Rick Crandall serves as an independent director and advisor to a number of companies ranging from large to small, public and private. In addition to his software-industry background, he has extensive experience in corporate governance and corporate strategy in several industries being affected by or creating game-changing technology.

Rick brings to the DFIN board a former enterprise-software CEO that successfully executed a strategic transformation, extensive experience in board chairmanships, and a strategist with continuing expertise in enterprise software, cybersecurity and digital transformation.

He was the founder of Comshare, Inc. originally as a pioneer of computer-timesharing services, the predecessor to today’s cloud computing. He took Comshare through one of the earliest public offerings in the tech industry, and then guided it through one of the few total strategic transformations to software products ranging from decision support to business intelligence and executive information systems. Comshare grew rapidly and expanded to 22 countries during Crandall’s 26 year run as CEO. He eventually sold the company to what is today INFOR.

He is the founder and continuing CEO of the Enterprise Software CEO Roundtable (since 1994), the definitive group of CEOs of the enterprise software industry’s 50 firms with revenue ranging from $100 million to $5 billion. With gatherings twice yearly in New York City and Silicon Valley, the ESR keeps Crandall up-to-date with all of the key issues, opportunities and threats confronting the software industry at the CEO level.

Rick is a cybersecurity expert and serves on the Board of the National Cybersecurity Center (Colorado Springs). The NCC collaborates with the private sector, military and federal agencies to research cyberthreats and educate the public and private sectors. He chairs the core Cyber Committee of the NCC Board and authored the NCC Cybersecurity Oversight Certification Course for executives and board members.

He is Executive Chairman of Pelstar, LLC, manufacturer of the market- leading brand (Health o meter Professional ®) of medical equipment. Pelstar won Private Company Board of the Year Award for 2016, see: http://www.rickcrandall.net/private-company-boards-of-the-year-2016-named-pelstar/.

From 1995 to 2003, Crandall helped Gideon Gartner create Giga Information Group, one of the nation’s premier technology research and advisory firms that went public in the late 1990’s. From 2002 – 2003 he was Chairman of Giga and he oversaw its sale to Forrester Research.

For 13 years, he was “foreign country person” board member of Beacon Information Technology, one of Japan’s largest software companies, and assisted in its attempts to breakout beyond its local Japanese borders.

Crandall was Chairman of Novell, Inc. in its later years. He oversaw the sale of Novell to a trio of private equity firms and simultaneously much of its patent library to a consortium of Microsoft, Apple Computer, Oracle and EMC.

Crandall was the technology advisor to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce from 2003 to 2008. He served as Chairman of ITAA, the association for the computer software and services industry. He served on the ITAA Board for over 20 years and chaired its strategic planning committee for 12 years.

In the year of the 25th anniversary of the birth of the software industry, Crandall was selected as “One of the 5 Leading Pioneers of the Computer Industry” (ref.: ICP Business Software Review). Crandall received the 1992 Outstanding Entrepreneur Award from the University of Michigan Business School and Harvard Business School Alumni groups.

He currently serves on the Boards of several game-changing technology companies including:

Actv8.me – a digital customer-engagement software platform for the media and retail industries.

Virun – a heavily-patented nutraceutical formulations company using chemistry and biology to create difficult-to-formulate ingredients so they can be incorporated into finished specialty foods.

Rick is also a member of the Advisory Board for the Wharton Executive Education Program, Boards That Lead governance initiative.

Crandall attended the University of Michigan where he received a BS Electrical Engineering, BS Math and a Masters in Industrial Engineering, 1966.

He is a New York City native and now lives in Aspen, CO where he is an avid mountain climber (to date having summited all of Colorado’s 58 “fourteeners,” ref: http://rickcrandall.net/wp/climb-stories/), cyclist and skier. Rick’s recently published book entitled The Dog Who Took Me Up a Mountain has been a top-ranked memoir about leadership, overcoming challenges using mountain climbing as a metaphor for business. He is married to Pamela Clavette Levy.

Luis Aguilar is an expert in corporate governance with a unique background in compliance, as general counsel to a major investment management firm and in governmental regulation and oversight of public companies. He has been named a Board Leadership Fellow by the National Association of Corporate Directors, which is recognized as the Gold Standard Director Credential demonstrating a commitment to the highest standard of boardroom excellence.

Luis brings to the DFIN board, in addition to an extensive board governance background, a board member who is ideally relevant to the company’s offerings, namely his expertise in the Global Capital Markets and Global Investment Management Markets.

Most recently, he served as a Commissioner at the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. He was originally appointed by President George W. Bush in 2008 and was reappointed by President Barack Obama in 2011. Luis served in this role until the end of 2015 and became the eighth longest-serving Commissioner in SEC history. In the SEC’s more than 80-year history, he has been one of only three Commissioners to have been nominated by two U.S. Presidents from two different political parties.

At the SEC, Luis had a major impact on improving transparency and accountability. Luis also focused on improving the Commission's lack of data or analytics regarding the markets it was tasked with regulating. During his tenure, the Commission created several new offices to specifically address this concern, including the Center for Risk and Quantitative Analytics.

Prior to becoming Commissioner, Luis served as the General Counsel, Head of Compliance, Executive Vice President, and Corporate Secretary of Invesco Inc., with responsibility for all legal and compliance matters regarding Invesco Institutional (Invesco is an Atlanta-based global investment management firm with more than $790 billion assets under management); and Partner of several prominent national law firms, including McKenna Long & Aldridge, LLP (subsequently merged with Dentons US LLP); Alston & Bird LLP; Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP; and Powell Goldstein Frazer & Murphy LLP (subsequently merged with Bryan Cave LLP).

He began his legal career as an attorney at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Charles Drucker is the former Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Worldpay, Inc., a global leader in integrated omni-commerce payments that processes more than 40 billion credit and debit card transactions annually. He was also chairman of the company’s board of directors.

Worldpay, Inc. was formed in early 2018, when Cincinnati-based Vantiv, Inc. acquired Worldpay Group plc, a London-based leader in global eCommerce and technology-led payment solutions.

Charles previously served as CEO of Vantiv; he joined Vantiv in 2004 and led its separation from Fifth Third Bancorp in 2009. Charles took Vantiv public through a well-received initial public offering in 2012. Through visionary leadership and strategic acquisitions, Charles built Worldpay into the No. 1 global acquirer (Nilson Report).

His entire 35-year career has been in the financial services industry. Prior to his appointment as Vantiv CEO, Charles was President of Fifth Third Processing Solutions; the division later became Vantiv. He also previously led Fifth Third’s Investment Advisors division, which included Private Bank, Securities Retail Brokerage, Asset Management and Institutional Services.

Preceding Fifth Third, Charles was with First Data Corporation and Wells Fargo.

Juliet Ellis is the former Chief Investment Officer of US Growth Equities for Invesco, Inc.  In that role, which she held from 2008 – 2019,  she was responsible for overseeing the allocation and management of over $30 billion in assets across nine fund strategies.  Juliet was a highly-ranked equity analyst and portfolio manager for nearly her entire career and her funds have been recognized by independent industry research firms as top performers against their peers and investment benchmarks.

Juliet brings powerful and experienced perspectives on shareholder priorities, capital allocation and shareholder communication, among other strengths, to the DFIN Board.

Prior to joining Invesco, she served as a Portfolio Manager for JPMorgan Chase & Co. and its predecessors and as a financial consultant for Merrill Lynch & Company.

Juliet attended Indiana University where she graduated Cum Laude with a BA in Economics and Political Science in 1981.

Since 2020, Gary G. Greenfield has served as Executive Advisor at Court Square Capital Partners, a NYC-based Private Equity firm  where he was previously a Partner for seven years. Court Square Capital focuses on US-based middle-market companies within the business services, general industrial, healthcare, and technology and telecommunications industries. Known for his expertise and success in turning around struggling companies, Gary brings 40-plus years of technology experience (nearly 20 of those as the CEO).

In addition to his CEO experience, Gary brings to DFIN eight years of experience working with PE firms that specialize primarily in the technology sector, serving as an operating partner of Francisco Partners and investment partner at Court Square Capital.

Prior to joining Court Square Capital, he served as CEO of Avid Technology, Inc. from 2007 until 2013. Avid developed and sold software solutions to the broadcast and entertainment industry. Gary was recruited to Avid to put the company back on solid footing after many of its customers and investors believed the company had grown too quickly through acquisitions and failed to continue to support its current customer base with quality and innovative products. Within 20 months, Gary improved gross margins and reduced operating expenses for the company and had repaired customer relationships with major media companies.

Gary is also credited with turning around Merant plc in 2001, Peregrine Systems in 2003 and GXS in 2007. Merant was formed through the merger of Intersolv, where Gary had served as CEO, and Micro Focus.
