Absolute Appoints new COO

Absolute Software announced today the appointment of 11-year Dell veteran Carter McCrary as Chief Operating Officer. McCrary brings more than 20 years of experience in sales, marketing and operations and will be tasked with driving operational strategy, structure and effectiveness across Absolute’s global sales, marketing, operations and business development organizations.

McCrary joined Absolute earlier this year as Senior Vice President, Strategy. Considering Dell’s history with Costco, my guess is that he was instrumental in getting Absolute into their stores as well.
