore and execute on daily has just gotten to a point on where [we ask ourselves], ‘how do you do it all?’” said Williams, who is also a co-founder of the company. “It comes down to divide and conquer. We both can’t get to everything every day.”
“With Brian having more time, he can focus on what we’re doing outside the business, drive the board agenda, and let me run the business day-to-day,” Campbell said. “So it puts us both into the area where we’re both most comfortable.”
OneSource Virtual, founded in 2008, has spent the last few years expanding its business, which is focused on providing software solutions for the human resources application Workday. It recently moved its headquarters from Irving to a 215,000 square-foot space at Cypress Waters. The move came after the company raised $150 million from California-based Technology Crossover Ventures in 2015. OneSource Virtual employs about 900 employees, with about 500 located at the Dallas headquarters, and generates about $125 million in revenue.
With Campbell leading the company, OneSource Virtual will continue broadening its geographic scope and expanding its services. He is also expected to help the company achieve its goal of doubling its revenue over the next five years. Campbell’s executive team includes John D. Bax, who joined as CFO last September.
Campbell joined OneSource Virtual as COO in August last year after serving on the company’s advisory board. With more than 30 years of sales, operations, technology, and management experience at companies including AT&T and Accenture, Campbell was a key addition to the team. “I always hoped Trey would be the right successor,” Williams said, adding that he worked alongside Campbell on the advisory board for five years. “But working alongside him for the last 14 months, it became quite clear … it just became very logical it was time.”
“We’re excited about the future and excited about our new roles,” Campbell said. “It’s full speed ahead, and we’ll continue to try to grow.”
