Geisler is replacing Neeta Rastogi Singh, who held the COO role while unofficially functioning as the CFO from December 2017 until June 2022. Singh is now the CFO/COO at Unreasonable Group.

When Geisler joined as head of finance, it was planned that he would eventually take over the CFO function, a spokesperson said.

Activant has $1.5 billion assets under management, and is headquartered in Greenwich, Connecticut, with offices in New York City, Berlin, and Cape Town.
