Justwin Technologies Inc has named Dwight P Ryan as its new president.

Ryan joined Justwin, which provides collaborative product commerce (CPC) solutions for the apparel, footwear and textile industries, in August 2000 as chief financial officer.

Based in the company's world headquarters in New York, he now assumes responsibility for Justwin's global operations including the company's seven locations, which are staffed by its software solutions and professional services teams.

"I welcome the opportunity to lead Justwin into the next phase of its exciting growth plan," said Ryan. "Over the past few years, our markets have come to recognise that effective collaboration is the key to accelerating time to market and improving visibility throughout their supply chains.

"We're pleased that our clients have embraced our efforts to extend the capabilities of traditional product data management tools by leveraging Internet-based technologies to enhance communications between teams and to track critical events in their processes.

"By maintaining our focus on creating value for this growing international client base, we expect to accelerate our growth over the coming years."
