BQE Software announces new CEO, Victor Limongelli
Limongelli has experience driving profitable growth and international expansion in the software industry

TORRANCE, Calif. – October 20th, 2021 - BQE Software Inc., the top business management software for architecture, engineering, and other professional services firms, is thrilled to welcome Victor Limongelli as its new Chief Executive Officer. Victor brings to BQE a wealth of leadership and growth experience through his 20-year career managing technology and SaaS companies.

Most recently, Victor served as CEO of MobileCause, a fundraising and donor engagement platform for nonprofits, where he led a turnaround that saw the company achieve profitability, strong growth, and ultimately a successful sale of the company. Earlier, at Guidance Software, he was a key leader in its growth from $9 million to $130 million in revenue, as well as its IPO. He served seven years as a public-company CEO; the company pioneered two different software markets – Endpoint Detection and Response and E-Discovery Software – and achieved leadership positions (as rated by Gartner) in both. In-between Guidance Software and MobileCause, he was CEO of AccessData Group, where under his leadership the company grew earnings, returned to bookings growth, and introduced its first cloud product. His impressive track record at software companies perfectly primes him to lead BQE into an exciting new era.

“I am thrilled to be joining BQE as it builds upon an impressive foundation of serving architecture and engineering firms. Our goal is to help our customers grow their businesses by providing them with critical information and key insights about their projects, their billings, and their overall profitability.”, said Victor.

Victor succeeds current BQE CEO, Shafat Qazi, who is transitioning into an advisory role on the board of directors after founding and leading the company for more than 25 years. Shafat was working as an engineer when he created the original BillQuick software to address inefficiencies in professional services’ billing and accounting processes. In 2018, Shafat was named a "Top 50 CEO" by Comparably.

“I have truly enjoyed building BQE from my garage and proud to see it listed among the top software companies for professional service firms. Under the leadership of our new CEO Victor, I am confident that our customers and the company will enjoy accelerated growth and help them transit into the next generation of software and business automation”, said Shafat Qazi.
