“I am really excited to be part of the Trace One team. As an early adopter of SaaS, Trace One recognised the value that technology could bring to enabling collaboration between retailers, manufacturers, and their suppliers in turn. Its platform is unrivalled in this regard and allows it to bring to market pioneering portals and online communities,”
Previously, Nick spent over 20 years working for IBM in a variety of executive roles. He spent over 3 years as Director of IBM’s retail division, responsible for the P&L and go-to market strategy of IBM’s Retail Store Solutions brand. He left IBM to pursue senior roles at VC backed start-ups, including Verisae and, most recently, cloud-based energy management specialist Hara Software, where he was Managing Director of EMEA.
“Nick has great experience in growing sales, marketing and service operations in Europe and I am delighted that he is joining the Trace One team,” commented Jérôme Malavoy, founder and CEO of Trace One. “Trace One’s solution can help retailers and manufacturers work together more efficiently, as well as innovate on product development, in a way that was previously not possible. With Nick on board I feel we are ready to really capitalise on this differentiator and ensure that we expand even further into the Northern Europe region.”
