NEW YORK CITY — June 1, 2016 — The board of directors of Simparel Inc., a provider of next-generation information technology for the fashion and consumer goods industries, announces the appointment of company president Roberto Mangual as CEO. Mangual brings more than 17 years of executive-level apparel manufacturing and information management experience to his new role. As CEO, Mangual will expand upon his current duties and assume overall responsibility for all day-to-day operations and strategies.
“I feel both honored and excited to lead Simparel as CEO,” Mangual said. “Simparel is more than the most state of the art ERP available; it is driven by the brightest, most passionately committed team in the industry. Our combination of people, products, and exclusive partners allow us to stand alone in a crowded marketplace of legacy-laden solutions built on old technology and outdated methodologies. With today’s frantic pace of changing customer requirements, Simparel is uniquely positioned to continue setting new standards in delivering real value and ROI to our clients.”
Mangual has rapidly advanced with Simparel, serving as president, COO and vice president of Operations since joining the company in 2012. For the prior 13 years, he held the position of chief information officer and vice president of Operations for branded sleep and leisurewear company Richard Leeds International.
“We are very excited to have Roberto Mangual take on the role of CEO of Simparel”, said Chairman Renee Aguiar-Lucander. “He has consistently delivered at the highest level in his previous positions, showing real leadership, drive and customer focus. The Board is looking forward to supporting him in continuing to deliver innovative solutions to our customers and driving the growth and success of the business.”
