Sandra Kurtzig Replaces Herself as CEO and Becomes Executive Chairman After Establishing Kenandy as the Cloud ERP Leader

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2015) - Kenandy, Inc., the leader in cloud ERP for midsize and global enterprises, announced today that Charles ("Chuck") Berger has been appointed Chief Executive Officer. Berger brings more than 30 years' experience to the role, with a strong track record as former CEO of several leading technology companies, in addition to having over a decade of experience as an executive at Apple Computer and Sun Microsystems.

"This is an exciting time for Kenandy as companies of all sizes are transforming into digital enterprises and are rapidly adopting a SaaS ERP strategy, " said Sandra Kurtzig, Kenandy Founder and Executive Chairman. "I am so pleased to welcome Chuck Berger to Kenandy. It has always been my well-communicated intention to step into the Executive Chairman role as soon as Kenandy was successfully on a rapid growth trajectory. Now as Kenandy has proven success with both large, multi-billion dollar companies, as well as smaller, midsize growth companies, it is the perfect time for me to move up to the Executive Chairman role and to turn over the CEO role to Chuck. Chuck has a proven management track record and I am very excited to partner with him in this next phase of Kenandy's growth."

Prior to joining Kenandy, Berger was CEO of Extreme Networks, a leading provider of high-performance networking solutions. He is a seasoned technology executive previously serving as CEO of both large and midsize companies including ParAccel, DVDPlay, Nuance Communications, Vicinity Corporation, AdForce, and Radius. He has also held executive positions in sales, marketing and finance at Apple and Sun Microsystems.

"I couldn't be more excited about this opportunity," said Berger. "Sandy and her team have done an outstanding job establishing Kenandy as the leader in cloud ERP. Building from the ground up a full-function, multi-tenant, cloud ERP system that can compete and win against the largest legacy ERP players is an amazing feat. Kenandy is well positioned in this growth market as every business will be revamping their ERP systems to compete in the new connected economy."

Berger is a trustee of Bucknell University, Presentation High School (in San Jose) and the Naval Memorial Foundation. He received his B.S. in Business Administration from Bucknell University and his M.B.A from Santa Clara University.
