Mark Malis
President QQSolutions

Our brand is all about providing our customers with the best value in technology solutions and being our customers' most responsive partner.”

Mark Malis is QQSolutions’ CEO and co-founder, as well as the original developer of the company's first Rating and Agency Management System (AMS) products. Mark has more than 25 years of experience in the insurance and software industries, including working as an agent for an insurance agency.

Mark developed QQSolutions’ original AMS, AutoFile, in a computer science class while attending the University of Florida. At the time, the initiative was intended for a senior class project, but after his father’s insurance agency implemented the system, the response was overwhelming. Upon graduating UF with his Bachelor of Science degree in Computer & Information Engineering, Mark continued to advance the AMS, and sell it to other insurance agencies.

Under Mark’s leadership, QQSolutions has become one of the top solutions providers in the Independent Insurance agency market, with more than 22,000 users nationwide. Without any outside funding, he has led QQSolutions to increased revenue growth every year for the past 25 years since its founding.

Mark has also focused on creating a positive work environment, with bagel Fridays, team lunches, birthday celebrations, as well as supporting the “QQ Fun Zone” – a group of employees who create events to foster teamwork and camaraderie.

Mark runs the company with his wife Candace, who helps with strategic planning, operational management, marketing and finance.

Outside of work, Mark and Candace enjoy spending time with their son, Jake.
