SmartBear Software named Justin Teague as the company’s President and Chief Operating Officer.

Teague is joining SmartBear from Bullhorn where, as COO, he owned the growth strategy and execution which led the company through a three year period of considerable sales growth in excess of 40 percent per year.

Previously, Teague was Divisional VP and GM for PTC, where he led the $600 million mechanical engineering global business unit through a $100 million revenue surge. In this new role at SmartBear, Justin is overseeing sales, marketing, product management and strategy functions as well as execution.

“The addition of this new president and COO position will allow SmartBear to accelerate growth in our fast growing and dynamic markets this year and beyond,” said Doug McNary, CEO of SmartBear. “Justin’s extensive general management experience and knowledge of high velocity go-to-market models will be a great addition to the SmartBear team in order to drive revenue globally.”

As Bullhorn’s COO, Teague managed all aspects of the company’s global sales operations and strategic growth initiatives after also managing the customer success organizations including support, services and renewals. He also led the company’s CRM strategy for emerging verticals and the related go-to market strategy. Prior to Bullhorn, for more than 14 years, Teague drove revenue and profit growth within global businesses as a GM for acquired companies at PTC. He also held several sales and operations leadership roles domestically and abroad.

Teague also held various sales and support positions at The Learning Company, a leading educational and consumer software company. He has a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a minor in finance from Providence College.

“It’s a great time to join SmartBear considering their leadership position in the fastest growing segments of the software quality tools market,” said Teague. “There is a tremendous opportunity to help the company navigate its way to higher growth across these segments and in the largely untapped global marketplace.”

Teague reports to SmartBear’s CEO, Doug McNary.
