The new team is building on Softeon’s innovative technology and customer-centric culture to create new ways for supply chain leaders to manage constant change within the warehousing industry.
“Change management and growth acceleration are on the minds of our customers, as these opportunities also consume the minds of Softeon’s leadership team,” said Hoefflin. “Bringing on this highly tenured team of supply chain leaders – many with deep WMS experience – will help Softeon create an ecosystem of people, service, and products to meet our goal of providing limitless solutions for our customers’ ever-changing warehousing challenges.”
