The eight-year tenure of GenomeQuest Inc. CEO Ron Ranauro has come to a close.
Ranauro resigned his position at the Westborough, Mass.-based developer of cloud-based genome sequencing data management software and will be succeeded by vice president of products and services Richard Resnick, the company said.
"Under [Ranauro‘s] leadership GenomeQuest has grown from a young start-up to a leadership position in IP sequence search and sequence data management. … The rest of the board and I wish Ron the best in his future endeavors," board member and GenomeQuest investor Sandra Panem said in prepared remarks.
Before joining the company, Resnick was CEO of Mosaic Bioinformatics, which was sold to NetGenics. He was also formerly global bioinformatics software head for Wyeth and a member of the Human Genome Project at MIT. The company said Resnick will remain VP during the transition.
The growing company hired a new chief marketing officer in July.
