We have been exclusively engaged on a priority search for a client of ours in the Retail / Apparel industry who is looking to bring on a Technology Leader to oversee, guide and evolve their Enterprise Applications ecosystem. This iconic fashion brand is the best performing brand under an umbrella of other successful companies and the parent company is investing heavily in reinforcing and modernizing their retail systems and enterprise applications.
This Sr. Manager of Enterprise Applications has overall responsibility for the evaluation, design, and support of the enterprise systems used in the retail lifecycle. This includes, but not limited to: Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), ERP system, Merchandising system, Order Management/Warehouse Management, and Point of Sale system. There will be 3-4 direct reports to this position all of whom are responsible for directly supporting one or more of those systems. Additionally, this position will work closely with the Digital Marketing/eCommerce team, the Business Intelligence/Data team and the Enterprise Infrastructure team to ensure application compatibility and interoperability across the enterprise.
With the pandemic forcing a shift away from brick and mortar and more towards ecommerce, an unprecedented strain has been put on all of these enterprise systems to continue to provide the same customer and brand experience that their retail stores are known for. Therefore, it has exposed several opportunities to enhance, modify or even replace some of the enterprise applications. This position will be responsible for leading that effort.
