“I was captivated by how Rocket’s culture and technology strengthen each other,” said Shetti. “The connection Andy created between Rocket’s core values and the way we serve our customers and partners is what excites me most about leading Rocket in this next era, as we continue to accelerate the modernization of mission-critical systems and solve our customers’ and partners’ most pressing, highly technical challenges.”
“Andy has done a remarkable job building Rocket Software into a global technology leader, thoughtfully guiding the company’s growth and success. We are delighted to be able to continue working with him at the board level,” said David Humphrey, a Managing Director at Bain Capital Private Equity and a member of Rocket’s Board of Directors.
