The document-management company NetDocuments today named a new CEO, Josh Baxter, who has been president and COO since joining the company last year.

Matt Duncan, who had been CEO since 2014, is stepping into the role of executive chairman, where he will continue to help drive the company’s strategic objectives while also taking time to care for his father, NetDocument cofounder Ken Duncan, who is battling late-stage Parkinson’s disease, the company said.

Marc Duncan, long-time sales leader, has been promoted to strategic sales VP.

“Those in the industry who know Ken, and the special relationship Matt and Ken share, won’t be surprised to hear that Matt feels the need to support Ken during this very difficult time.” cofounder Alvin Tedjamulia, company CTO, said in the announcement. “As executive chairman, Matt will remain involved with NetDocuments and continue to help with strategic planning and corporate initiatives.”

Before joining NetDocuments, Baxter was with IT company Ivanti, where he was vice president, customer success and services. Since joining NetDocuments, he helped lead the recent acquisition of ThreadKM.
