The PLM Boot Camp kicked off with a powerful key note address by Denise Seegal.

As past CEO of some of the leading retail brands including Ralph Lauren, DKNY, Calvin Klein, Liz Claiborne, VF Corporation, Nautica and Sweetface Fashion Co’s JLO, Denise’s global perspective provided insights to executives in retail and manufacturing looking to PLM as a competitive advantage.

In the session titled “From paralysis to prosperity with PLM – A view from the Executive Suite” Denise provided insights to PLM software vendors, PLM buyers, PLM users and PLM consultants.
