RTI has appointed Mark Derus as the company’s CEO. Derus will focus on driving business growth globally and expanding the company’s commercial market presence. He will continue to build on the initiatives RTI has implemented over the past three years, including new policies like a three-year warranty, robust training programs and the creation of a global Dealer Experience team. With the groundwork laid by these initiatives, former CEO, Ed McConaghay, has decided it was time for a leadership transition and will remain in an advisory role.
“Mark has an extensive background in leading technology-driven companies, combined with finance and business development expertise,” Kevin Marty, CTO and Co-Founder, RTI, said. “His track record of leadership at RTI and other successful companies made Mark the obvious choice to take over the CEO role.”
Performing as the CFO at RTI since 2017, Derus has a long history of executing business strategy, leading mergers and acquisitions, partnering with key businesses and guiding companies through overall business growth. With an extensive background in technology, finance and accounting, he has held the title of CFO, as well as other executive positions, for NetSPI, Quantum Retail Technology, Spanlink Communications/ConvergeOne, IDeaS Revenue Optimization and Visual Circuits.
