Deltek Inc. has officially appointed chief financial officer and acting chief executive Mike Corkery to the CEO role, less than two months after he assumed the post upon the departure of Kevin Parker.

Corkery has been with Deltek since January 2010 when he joined as CFO. The company plans to announce a new CFO shortly. 

“I am thrilled to lead the Deltek team as its CEO,” said Corkery.  “We are in the strongest position in our history with the industry’s broadest and deepest capabilities for project-based businesses, complemented by a global team that is committed to delivering superior results for our customers.  Our team has an enormous opportunity to leverage our numerous strengths to grow revenue and expand Deltek’s presence around the world.  As we embark on that journey together, our commitment to our customers will be unwavering.  We will continue to aggressively deliver the innovative solutions that our customers demand.”

Last month Deltek released its new Deltek Maconomy Public Accounting product, an ERP system built specifically for CPA firms to help them streamline procecess from administration to entire practice management tasks.
