Amyx Promotes William Schaefer to President, CEO
William Schaefer, President and CEO of Amyx

Amyx has promoted William Schaefer as the company’s CEO and president, succeeding Satya Akula, who announced his retirement in November. Akula was one of the original group of investors that purchased Amyx in 2008, and in 2011 he assumed the role of Amyx’s president and CEO. During his tenure, Akula grew the company’s revenue with an average year-over-year growth rate of 30 percent.

“It is an honor to lead Amyx, especially in this time of record growth. Without hesitation, I can confidently say that we have one of the hardest working and most dedicated employee bases in the industry,” Schaefer said.

Schaefer has more than two decades of successful leadership experience in the technology sector.  He joined Amyx more than 10 years ago. Since 2016, Schaefer has served as Amyx’s chief operating officer and member of the Board of Directors.

With Amyx, Schaefer developed advanced capabilities in cybersecurity and software development. He has exceeded growth targets, contributing to Amyx’s growth from a small business to a mid-tier company.

“From the technology we develop to improving warfighter readiness, to the analytics support that helps sustain the integrity of our capital markets, each day we’re making real contributions that positively affect our Country. I’m excited to continue our customer and employee-first culture that has been paramount to Amyx’s success,” Schaefer added.

As COO, Schaefer managed the execution of more than 30 contracts, and has received above industry average CPARS ratings across Amyx’s customer base. He has led the capture of more than $560 million in new business since 2017.

“On behalf of the Board, I have full confidence that Bill will continue to set us apart as a customer-focused technology services provider for years to come.  His previous role as COO and knowledge of Amyx’s customers and management team makes for a very seamless transition for both him and the organization,” said Scott Amey, Amyx’s chairman of the Board.
