Monserrat became RES Software CEO in April 2015 after serving as Citrix's senior vice president of Worldwide Sales & Service since July 2008. At Citrix, Monserrat was part of the executive leadership team that grew the company from hundreds of millions to more than $3B in revenue by 2014, and was instrumental in crafting the strategy that helped Citrix grow from a single-product company, to a multi-product industry leader. He lives in Boca Raton, Fla.

I look forward to helping implement this transformation, the positive results of which already are apparent in Seacoast's digital and financial metrics."
About Seacoast's director development program, Hudson noted, "Beginning in 2013, we actively recruited new talent to our board to increase its diversity of thought and experience and better align overall board capability with Seacoast's strategic focus. During this period, we have appointed an independent lead director and, with Al's appointment announced today, have added eight new directors, all of whom have the skills needed to help navigate the changing environment impacting our business.
