We’re excited to share some big news at Quickbase. Boston software veteran Edward Jennings, who has served as an executive at Mimecast and Veracode, has been named our new CEO.
This news comes amid a surge in interest for Quickbase (we’ve doubled our enterprise customer base in a year!) and on the back of our recent announcement that we’ve made a significant investment in our ability to integrate to hundreds of cloud and on-premise software solutions.
Rick Willett, who has served as CEO and chairman of the board for the past four years, is stepping down to retire and focus on philanthropic efforts, and we’re all thankful for what Rick has done to turn Quickbase into a market-leading low-code platform.
Ed has a proven track record of accelerating growth at SaaS companies through innovative market strategies and operational excellence. Most recently, as COO at Mimecast, he helped bring the company public in 2015, grew their annual revenue from roughly $80M to over $400M in four years and scaled the team from 350 employees to 1,800, while expanding offices across North America, Europe and the Middle East.
We recently spoke with Ed about why he came to Quickbase, the opportunities he sees for the company and his predictions for low-code software.
