HighJump Software, provider of supply chain management software, has named Jonathan Kwok director of Asia-Pacific (APAC) sales. Based in Shanghai, he is responsible for channel management and will lead the expansion of the HighJump Supply Chain Advantage suite in the region.
Kwok has nearly 20 years of experience in logistics software, from development and system design to professional services and channel management with some of the largest supply chain solution companies in the world. He was drawn to HighJump Software because of its adaptable solutions' early success in China and Southeast Asia.
"APAC is one of the fastest growing markets in the world, and companies here are under huge pressure to react quickly to market and consumer demands," said Kwok. "HighJump Software has a flexible, agile and adaptable warehouse management system that companies here need and this distinguishes them in the market. I am thrilled to be part of an organization that is so committed to the Asia-Pacific region and lead its expansion."
"Jonathan brings the depth of experience and expertise that I am looking for to lead APAC. He has run a business in China, which is so important to the success of this huge market. And he is based out of Shanghai, which is a strategic location for building networks in Greater China, India and Southeast Asia," said David Houser, vice president of international sales, HighJump Software. "Jonathan is a key addition to our team and we are delighted to have him on board."
HighJump Software also has a research and development centre in Shanghai that supports the entire supply chain product suite.
