Simparel, the leader in next-generation ERP, PLM, and enterprise solutions for fashion and consumer goods brands, manufacturers, and retailers, has appointed Ken Fearnley to the position of chief technology officer.

Fearnley has more than 20 years of experience in managing the strategy, development and support of PLM, R&D, mobile and other software applications within the fashion technology, discrete manufacturing, and life sciences industries. Working from the company’s New York City headquarters, he will set the strategic vision and direct the development of all current and future Simparel software solutions, Simparel said in a statement.

He holds a BS in Computer Science/Communications from Charter Oak College, a MS in Information Technology from Sacred Heart University, and a MBA in IT Management from the University of Massachusetts.

Simparel’s chief executive officer Steve Vogel said, “Ken began creating web and cloud applications for industry leaders over a decade ago; long before any of us knew they would become mission critical.”

“His accomplishments in driving product innovation in mobile and web applications, combined with continuous improvement and software development best practices, are integral to the strategic roadmap of the Simparel product portfolio. Ken brings the blend of technological expertise and understanding of industry applications that will deliver massive return-on-investment and lead our industry forward,” he added.

Fearnley said, “I am excited with the opportunities that waiting at Simparel. While we are already recognized for our next-generation technology, we now look to leverage that advantage to bring an even greater value proposition to the industry through advanced PLM, ERP, and other capabilities as well as improved customer usability and visibility across the entire fashion enterprise.” (GK)
