Jordan Copland brings strategic financial and operations expertise to help accelerate the company's next phase of growth
HOUSTON, Sept. 20, 2016 /CNW/ -- Quorum, the industry leader in software for hydrocarbon and energy business management, today announced the appointment of Jordan Copland as executive vice president and chief financial officer. Copland will lead the company's financial and operations strategies. He is joining Quorum's seasoned executive team to advance the company's mission of delivering next-generation integrated software and solutions for the energy industry.
"This is a time of transformation at Quorum as we look to grow our business and expand our technology footprint within the energy industry," said Perry Turbes, CEO of Quorum. "With an impressive track record of more than 30 years in domestic and international finance and operations, Jordan has extensive experience architecting and implementing successful transformational roadmaps that can accelerate our next phase of growth."
Copland joins Quorum from Omnitracs, LLC, a global pioneer of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, where he held the position of chief financial officer. Before joining Omnitracs, LLC, Copland held CFO positions at Harbor Freight Tools, a vertically-integrated, private label retailer of tools and equipment, and GSI Commerce, an e-commerce, multichannel and interactive marketing technology solutions provider. He also served previously in a host of senior finance and business development positions during his nine-year tenure at The Walt Disney Company.
"Unlike other oil and gas software companies that are falling behind and struggling amidst market volatility, Quorum is investing in innovation," said Copland. "Given my history and experience working within the C-suite to develop, drive and then support new go-to-market strategies, I could not be more excited to join Quorum at this pivotal stage."
After a transition period, Copland will assume responsibility for supporting Quorum's growth strategies, overseeing financial operations and driving operational excellence for the company. He will report to CEO Perry Turbes.
Copland succeeds Rick Piacenti in the role of CFO. "I want to personally thank Rick for his dedication to Quorum over these past five years," said Turbes. "Rick's contributions have been essential to building the company's strong financial foundation."
Copland's hire comes after a string of recent highlights and solid growth for Quorum. The company announced an industry first with the release of its myQuorum user experience platform, closely followed by new software releases for natural gas processing, gathering, and transportation. Quorum plans to announce the availability of new and enhanced solutions for oil and gas field operations later this fall.
