www.ceotodaymagazine.com HALL OF FAME 44 Avetta utilises a two-sided customer model. On the one side is what we would call our enterprise clients: these are big, industrial firms that are global in scope, with an average of around $50 bil- lion in revenue. This covers industries such as energy, chemicals, construction, material manufacturing, utilities, telecom, property management and more. With the recent merger be- tween Avetta and BROWZ we have around 450 of these big enterprise clients, and what we do is we vet the risk and safety on approxi- mately 3,500 of their work sites. “Work sites,” for us, is everything from a factory, refinery, drilling site, training station, airport, shipping ter- minal or office building, etc. We then have 85,000+ ac- tive, paid contractors or suppliers that we vet on behalf of those clients. With customers in over 100 coun- tries, it is a global network, however what we do is not about buying or selling their services - we’re all about the risk, the safety, the qual- ity and sustainability and that experience you’re hav- ing on-site with experienced contractors and suppliers. As an example, some larger customers of ours are John Deer, Amazon, Duke Ener- gy, BASF and American Air- John Herr CEO of Avetta John Herr is the CEO of Avetta.
