Autotask Chairman Godgart Ends Tenure to Pursue New Venture

29 de septiembre de 2011
EAST GREENBUSH, NY - Autotask Corporation, the world’s leading provider of hosted IT business management software, today announced that Bob Godgart will end his tenure as chairman of the board effective October 1, 2011, to pursue a new venture.  Godgart, who founded the software company with Dick Frederick in 2001 and led it through 10 years of consecutive growth, stepped back from day to day operations earlier this year.

A pioneer in the development of cloud-based applications and software-as-a-service (SaaS), Autotask software is currently used by more than 40,000 IT service providers in 54 countries to run their businesses more efficiently and more profitably.  The company employs approximately 200 people in the United States, United Kingdom, China and India, and recently announced plans to expand global operations and translate its software into 6 languages including German, Spanish, French, Italian, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese.

“I want to thank Bob for his entrepreneurial passion and dedication to Autotask and its Community,” said George McNamee, Autotask board member.  “We wish Bob all good luck in his new enterprise.” 

Godgart, an award-winning serial entrepreneur with more than 20 years’ experience, successfully launched and led three software companies, and was a senior partner of Exponential Business Development Company, a seed-stage venture capital firm.  Godgart continues to serve as chairman of the board of directors of the Computing Technology Industry Association, Inc. (CompTIA), the leading non-profit trade association advancing the global interests of IT professionals and companies. 

“I'm proud of what Autotask has accomplished and want to thank all of our customers and partners who believed in us.  Next, I see an exciting opportunity with our international expansion,” Godgart said. “But I'm an entrepreneur at heart and want to take this opportunity to solve another real problem in our industry from the ground up.  I wish Autotask every success as they continue to grow.”
