TOWER Software (today) announced that Chris Hughes has joined its senior management team as Operations Manager. Hughes brings with him extremely valuable experience following a 4.5-year tenure as Sales Engineering Manager at content management and portal solutions vendor, Vignette. There he managed a team of people, oversaw all pre- and post-sales activity and arranged key partnerships and strategic alliances in the electronic content management field.

“He’s a perfect fit for us,” commented Tony Sumpster, Managing Director at TOWER Software. “His background is both commercial and technical, and he boasts great success at managing large successful accounts across multi national regions,” he added. “Multi-million pound deals are second nature to him, so he’s extremely well placed to boost TOWER Software’s growth as a business. Over the next few months he’ll be working very closely with me, and focused on initiatives such as integrating internal processes, delivering hands-on support to the sales team and strengthening our partner programmes,” concluded Sumpster.
