Manufacturing software provider appoints new CPO

Unleashed Software, software as a service provider with products targeted at manufacturers, has announced that Julian Wheeler is the new chief product officer.

Unleashed works to enable manufacturers and other businesses to have greater knowledge of their processes, supplies, and sales. The platform integrates with accounting, business, and eCommerce platforms such as Xero, QuickBooks, Shopify, and Amazon.

Wheeler, who previously was chief product and technology officer at Sky TV, New Zealand, and will lead Unleashed’s product roadmap, and oversee the delivery teams at the New Zealand-based business. For those customers already working with Unleashed, Wheeler will task the engineering team at Unleashed to continue to meet the needs of clients.

“Unleashed has an incredible suite of products, with an inspiring purpose to help great product businesses grow their business. The opportunity for Unleashed on a global basis is enormous and I am proud to be part of the team, helping the company to grow and achieve great success,” said Wheeler.

The appointment was positively welcomed by Unleashed CEO, Gareth Berry, who noted that the company is looking forward to 2020 with Wheeler onboard.

“Unleashed has gone from strength to strength this year and the appointment of Julian Wheeler is indicative of that. We’re excited to see how Julian’s expertise can contribute to our growth across our global markets in 2020 and beyond,” said Berry.

On Friday, November 11, Unleashed was also recognised at the Westpac Auckland Business Awards 2019 – North & West. The company won the Excellence in Marketing, Employer of the Year, and Supreme Business Excellence awards. Berry thanked the company’s key stakeholders for the win.

“We wouldn’t be able to do the great work we do without having great customers, partners and a dedicated team all executing brilliantly on a global scale. This award is really about recognising all of their hard work and thanking our customers who have supported us along the way,” he said.
