Det norske programvareselskapet QuestBack har vært gjennom 12 år med sammenhengende vekst og stor suksess både i Norge og internasjonalt. Ivar Kroghrud har sittet ved roret hele veien, og har også gjort seg personlig bemerket i kåringer som bl.a. Entrepeneur Of The Year. Kroghrud har også en betydelig aksjepost i selskapet. «Jeg tror det er sunt for QuestBack å slippe nye krefter til i den fasen selskapet er inne i nå,» sier Kroghrud, som fra 1. februar inntar en rolle som strategisk rådgiver i QuestBack, i tillegg til styrevervet.

Terje Bakken, QuestBacks styreformann, sier «Ivar Kroghrud har gjort en fantastisk jobb i å bygge opp et norsk programvareselskap i verdensklasse og vi er glade for at vi får beholde ham videre også i ny rolle. QuestBack er nå unikt posisjonert og tar mål av seg til å bli verdensledende i sin nisje. Vi er svært tilfreds med at vi får med oss en så erfaren leder som Frank Møllerop, som vi vet har alle de kvalifikasjoner som skal til for å lykkes med en så ambisiøs målsetting.» Før han tar over lederansvaret i QuestBack har Møllerop i mange år hatt topplederstillinger i andre IT selskaper som SAS Institiute og Infostream ASP. «Vi gleder oss til å jobbe sammen med Frank og støtte ham i jobben med å skape fortsatt vekst og suksess for QuestBack,» avslutter Bakken.

Frank Møllerop, påtroppende CEO, sier «Jeg har fulgt med på QuestBack fra sidelinjen i mange år, som et av Norges aller mest spennende IT-selskaper. Når denne muligheten kom, følte jeg det matchet meget godt med det som har vært min viktigste driver lenge, nemlig å skape bærekraftig topplinjevekst i software-selskaper. I tillegg er produktporteføljen til QuestBack perfekt posisjonert for de nye IT-trendene rundt feedback, sosiale medier og lønnsom utvikling av kunderelasjoner. Det ligger ett stort uforløst potensiale for alle virksomheter i å ta i bruk de produktene som QuestBack tilbyr markedet.» Frank Møllerop kommer fra stillingen som Vice President i Global Energy Business Unit i SAS Institute Inc, og overtar roret i QuestBack 1. Februar 2013.
