“This was an easy decision for me. In my view, Softengi is to the software engineering world what Tesla is to the automotive world – a fresh breath of innovation and creative thinking. Softengi represents the implementation capability of some of the most exciting technologies of our time – XR, AI, IoT hardware engineering, and more.”
As Softengi scales its global growth, it has successfully recruited industry executive Robert Gelinas to lead the development of its North American marketplace and beyond.
Kiev, UA – 02/08/2021 – Softengi, one of the global leaders in digital transformation, welcomes a software engineering industry veteran, Robert Gelinas, to its executive leadership team.
Mr. Gelinas is no stranger to the virtues and advantages of Ukrainian-based software development. He previously served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing and one of the founding executives and first Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for top IT service providers of Ukraine. And he was also a co-founder and CEO of AppXoft, a software development firm headquartered in Austin, TX, USA, with its primary development centers located in Kharkiv, UA.
Mr. Gelinas is a veteran of the United States Air Force, where he amassed an extensive technology background in software development, data networking, telecommunications, and cybersecurity before transitioning into the commercial business world. He has been involved in the startup technology arena for over twenty years, helping a variety of aspiring entrepreneurial technology-based companies develop and execute their go to market strategies. One can literally say he “wrote the book” on successful enterprise B2B sales (author of “BLT Sales: Bigger (deals) in Less Time”).
He went on to add, “These days, when so much software technology is becoming commoditized and generic, I see Softengi as a company who uniquely understands how important the User/Customer Experience is. Their truly inspired designs provide more than just features and functions, but exciting new ways for users to personally experience and be an active part of how businesses succeed and achieve their missions. It’s very exciting to be a part of that.”
Ilya Gandzeychuk, Chief Technical Officer (CTO) of Softengi said, “I have known Bob for over ten years, and have worked closely with him in the past. I am confident he will provide the leadership and hands-on expertise needed to take our sales and marketing capabilities to new heights. We are very happy to welcome him aboard.”
“The creation of our new Chief Revenue Officer role marks a new phase of Softengi’s organizational development,” explained Softengi CEO, Gennadiy Axion. “We currently have numerous clients in the United States; however, we recognize the need at this point in time for us to focus in a much greater way on the North American market as part of our longer term global business strategy. We are glad that Bob Gelinas has joined our executive team to lead our efforts in that regard, as well has help us improve our business results worldwide.”
