Ross Systems, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions for process manufacturers, has appointed Steve Tonks as a senior sales consultant in the UK. Steve will be based at Ross' UK headquarters in Northampton and will be responsible for development of new business primarily in the food and beverage sector.
Steve joins Ross from supply chain software company Finmatica, where he was regional manager for North West Europe. Prior to that he worked at Brintons, supporting the implementation of a company-wide ERP solution, and Unisys, where he held a marketing role.
Commenting on his appointment, Steve said:
"Ross recent acquisition of IMI and subsequent acquisition by CDC software puts the company in a very strong position to dominate the mid market ERP sector particularly in the food and beverage industry where issues such as traceability and RFID are driving investment into IT systems and applications. The mid market is traditionally poorly serviced, therefore there is an excellent opportunity for companies like Ross to increase market share and dominate the playing field where others have failed."
