Skvare Announces New – and Familiar – Ownership

Skvare, LLC begins the next era of Helping Others Help Others. After 15 years of successfully delivering complex technical solutions to local, regional, and national non-profit organizations, the highly-skilled Skvare team will be led into the future by its new owner, Gena Dellett. 

Gena Dellett acquired Skvare as full owner, effective September 1st, 2023.Since joining the Skvare team in 2019, Gena became a shareholder and stepped into the role of COO of Skvare two years ago, leading client relationships and daily operations. That experience has prepared her for this new challenge. Gena’s acquisition of Skvare as Owner and CEO became effective September 1, 2023. 

Gena will continue Skvare’s proven path of actively contributing to the open-source software community and supporting a variety of non-profit organizations with their online strategies. This open-source mindset is a critical part of delivering innovative and reliable solutions to a multitude of clients while leading a growing team.

Commenting on the transition, Peter Petrik, Skvare’s Founder, said “What started 15 years ago as a volunteer project for a local non-profit has grown to an award-winning company, including being named on Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list. Skvare has embedded itself in the open-sourced software community, helping clients deliver on their missions with a diverse team of passionate technical experts. Skvare is in great hands with Gena’s leadership, and I look forward to seeing the company I founded evolve, grow, and make a continuous impact.” 

When asked about the future of Skvare, Gena added, “I am excited to continue doing the great work we’ve always done while also considering new avenues for increasing our impact. Stability is paramount to me and I’m grateful for the opportunity to provide a collaborative and rewarding professional home for our growing team so we can offer reliable, inspired support to every organization we work with. I’ve said often I want us to be the technology company that recommends a pencil when a pencil is the best tool. Skvare's ongoing success as a company is grounded in our ability to make effective recommendations that balance our clients’ needs with their budgets. I look forward to a long future of building and supporting meaning-making spaces…online hubs where people access resources, connect with peers, and take action on issues they care about. That’s how Skvare will keep Helping Others Help Others.”
