PRESS RELEASE: Richard Fugett Announces Retirement as CEO and President; Reed Konnerth Named Successor

MOKENA, IL (May 8, 2014) – Intelligent Solutions, Inc., a full-service network services provider located just outside of Chicago, IL, announced the retirement of CEO and President, Richard Fugett. Reed Konnerth, Chief Operating Officer of Intelligent Solutions will succeed Fugett as the company’s CEO and President.

Fugett co-founded Intelligent Solutions in 1990, with the goal of providing smart technology solutions with the highest level of customer service. In 2004, he launched CAPERS®, a top-tier, law enforcement and public safety software provider serving agencies and departments of all sizes nationwide. Like Intelligent Solutions, Fugett launched CAPERS with the commitment of listening and serving its customers.

“For the past 25 years, I have focused on building a company that is committed to the highest level  of customer service,” said Fugett. “We have come a long way in 25 years,  and we have built an incredibly successful and motivated team to support and move the company forward. This has put me in a desireable position to step back and spend more time with my family, and a lot less time flying around the country. Because of this, I feel that now is the perfect opportunity to not only announce my retirement, but to announce Reed Konnerth as my successor.”

Fugett’s successor, Reed Konnerth, joined Intelligent Solutions in 2008 as the Director of Sales & Marketing and immediately began developing a customer-focused sales team to help further carry out the company’s vision. Konnerth also led the expansion of CAPERS as a national software provider; which in 2010, led him to be named as Chief Operating Officer.

“I am truly humbled and thankful for this opportunity. Richard’s commitment to customer service has been an integral part of the company for almost 25 years and it’s ingrained in everything we do,” said Reed Konnerth. “We are thankful for Richard’s foresight and tenure with Intelligent Solutions, and will continue to serve our customers in the highest standard. I would like to personally thank Rich for his 25 years of vision and service, and wish him nothing but the best as he enjoys some of the rewards for all of his hard work with more time and freedom to be with his family.”
