Paul Carr retires as CEO of Genie Solutions
The founder of practice and clinical management software vendor Genie Solutions has announced he is stepping down as CEO of the company after 20 years at the helm.
Paul Carr, a doctor who has built the company into the leading software vendor for specialist medical practitioners with an estimated 50 per cent share of the market, said his retirement was part of a long-standing succession plan.
Dr Carr will remain with Genie as chairman of the board but will no longer be involved in the day to day running of the company.
The new CEO will be Emma Macek, who has most recently been national support manager for the company.
“Genie has grown far beyond my wildest dreams and Emma has been an integral part of Genie’s success,” Dr Carr said. “We are supported by so many fabulous staff, a new CEO was always going to come from within the company.
“Emma has been with us for 11 years. She has a deep knowledge of the program and has trained most of our current staff. In order to maintain the great culture at Genie, Emma was the natural successor.”
Genie Solutions is privately owned by Paul and Robyn Carr and Dr Carr's brothers, Justin and John. They will continue in their respective roles as deputy CIO and CFO.
In addition to dominating the specialist market, Genie is also used by GPs and has built a popular following among doctors who use Macs. The software is also compatible with Microsoft operating systems.
