Q&A With Perforce CEO Janet Dryer on the Seapine Acquisition

by Guest



By Arnav Joshi

Perforce Software moved corporate headquarters from California to Minnesota over the summer as former HelpSystems CEO Janet Dryer took the CEO role.

Formed in 1995, the company specializes in version management and collaboration software for the enterprise, now with 300 global employees across six offices.

With backing from PE firm Summit Partners Perforce acquired Ohio-based Seapine Software earlier this month; Dryer expanded on the deal for us thanks to our M&A underwriter Franklin Partners.
