Crystal Decisions today announced the appointment of Jon Judge as president and CEO.
Judge, who was previously with IBM as former general manager of its personal computing division, succeeds Greg Kerfoot who will serve as chairman of Crystal Decision's board of directors.
Judge's new role will allow Kerfoot more time to focus on Crystal Decisions' long-term vision and product strategy, the company said.
Judge has more than 25 years of software and hardware experience at IBM, and a demonstrated track record of successfully growing profit and market share for one of its largest divisions. As president and CEO, Judge will drive the operations and management of the company, and will be responsible for product development, customer satisfaction and partner relationship programs.
Judge, who holds a BA degree in Economics from Harvard College, will take up his new role immediately.
