Quorum Software (Quorum), the global software leader dedicated to the energy industry, has named Paul Langenbahn as president of Quorum Software on Sept. 22. In this position, he will be responsible for worldwide customer-facing operations.
Earlier this year, Quorum merged with Aucerna, a global provider of integrated planning, execution, and reserves software for the energy industry. Operating as Quorum Software, the combined company recently acquired TietoEVRY’s oil and gas software business, including flagship solutions Energy Components and DaWinci. Together, the company now serves more than 1,800 energy customers across 55 countries.
“This year brought incredible growth for Quorum, and we are committed to bringing an incredible customer experience to energy companies worldwide,” Gene Austin, CEO of Quorum Software, said. “Paul has an extensive background leading technology companies, especially when it comes to service, delivery, and support, and I look forward to having him guide Quorum in all aspects of how we advance our operations to empower customers to be successful.”
Most recently, Langenbahn was the executive vice president and president of the commerce business unit of NCR Corp., a global enterprise technology provider for the financial, retail, and hospitality industries. Before NCR, he served as the executive vice president and president of the hospitality division of Radiant Systems from 2007 until the company’s successful sale to NCR in 2011. Throughout his 25 years with Radiant and NCR, he held several senior leadership roles in general management, sales, and professional services.
“With years of leadership and innovation dedicated to energy, Quorum’s vision to transform the business of energy through technology is now accelerating at a global scale,” Langenbahn said. “I’m excited by the opportunity to work closely with Quorum’s 1,400 associates around the world as we deliver solutions that help our customers grow, transform and streamline their operations to meet the future energy needs of the planet.”
