Xtime names new CFO


Xtime has named Jim Doehrman as its new chief financial officer.

Doehrman joins Xtime, a U.S.-based customer relationship management (CRM) and scheduling platform company, from Gracenote.

During his almost nine years at Gracenote, he led the company to 300 per cent revenue growth, culminating in the company’s acquisition by Sony in 2008, Xtime said in a release.

Gracenote integrates its music technologies into nearly every automaker’s entertainment systems.

Doehrman also served as CFO of ADP’s Automotive Claims Management software division, and before that as chief operating and financial officer for Versata, a publicly traded data-intensive web application company. He also served at the financial helm of Octane, a customer relationship management (CRM) software player, where he helped manage the company’s $3.6 billion merger with E.piphany.

“Jim's extensive experience with automotive and technology leaders like ADP, Octane, Versata and Gracenote, compliments his demonstrated financial leadership. Jim’s skills are exactly what Xtime needs to help guide us through our continued rapid growth and international expansion,” noted Neal East, Xtime CEO.

Xtime offers cloud-based CRM and scheduling platforms for automotive manufacturers and dealer service departments. It currently counts more than 5,000 dealerships as customers and has registered almost 2 million consumers.

It is also the exclusive or preferred provider for automotive manufacturers including Hyundai, VW, Kia, BMW, Nissan, Lexus, Infiniti, Toyota Canada, Toyota US, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Chrysler.
