Quire, the best-in-class SaaS technical report writing platform, announced it has expanded the company’s leadership team to drive accelerated investments in product innovation, client service, and market expansion. Following a recent growth investment by SSM Partners, Quire has tapped SaaS industry veteran Chris Connell to join as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), with company founder Kelly L. Stratton taking on the role of President and Chief Product Officer.
Connell will leverage his experience leading successful software companies to drive Quire’s strategic direction and operational execution, with a focus on delivering the report writing capabilities consultants need to ensure consistent, high-quality deliverables. He will also direct Quire’s growth, scaling the business to bring the power of the Quire report writing ecosystem to more users and more service lines and solidifying the company’s market leadership position.
Stratton’s new role focuses on driving product innovation, to ensure Quire’s market-leading platform continues to meet the evolving needs of its clients and the industry at large. She will engage with customers and prospects, assess and stay current with their changing report writing needs, accelerate the product roadmap, and direct product enhancements that keep the Quire platform best in class.
“Quire has always been committed to enhancing the report writing platform our clients love and value, and our strategic leadership expansion will keep us delivering on that commitment,” Stratton said. “As CEO, Chris will leverage SSM’s recent investments in the company and its experience scaling successful software companies like Quire. And as President and Chief Product Officer, I’ll dedicate my time to making the Quire platform even more powerful and beneficial for our clients.”
“I’m thrilled to join Quire as the company embarks on a new phase of investment and growth,” Connell shared. “Kelly has built an amazing company, an unbelievably talented team, and a world-class SaaS solution. I look forward to working together to accelerate Quire’s growth, expand our solutions, and continue to deliver significant ROI for our clients.”
Stratton and Connell will both serve on the Quire Board of Directors, and Stratton will remain the company’s largest individual shareholder.
