Quark Software, a global leader in content services, has announced the appointment of tech industry veteran Victor Shepherd as chief executive officer. Shepherd joins Quark as CEO from Quark’s parent company, Parallax Capital Partners, where he serves as an operating partner. In his new role, Shepherd will lead the organic and inorganic growth of Quark’s solutions for content automation, sales enablement, sales asset management and graphic design software.
“In my years of driving growth and profitability at a variety of tech companies, I have never been more excited than I am about the opportunity we have at Quark to get to the next level,” said Shepherd. “When we combine Quark’s existing solutions for content automation and multimedia design with the acquisition of Docurated for SaaS-based sales enablement, we have an incredibly compelling set of solutions for enterprise organizations that need to transform their approach to business-critical content. We will continue to focus on and leverage our SaaS and AI capabilities to capitalize on a Content Services market that is growing exponentially.”
James Hale, managing director of Parallax Capital Partners said, “Victor Shepherd is a perfect fit for the company. He can call on his vast experience to help expand the company’s market presence and achieve even more operational excellence.”
Raymond Schiavone, former Quark president and chief executive officer, has stepped down to focus on personal priorities. He served as Quark CEO for more than a decade and was instrumental in establishing the company as a leader in enterprise software.
