BELLINGHAM, Wash., Jan. 6, 2022 – In honor of its 30th anniversary, Faithlife, the leading Church technology company and makers of Logos Bible Software, is restructuring its leadership team as it continues to meet the needs of Christian leaders worldwide. Co-founder and current CEO Bob Pritchett is transitioning to the new role of Executive Chairman while Vik Rajagopal, current CFO, moves into the CEO role.
“January marks 30 years from Faithlife’s formal incorporation and my official start date as CEO, and I’m proud to say today we are positioned to grow faster and to serve even more Bible students and churches than ever before,” said Pritchett. “This transition to Executive Chairman allows me to focus on company-wide initiatives and new products and services while positioning Vik to take the reins and further Faithlife’s ability to impact our customers. I’m excited about this new season and how it will allow us to make an even bigger difference in the world as we help individuals grow in the light of the Bible.”
Pritchett developed his first Bible software program, which allowed users to search a digital King James Bible, at age 15. In 1991, Pritchett and a friend created the first version of Logos Bible Software and in 1992 founded Logos Research Systems, which would later be rebranded as Faithlife. Today, Faithlife offers an array of innovative apps, software, books and educational tools that foster growth in churches and individuals by keeping Scripture at the center.
Rajagopal steps into the CEO position with extensive leadership experience and a passion for equipping and serving the global Church. Before joining Faithlife in December 2020 as Chief Financial Officer, Rajagopal spent 10 years at Amazon where he held leadership roles across finance, retail leadership and product management. Prior to Amazon, Rajagopal was an investment banker in Wells Fargo Securities’ middle-market group. Rajagopal earned his B.A. in History from Yale University and MBA. from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He serves as an advisor to Petros Network, a Christian nonprofit that equips indigenous leaders in developing nations to lift their unreached communities through spiritual, social and economic transformation.
“I am honored to move into this role, particularly as now more than ever Church leaders are in need of digital tools to engage and disciple their communities,” said Rajagopal. “For three decades, Bob has invested his time and expertise into growing this company, and I am excited to work together with him to find continued ways to serve the Church through technological solutions built on the Bible. It’s been a pleasure working with Bob and the Faithlife team over the last year, and I look forward to continuing to find new and differentiated ways to meet the needs of our customers and serve the global Church.”
