New Generation Computing Inc has named Mark L Burstein as director of retail sales.

Burstein has more than 10 years' experience working with design and sourcing professionals at major US retailers on the production of private-label apparel. He will oversee New Generation Computing's retail sales initiatives for e-SPS, the company's web-based supply-chain-management software.

"We've added Mark to meet the increased demand for e-SPS from retailers," said Alan Brooks, president of New Generation Computing. "As more retail companies are manufacturing all or some of the sewn products that they sell, they're facing the same supply chain management issues that apparel manufacturers have for years."

Prior to joining New Generation Computing, Burstein was president of Caribbean Apparel Associates (CAA), a Miami-based clothing manufacturer with factories in Colombia and Mexico. At CAA, he oversaw all operations, including the company's development of Missy and Junior Sportswear for large national specialty store chains and mass-market retailers.

Before this, Burstein was executive vice president of sales for Miami-based PIBA Industries, a manufacturer of intimate apparel. He also worked as a systems designer for Andersen Consulting.
