TeamQuest, a global leader in IT Service Optimization, today announced that longtime CEO Jerred Ruble has communicated his intention to retire as chief executive officer. Ruble, who will remain on the board of directors after retiring, initiated a transition committee to search for his successor, which is now underway.
As one of the original founders, Ruble led the engineering organization for 13 years before accepting the position of President and CEO in 2004. As CEO he has led the company through a successful span of growth, driving the company’s entry into new markets, as well as guiding the company's financing, acquisition and operational strategy. He leaves the company well-positioned for continued growth.

“Now is the right time for TeamQuest to begin the transition to new leadership,” said Ruble. “We are in the early stages of implementing several long-range initiatives and I look forward to helping choose and prepare our next leader. I’ve been privileged to lead one of the best software companies in the world. We started from humble beginnings and have always made decisions with one thought in mind - do what’s right. I’m proud of all we’ve accomplished, and we are ready for the next chapter.”
