HOUSTON, November 2, 2018 – Quorum Software, the leader in digital transformation for the oil and gas industry, today announced executive leadership changes with the retirement of Perry Turbes, CEO and appointment of J. Charles Goodman as Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Goodman will support the executive team during the transition as well as lead the search for Turbes’ replacement. Goodman is a 30-year veteran of the energy and utility industries. A graduate of Texas Tech University with a degree in Petroleum Engineering , he was most recently the CEO of PowerPlan Inc., a former Thoma Bravo portfolio company. Prior to that, Goodman was the CEO of P2 Energy Solutions.

“We are excited to have Charles join the Quorum Board of Directors as Executive Chairman,” said Scott Crabill, a Managing Partner at Thoma Bravo. “He brings a wealth of executive leadership experience from his decades in the energy sector and has an accomplished and long-standing relationship with Thoma Bravo. We look forward to working with Charles and the Quorum management team on Quorum’s next stage of growth.”

Perry Turbes will stay on as a member of the Board of Directors. A member of the Quorum team for nineteen years, Turbes led the transition of Quorum into Quorum Software, the preferred software provider to the energy industry.

“After nearly two decades at Quorum, I felt it was time to retire,” said outgoing CEO Perry Turbes. “I am very thankful to all the colleagues, employees, customers, partners and friends along the way that were part of building Quorum’s success. I’m extremely proud of Quorum and its leadership, and excited about its future success.”
