NORWOOD, Mass.– (BUSINESS WIRE) –July 20, 2006 — Reflexis Systems, the pioneer and leader in Retail Execution Management, announced today that it has opened its European headquarters in the Canary Wharf section of London. The office will be the company’s second location in the UK and will focus on expanding the Reflexis customer base while supporting existing Reflexis customers throughout Europe, such as Tesco, HomeBase and Marks & Spencer. Reflexis has seen a dramatic upswing in the adoption of its Retail Execution Management applications in the United States and anticipates similar growth in Europe as area retailers learn of the extensive cost savings and operational gains from the company’s RetailAction(TM) products.
Reflexis also announced the appointment of Peter Casey as EMEA Sales Director for Reflexis. Prior to Reflexis Mr. Casey was General Manager for European Operations for AppMail, an interactive email company based in the United States. Casey also founded Personic Recruitment Software in Europe and Asia. As Managing Director, he took the company from start-up to number one in the market in under three years. Casey has also helped start-ups in the Resource Management and HCM fields and was based for some time in California.
Prashanth Palakurthi, Chairman and CEO of Reflexis Systems, described the establishment of a European office as “essential to keeping the momentum going and bringing to Europe the same levels of sales and operational gains that our U.S. customers have been realizing for years.” Palakurthi added, “Many European retailers visited us at the recent Retail Systems trade show in Chicago, and I think they came away with a solid understanding of what this type of software can do for their stores and their operations in general.” Reflexis already serves the two largest divisions of the Delhaize Group’s U.S. subsidiary.
