The fast-fashion revolution is changing the face of the global apparel industry, which is struggling to meet the demands of an increasingly fickle clothing consumer.

The appointment of Steve G. Vogel to Chief Executive Officer and Robert Lewis to Chairman of the Board of Simparel positions the enterprise software provider to leverage new strategic opportunities and to drive innovation and value in partnership with its fashion and softgoods clients.
