Reston, VA – Qbase, a rapidly growing provider of information technology services to federal and commercial clients, today announced that Joseph Readyhough has been named as Chief Executive Officer.  Mr. Readyhough will replace Steve Baldwin and Mr. Baldwin will transition to his role as Chairman of the Board.

“Joe is absolutely the right person at the right time for Qbase,” said Baldwin, adding, “Joe’s energy, knowledge and leadership are perfect to guide Qbase as the team of original investors and operators of Qbase seek to step back from the day to day and into their roles as board members and advisors.  I have worked with Joe daily for the past couple years I am certain Joe’s alignment with us culturally will ensure a smooth transition for our clients and employees.”

Readyhough said, “From the moment I joined the firm 30 months ago I knew Qbase was something special.” He added, “I am thankful for the trust the board has in me and the firm foundation the company has built through devotion to its clients.  Much of our work is in emerging technology that is critical to our clients’ future success.  Ahead, I see a clear path in which Qbase builds on that expertise to become more focused and valuable to our customers and shareholders.”

Readyhough joined Qbase in 2016 as Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategy.  Readyhough has more than 20 years of senior management experience, most recently in Corporate Development and Corporate Growth roles at SRA International, a publicly traded firm in which he was responsible for mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning, and major business development initiatives.
