“Speed and agility have become crucial to success,” said Mohit Uberoi, chief executive officer, Gerber Technology, in a press release by the company. “In all the industry sectors we support, technology has become a key enabler in realising the promise of Industry 4.0. Digital integration, automation, and sustainability are all within reach. The changes in our leadership team will enable us to sharpen our focus and innovation and agility to support our customers.”
Melissa Rogers, a former vice president of subscriber platform engineering at Autodesk, has joined Gerber and taken over as the senior vice president and general manager for Gerber’s software business. Rogers brings 20 years of leadership experience to take Gerber’s integrated suite of software to the next level. During her tenure at Autodesk, a leading software company focused on the architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, media, education, and entertainment industries, Rogers held a number of management positions. She drove the turnaround of the subscriber platform engineering organisation contributing to Autodesk’s $894 million total net subscriber revenue in 2017. Prior to this position, she was senior director of cloud business platforms, where she delivered Autodesk’s next-generation cloud-based commerce platform.
To drive the increased focus on digitisation, a new role of chief strategy and digital officer was created and filled by Karsten Newbury who previously served as the senior vice president and general manager for software. In his new role, Newbury will be responsible for driving Gerber’s company-wide digital transformation. He will lead teams to address major customer-driven initiatives, including Gerber’s new subscription-based offering (SaaS), IoT enabled devices, the digital micro-factory concept and other integrated hardware and software initiatives.
Ken Litman has also joined the Gerber team as the new vice president of information technology. Litman was the senior director of IT at manrolandGoss Web Systems. Adding 25 years of IT experience and expertise, Litman will continue to drive innovation through a number of digital projects. At manrolandGoss Web Systems, Litman was responsible for several applications and infrastructure improvements. Prior to manrolandGoss, Litman held a variety of IT positions at Xcerra Corporation and Schindler Elevator, where he worked on several merger&acquisition efforts and projects for all areas of the business including human resources, marketing, and engineering as well as external customer-facing applications.
“We are fortunate to expand the skills and knowledge of our leadership team,” said Uberoi. “These leadership changes will help us build on our past successes, drive innovation and expand our integrated software and hardware portfolio.” (PC)
