Quark named a new CEO today. Raymond Schiavone, "a veteran software company CEO and former GE executive," has joined Quark as President and CEO, replacing Linda Chase who was "acting President," and will remain with the company as Senior VP of Enterprise Products.
Prior to joining Quark, Schiavone was President and CEO of Arbortext, Inc., an industry leader in XML-based authoring and automated publishing software.
Quark says this move signals a new era and will allow the company to aggressively take Quark to the next level.
I hope he plans to do something about that unnecessary audio assault that Quark's homepage greets me with every time I load it. I'll let him get settled into the corner office first before starting a letter writing campaign about that, though.
