TROY, Mich., Dec. 3, 2018 – Plex Systems, the leader in cloud MES and ERP for manufacturing, today named Bill Berutti its chief executive officer and a member of its board of directors. Berutti has spent the last two decades in cloud and enterprise software leading global, high-growth businesses.
“The future of manufacturing ERP and MES is in the cloud, and Plex’s position at the intersection of technology innovation and manufacturing presents an enormous opportunity for growth,” said Petri Oksanen,
Prior to joining Plex, Berutti served as the president of cloud and enterprise solutions at multi-cloud management firm BMC Software, overseeing the company’s division with revenues more than $1 billion. Prior to BMC, he spent 17 years at PTC delivering solutions to manufacturers. He was PTC’s executive vice president and general manager of service lifecycle management (SLM) where he was responsible for the company’s fastest growing business unit.
Berutti holds a bachelor’s in business administration from Miami University and is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s Finance for Senior Executives program. He is currently a board member of both product cost software company aPriori and data center hardware maintenance company Park Place Technologies. Berutti will be based in Boston.
“Plex is trusted by hundreds of modern manufacturers managing thousands of facilities around the world,” said Berutti. “I’m thrilled to join a strong team delivering a market leading product in the cloud, and look forward to helping manufacturers connect their businesses and fully take advantage of the opportunities created by Industry 4.0.”
“I am excited to see someone with Bill’s background and credentials at the helm of Plex,” said Cindy Jutras, president and founder of Mint Jutras. “It is hard for someone who has not lived in the world of manufacturing to truly understand the complexities of the industry. He will bring a blend of deep manufacturing expertise and cloud/SaaS DNA. While Plex has achieved steady, double-digit growth over the 12+ years I have been following the company, it has yet to break out with the kind of explosive growth I have always felt was possible. That window of opportunity remains open and it will be exciting to see Bill scale Plex to its full potential.”
