KWIPPED Inc., a Wilmington-based online B2B equipment rental marketplace, has hired Wellington Souza as chief technology officer.
 
Souza most recently served as executive director for auxiliary services and CIO at Cape Fear Community College, according to a news release.
 
Souza previously served as vice president for information technology services at Cape Fear Community College since 2013, according to a news release. Before that, he was vice president of strategic business planning and vice president of information services at High Point University.
 
“As a tech-driven startup, the value of adding superior technology leadership is immeasurable – and Wellington Souza represents the best of the best. It’s rare that someone of Wellington’s skill and talent level takes the risk of joining a young startup business, like KWIPPED. So, we are very fortunate and excited to welcome him to our team,” Robert Preville, the company’s founder and CEO, said in the release. Preville is also co-owner of the Greater Wilmington Business Journal. 
 
“I’ve been developing impactful solutions for a diverse clientele my entire career and I intend to apply the same key principles to KWIPPED,” Souza said in the release. “My goal is to ensure KWIPPED is consistently and constantly relevant to our clients. At the end of the day, this role is about leveraging technology to solve problems and generate opportunities for all types of businesses.”
