Blackbaud has named Tony Boor, its senior vice president and CFO, as interim president and CEO of the Daniel Island-based software company as of Aug. 31.
President and CEO Marc Chardon announced in January he planned to step down sometime this year after leading the company for seven years.
Boor, who will remain as CFO, will serve in the interim position until a permanent CEO is appointed. The board continues its search for a permanent CEO.
Blackbaud Board Chairman Andrew Leitch said in a news release that Boor “has helped set the overall strategy for the company, and under his leadership we have delivered solid financial results, enhanced operational efficiencies and positioned the company for improved long-term revenue growth.”
The decision for Chardon to step down was made jointly between the CEO and the board of directors, according to a Blackbaud news release from earlier this year. Chardon plans to pursue business interests as an adviser and investor in technology startups, according to the release.
“On behalf of the board and everyone at Blackbaud, I am appreciative of Marc Chardon’s outstanding leadership and contributions over the last seven years and his efforts to ensure the leadership succession at Blackbaud is successful,” Leitch said. “We wish him well in his future endeavors.”
Boor joined the company in November 2011 and helped execute company’s acquisition of Convio, a provider of on-demand solutions for nonprofits.
Before coming to Blackbaud, Boor served as an executive with Brightpoint Inc., most recently as its executive vice president, CFO and treasurer. He also served as the interim president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa during Brightpoint’s restructuring of those regions.
Boor holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from New Mexico State University.
Blackbaud works with more than 28,000 customers in more than 60 countries to provide software for the nonprofit and education sectors.
