This morning our CEO, Frederic Laziou, announced the opening of the new Tacton North American head office in Chicago, and the appointment of Rob Milks as SVP of the Americas.
Those of you who follow this blog are probably already aware that 2017 is off to a flying start here at Tacton. And following the recent product launches and partnership announcements, this week is no different.
Rob is a real CPQ industry veteran and joins Tacton from his position as VP Sales, North America at Changepoint. He has previously headed up the sales organization at CPQ vendor, Selectica and helped guide them to one of the most successful IPOs in NASDAQ history. So getting him on board is very exciting news for all of us.
Having been at the center of the CPQ industry for the past two decades, Rob was already fully aware of Tacton’s position as a leading innovator in CPQ and Design Automation for manufacturers. He’s excited about the opportunity to grow the company’s American business, and didn’t need much persuading to join the team. It’s clear to both me and my colleagues that he’s the right man to take us forward.
You’ll hear more from Rob on the Tacton blog in the near future, but for now, please join us in celebrating the exciting news and welcome Rob and his incoming Chicago team to the Tacton family!
