AXIND Software Pvt. Ltd., a leading provider of software tools for the fashion, apparel and lifestyle industry, announced the formation of the company’s advisory board.

Members of the Axind Board of Advisors bring decades of retail, fashion, information technology and business experience across multiple industries and geographies.

The creation of the Board of Advisors comes among a number of initiatives AXIND has undertaken recently focused on the continuing goal of strengthening the company's position as a preferred supplier of technology for fashion.

The board will provide insight and recommendations to AXIND’s senior management team, across their respective areas of expertise, helping Axind further expand its presence in its area of operation.

“This group has the kind of experience and expertise that can help AXIND successfully navigate the evolving technology landscape of the fashion and retail industry,” said Matteo Chiampo, AXIND’s CEO. “It is an honor for me to welcome our new Advisory Board members. We felt the time was right to bring another, broader perspective to the work we are doing. The strategic guidance this team can bring is truly exceptional.”
