Because of this, there is significant market opportunity for consultancies like Quisitive to help solve complex business problems," said Mike Reinhart, CEO and co-founder of Quisitive. "What sets us apart is our alliance with Microsoft, which enables us to scale in lockstep with its Azure offering. Our business vision and long-term goal is to pursue an accelerated acquisition approach to extend the footprint of our Microsoft partnership, as we move quickly to consolidate Microsoft partners in North America. With her deep expertise and proven performance in informed financial decision-making, Stephanie will be an invaluable asset to our organization and a welcome addition to our dynamic team as we look to become the Microsoft Partner of the Future."
Prior to joining Quisitive, Ratza held executive positions with The Descartes Systems Group, Open Text Corporation, MKS Inc., and IPICO Inc., and worked for private companies such as BlueCat Networks Inc., Resolver Inc., and Kiite Inc.

"I couldn't think of a better time than now to join the Quisitive team, as they work toward becoming the premier Microsoft provider and Partner of the Future," said Stephanie Ratza, newly-appointed CFO of Quisitive. "As someone who has spent my career entrenched in the financial inner workings of various private and public growth technology companies, it truly excites me to know we'll be helping guide enterprise customers through cloud adoption and the application of new and emerging technologies. We're not just creating a culture of trust, transparency, and efficiency; we're helping them achieve longevity and realize sustainable, scalable business impact that translates to a tangible competitive business advantage."
