VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ACL, a software provider helping governments and the world's largest companies quantify risk, stamp out fraud and optimize performance, announced Brendan Quigley, CPA, has been named the company's new Chief Financial Officer. With more than 25 years of financial leadership experience, he will direct the company's corporate finance and risk management functions, as well as support the Senior Leadership Team by developing and executing on strategic business goals.
Quigley joins ACL at a critical moment in its history, as the firm recently navigated a complete overhaul of its business model. In less than 12 months, ACL converted 99 percent of its global customer base to a SaaS-based subscription model.
"I say it often, but our people are fundamental to the success of our mission and growth strategy at ACL," said Laurie Schultz, President and CEO at ACL. "Brendan brings to us not only a very seasoned financial planning acumen but a real, genuine bias for aligning team culture with the company strategy. I am thrilled to welcome Brendan and his family to Vancouver and look forward to bringing his experience to bear on our next challenges."
Quigley comes to ACL from Sage Software, where he was CFO & SVP Financial Planning & Analysis for the company's North American region. In that role, he successfully led a large team accountable for business operation effectiveness, strategic financial planning and a subscription model transition. Quigley and his team also oversaw changes in corporate culture and improved cross-functional collaboration across a complex matrix business structure, as well as overseeing M&A activity.
"I feel great about joining ACL at this stage in the company's trajectory. As a risk professional myself, I have a special appreciation for ACL's vision to lead GRC professionals toward becoming sought after in their own organizations through a data-driven approach to managing risk and optimizing performance," said Quigley. "ACL is a company that's making a difference to the way GRC professionals do their jobs and add value for their organizations, and it's exciting to be part of the team."
Quigley holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from the University of California at Los Angeles. He is also a Certified Public Accountant in the State of California.
