Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) February 13, 2009
Configuresoft, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise server configuration management solutions, announced today that company founder and credit policy expert Alex Goldstein has been named CEO and will begin serving in this role immediately.
Goldstein, who co-founded Configuresoft and served as its original CEO from 1999 to mid-2006, has more than 25 years of executive management experience in software, manufacturing, oil, gas and mining, and financial services. Prior to his return as CEO, Goldstein served on the Configuresoft board of directors. Mr. Goldstein replaces Mark Ruport, who previously held the CEO role.
Having just closed the largest deal in company history and closed the books on a record year, Configuresoft's board unanimously selected Goldstein to lead the company in a proactive strategy designed to leverage his knowledge and experience in the financial and credit industries coupled with his extensive background in shaping the company that Configuresoft is today. In the face of troubling issues plaguing these industries, and the potential for new compliance mandates that may accompany any government-backed economic stimulus package, the Configuresoft board expects that Goldstein's expertise in these areas will enable the company to meet the evolving configuration and compliance needs of the financial sector.
"I am very pleased with Configuresoft's growth over the last few years, both in terms of product development and financial performance," Goldstein said. "Configuresoft enables information-based proactive management so its clients can make the right choice the first time, avoiding surprises and costly re-work. The company will continue to focus on configuration and change management, helping clients to slash costs, ensure policy compliance and security, and validate that their IT assets and infrastructure are effective and appropriate to meet their needs. And when they are not, we will provide scalable, auditable remediation support."
"Alex is the best all-around business executive I have ever known," said Louis R. Woodhill, chairman of Configuresoft's board of directors. "From start ups to turnaround situations in industries ranging from solar energy to credit cards, in every case, Alex's leadership has resulted in increased market share and improved financial performance. We look forward to leveraging his expertise in the credit and financial sectors to help guide Configuresoft as we grow to meet market demand."
Goldstein has managed both domestic and international businesses, provided consulting services for start-ups and publicly traded companies, and held senior management positions at British Petroleum, and a top-ten banking institution. Goldstein earned a master's degree in business administration from the Harvard Graduate School of Business and a Bachelor or Arts from New College in Sarasota, Florida.
