Quark Inc. announced last Wednesday that Raymond Schiavone, a veteran software company CEO and former GE executive, has joined the company as president and CEO.
“Quark remains the best-of-breed choice for the creative professional, as demonstrated by our recent QuarkXPress 7 release,” said Schiavone. “Over the coming years, our customers will see us not only growing our product line, but also providing additional value through expanded strategic partnerships and focus on customer service and support.
