QuantumArt Gets New CEO

Quantum Art has augmented their leadership team with Joe Barrett joining as the new President and CEO. The San Francisco-based web content management systems provider is gearing up for a strong 2009 and says they are now poised to move into the next stage of their growth, despite volatile -- or we might say severly depressing -- economic conditions. It is nice to stumble upon the odd pocket of optimism now isn't it.

Quantum Art's product, QP7, is a .NET content management platform (see review) that sports attractive qualities both for non-technical content managers and technical .NET developers. Read on for more details.

Joe Barrett

Barrett brings a wide range of expertise to Quantum Art. His executive history includes co-founding CEO of GoGo Images, SVP Marketing and Advanced Technology for Corbis, CEO of Vitessa and SVP Sales and Marketing at R.R. Donnelley.

In addition to his executive experience, Barrett served as a strategy consultant at Alliance Consulting Group and is currently on the Advisory Board of the University of Washington's Information School.

According to Eugene Nikiforov, Co-founder and Chairman of Quantum Art. “Joe has a proven track record in scaling global businesses and in technology enterprise management. His strategic and operational leadership will ensure that Quantum Art continues to meet and beat customers’ expectations during this accelerating growth phase of the company”.

The Road Ahead

All this experience is just what Quantum Art needs if it wants to continue to grow in the Web CMS market. Organizations are looking harder at the costs and benefits of their content management systems, needing to clearly demonstrate the benefits of their selection to their management teams.

Barrett clearly understands this: “Ironically, this volatile economic environment is driving clients to optimize the efficacy and relevance of their various web properties, and our web content management solutions and services enable them to see a significant ROI on these efforts.”

Quantum Art has over 10 years experience delivering web content management systems to a diverse set of clients including commercial enterprises, governments and non-profit organizations. You can read more about their product lines on their (recently updated) website here.
