Fullbay has announced Patrick McKittrick as its new chief executive officer, effective November 15, 2021. McKittrick succeeds current CEO and Founder Jacob Findlay, who will transition to executive chairman with the company he co-founded in 2014. Prior to joining Fullbay, McKittrick was CEO at FieldRoutes (formerly PestRoutes), and brings years of experience with a proven track record guiding software companies to a path of growth and success. Before FieldRoutes, he held executive positions with several leading companies, including Infor, PeopleAnswers and Hyphen Solutions.
“When I approached our board to recommend this transition, we knew we would need a strong leader to accelerate the success Fullbay has achieved to date. Patrick is a customer-centric CEO who has run businesses catering to a blue-collar workforce and is familiar with many of the opportunities and challenges facing Fullbay, so I know he fits our needs perfectly,” Findlay said. “In addition, he has relationships with a number of Fullbay executives and has followed the business for years. We feel his experience will elevate this role and our company to a new level.”
McKittrick and Findlay will work closely to ensure a seamless transition for customers, partners and employees, utilizing McKittrick’s acumen of operational excellence and Findlay’s deep understanding of customer needs to accelerate innovation and drive greater value for customers and the industry.
“I’m excited to be a part of the continued growth of this company, which has demonstrated its value and purpose in a number of ways, from working to help alleviate the parts shortage through Fullbay Marketplace, to giving back to the heavy-duty industry through Fullbay Cares,” stated McKittrick. “The Fullbay platform is innovative and extremely effective at solving some of the most pressing needs facing independent heavy-duty repair shops and internal fleet maintenance departments. I’m looking forward to helping guide our team towards even bigger solutions to benefit our customers and the industry as a whole.”
McKittrick earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of North Carolina.
