Calibre Systems' long-time CEO Joe Martore will retire this week after 15 years with the company, but he isn’t going far.
Martore has been elected chairman of the employee-owned company. Richard Pineda, who was hired in November as president, has been tapped to be CEO as well.
Martore is succeeding retired Army Lt. Gen. James Terry Scott as chairman.
“We are delighted that Joe Martore will continue to serve Calibre as chair of the board after a successful term as chief executive officer. His extensive experience will provide an immeasurable asset to the company as it moves forward in this dynamic world of digital transformation and change management,” Vice Chairman Joseph Reynolds said in a company release.
Scott had been chairman since 2017.
Martore joined Calibre when it acquired Strategic Management Initiatives in 2004. He was a co-founder of SMI. He became president and CEO in 2015.
Pineda came to Calibre in November 2018 after the company acquired Spear Inc., a company he co-founded. He also was president of the former Dell Services Federal Government.
