As Head of Evisions, Joe Potenza oversees the company’s strategy, growth and operations. He leads a team of industry professionals dedicated to the common mission of delivering innovative software solutions and exceptional support to higher education organizations worldwide.
An information and technology services veteran, Joe has led several companies to achieve long-term, sustained growth and profitability. Prior to Evisions, he served as general manager and senior vice president at Access Information Services, the nation’s largest privately-held information management company. During his tenure, he orchestrated growth of the technology business and established the company as a market disruptor and leader with a “client-first” focus. Joe’s experience also includes roles as president and general manager of leading software provider Solium Transcentive, general manager and executive vice president at Computershare, and managing partner with Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
An active member of the business community, Joe works with fellow executives and entrepreneurs to educate, advise, and support young entrepreneurs to launch new startups. He enjoys cooking for family and friends, as well as entertaining them on Long Island Sound. When he’s not doing this, you’ll find him reading a book, exploring the countryside on a motorcycle or, as his nickname Major Troublemaker implies, perhaps he’ll be making you laugh with his sense of humor and reputation for legendary pranks.
Joe earned his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Fordham University in New York City.
