and the addition of these established leaders, both of whom bring strong
experience selling in this arena, we have strong momentum to now drive
sales to the next level here and abroad. We are full steam ahead to
deliver on our strategy and promise to be a global leader in retail
technology,” said Altierre Chairman and CEO Sunit Saxena.

retailers in multiple verticals across the country and delivering
innovative programs to give them a competitive edge. He is a perfect fit
to lead our U.S. sales effort at this important phase in our growth,”

technology solutions for retailers. He was most recently Director of
Sales for Europe and Large Accounts Director at Pricer in Europe, where
he led sales management for France, Belgium, Spain and Italy and managed

marketing positions at Apple, beginning with launching the Macintosh
personal computer in the French market and ultimately serving as Large

technology, Jean Michel and Olivier are well suited to deliver
Altierre’s solutions to global markets and help retailers around the
world leverage the Internet of Things and bring new levels of
efficiencies to their stores,” added Saxena.
