PCMS appoints Jon Stretton as Chief Commercial Officer
We are delighted to announce the hiring of Jon Stretton as our new Chief Commercial Officer.
Jon joins PCMS at a time of unprecedented growth. We recently secured several contract wins with global retailers, and were named ‘Leader of the Pack’ in an influential Forrester Wave™ analyst report earlier this year.
PCMS specializes in retail commerce, including point-of-sale (POS) software, SaaS cloud solutions and managed services. Our VISION Commerce Suite delivers a complete environment for modern retailing by unifying the store, mobile, web and social sales channels and providing consistent cross-channel engagement. Our clients include Walgreens, Bass Pro Shops and Shoppers Drug Mart.
Jon has been tasked with growing our global business, with a particular emphasis on serving North American grocery businesses with the PCMS single-solution approach.
Jon, who has previously worked as Managing Director for Retail for Fujitsu and NCR-UK, said: “PCMS is a leader in retail and hospitality, so I am hugely excited to join the business. The mixture of a mature customer base, innovative software and services solutions, and the ‘can do’ attitude of PCMS people all make it a great place to work.
“PCMS has a fine history but I most admire the togetherness of the team as they work hard to lead the industry. Using my experience from NCR, Accenture, Fujitsu and TCS, I hope to help by bringing extra creativity to our partnership approach, while helping company processes to evolve with our rapid growth.”
PCMS CEO Tony Houldsworth said: “Jon’s appointment is a crucial step for us as we build on the momentum of an incredible three years of sales wins and technology breakthroughs.
“A business is only as good as its people. By attracting high caliber individuals such as Jon, we are equipping ourselves and our customers to win in the years ahead.”
