Buege to focus on further improving customers’ CrashPlan backup experience with self-service options and an easier to use interface

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — May 25, 2016 — / — Code42, the leader in endpoint data protection and security for the enterprise, today announced that Steve Buege, former CEO and chairman of the board at Quantum Retail Technology, has joined the company as senior vice president and general manager of its new consumer, small business (CSB) division.

In this role, Buege will develop and implement Code42’s CrashPlan consumer and small business strategies. In particular, he will focus on initiatives that improve the CrashPlan experience, with expanded self-service options and ease-of-use enhancements.

“Whether it is family photos, tax documents, a college thesis or business plans, consumers and small businesses store irreplaceable files on their laptops and devices,” said Joe Payne, president and CEO at Code42. “With a depth of experience across B2C and B2B, Steve is focused on how to best serve our consumer and small business customers with the easiest to use, most dependable backup solution on the market.”

“With a strong brand, top-rated solution and lots of room for growth, CrashPlan represents an ideal opportunity to apply my expertise in scaling SaaS businesses,” said Buege. “I look forward to improving on CrashPlan’s already intuitive user interface and up-leveling self-service options so that backup becomes a true ‘set it and forget it’ experience for our consumer and small business customers.”

Buege possesses more than 15 years of executive-level experience in the software and SaaS industries. Prior to joining Code42, Buege was CEO and chairman of Quantum Retail Technology, a global data analytics company, where he was responsible for developing and implementing the firm’s business strategy. Before Quantum Retail Technology, Buege was chief technology officer at Ascend Learning, and also previously served as president and CEO at several Thomson Reuters software business units.

The addition of Buege further strengthens Code42’s executive leadership team, creating momentum in the rapidly growing endpoint data protection and security market. The company recently raised $85 million in Series B funding led by JMI Equity and New Enterprise Associates, Inc. (NEA), and hired leaders from eBay, Adaptive Insights, Datalogix and SumTotal.
