Taylor Named Chief Technology Officer of ETQ



ETQ has appointed John Taylor, its former Senior Vice President of Engineering & Operations, to Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Taylor will be responsible for overseeing the strategic direction of ETQ Reliance, the company’s cloud-native Quality Management System (QMS).

“Over the past four years, John has been instrumental in the transformation of ETQ’s engineering organization, leading major initiatives, such as the development of Reliance NXG and the implementation of our agile development process,” said Rob Gremley, CEO, ETQ. “Because of his proven vision and deep understanding of the technology innovation that will drive the next era in data-driven quality, we’re confident that he will fill the big shoes left by our former CTO, Morgan Palmer.”

ETQ announced that its Vice President of Product Management, Jamie Fernandes, has also joined the company’s executive team, expanding his role to include corporate strategy and long-term product direction. Both Fernandes and Taylor will work with ETQ’s Chief Architect, Heera Sharma, who has played a strategic role in the growth of ETQ Reliance.

Taylor has 30 years of software development and senior leadership experience. Prior to joining ETQ in 2018, he was senior vice president with PTC, where he led the software development team responsible for the development and maintenance of its IoT platform and other solutions. Taylor previously held strategic positions with Axeda Corporation, including Vice President, Research & Development and Director of Engineering.

Fernandes brings more than 20 years’ experience in Software as a Service (SaaS), marketing automation, human capital management (HCM) platforms, Product Portfolio Management (PPM) and cybersecurity. Prior to ETQ he held senior-level product positions with Mimecast, Sophos, Sermos and other technology companies.
