LOS GATOS, Calif., May 31, 2016 – Centric Software is pleased to announce the appointment of Fabrice Canonge as Senior Vice President Global Sales. Centric Software develops technologies for the most prestigious names in fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods.
Earlier this year, Centric announced its 4th consecutive year of phenomenal growth. Overwhelming marketing adoption validates the company’s innovation strategy based on leveraging cloud and mobility technologies to extend PLM beyond a traditional footprint. Centric innovations, coupled with its Agile Deploymentsm technology, enable quick time to value. Canonge’s role is to continue to drive Centric’s aggressive sales growth and oversee global expansion.
“I’m proud to be part of this fantastic success story,” says Canonge. “Today, Centric is recognized as the world’s number one PLM for fashion, sporting goods and retail. We offer the best PLM solution on the market thanks to our disruptive technology, a unique agile implementation methodology and constant innovation. Year after year, we’ve built an extraordinary team of fashion and outdoor PLM experts. But my greatest satisfaction is to see how much users love Centric PLM.”
As he explains, “Centric’s future is very exciting. In addition to our global expansion, there is a booming market appetite for PLM and digital apps. Several large companies are now contacting us to replace their traditional PLM solutions. Small and mid-size companies are still under-equipped and find our cloud-based SMB offer compelling. In addition, other verticals in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) market are asking us to help them to innovate, go faster and go cheaper. Centric’s growth will continue to be explosive!”
“Fabrice has played a key role in achieving our aggressive growth goals. He has also proactively and successfully driven our global expansion strategy laying the foundations for future growth,” declares Chris Groves, President and CEO of the company.
Canonge joined Centric Software in 2004 as European Sales and Marketing Director and he successfully opened and managed sales offices in France, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Netherlands and Germany. He was promoted to serve as General Manager and then Vice President of Sales in Europe, and was promoted to the Vice President Global Sales position in 2014.
