Cirrus Appoints New Managing Director
January 16, 2012
Cirrus Logistics is pleased to announce that today Simon Shore will be joining the team as Managing Director. The appointment strengthens the company’s Board of Directors and adds even more IT, logistics and supply chain knowledge to the team.
Simon is a very highly experienced individual, who comes with significant breadth of experience in Sales, Project Delivery and, in particular, Management roles in the software industry. Much of his 12 years of experience at director level, has been within the logistics and supply chain industry having previously worked for Four Soft, Solarsoft Business Systems, RedPrairie and LIS (Logistics & Internet Systems). He is therefore very excited by Cirrus’ product suite for this industry and brings a wealth of ideas and contacts which will help to grow the business.
Simon said “I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to join a very talented team of people at Cirrus and I hope to continue to build on Bob Blightman’s excellent work in leading the Cirrus team. This is a very exciting time for the company with its recent expansion by adding a US office and I very much look forward to driving the business forward.
In these difficult market conditions the importance of optimising supply chain infrastructure has never been more important. CLASS, COST2SERV and SEABERTH all offer the ability to drive cost savings and provide the agility needed to quickly model and quantify money saving initiatives.”
Cirrus Logistics specialises in software modelling and simulation, via their CLASS solution for warehouses and their SEABEARTH product for port berth management. The company already serves customers in the Far East, North America, Middle East, Europe and the UK, with further geographic expansion planned in existing and new territories.
David Stanhope, CEO of the CentriQ Group said “Simon’s experience in a mix of IT, logistics and supply chain businesses across various business sectors made him the ideal candidate for the role. I am confident that with expertise we can continue to drive the business forward internationally. Simon is very professional, a good communicator and I’m certain he will not only add significantly to our existing capabilities, but will also fit in well with our fantastic team.”
