Vehlo Names New Executive Leadership Team to Drive New Season of Growth

Josh Weis succeeds Michelle Fischer as CEO upon her move to chair the company’s board of directors.

Vehlo, a distinguished leader in software and financial solutions for the automotive repair industry, today announced additions to its executive leadership team, including newly appointed Chief Executive Officer Josh Weis, who succeeds Michelle Fischer upon her transition to chair the Vehlo board of directors.

Weis joins Vehlo with nearly a decade in software leadership, first with Protect My Ministry, which later became part of Ministry Brands where he served as executive vice president and a key player in the company’s revenue growth, M&A activity, and multibillion-dollar recapitalizations. Weis was most recently CEO of Office Pride, a commercial cleaning services franchisor, leading the company to record-breaking growth over the last two years.

After four years at Vehlo’s helm, Fischer will become chairwoman of the company’s board of directors. Since joining the company in late 2019, she grew the platform into one of the industry’s favorites, taking Vehlo from 6,000 rooftops, five products and 100 employees to over 30,000 rooftops, 15 products, and 500 employees with triple digit net customer retention. Under her leadership, Vehlo completed two recapitalizations, the first led by PSG and the second led by current control investor Greater Sum Ventures (GSV).

Additionally, Vehlo has elevated longtime Chief Operating Officer Brian Wagner to president and COO, and added three new executives to the C-suite. Bill Roselli joins as chief financial officer, Rob Hurst is named chief revenue officer, and Robert Patrick is appointed to the newly created role of chief product & technology officer. The trio has decades of experience guiding SaaS platforms to profitable growth, and each has held leadership roles in a variety of private-equity sponsored businesses.
