Procede Software has named Larry Kettler as its new chief executive officer, responsible for guiding the company’s short- and long-term growth and expansion.
Kettler, a technology veteran with more than 25 years of experience in building successful companies in diverse industries, most recently was executive vice president of business development at MIR3 Inc., where he was responsible for day-to-day strategic company initiatives and overseeing the company’s corporate development activities.
With Kettler’s appointment, managing partner and industry software pioneer Peter Kneale will turn his focus and energy to growing the company’s dealer management system platform, Excede DMS. Kettler will have oversight for all daily business operations and says he is committed to increasing Procede Software’s investment into research and development.
Kettler also will lead Procede Software in extending professional services offerings to include advanced process consulting, new training services and professional development tools that will help customers maximize their return on investment.
