What attracted me to Vistaar is their understanding of the interdependence between business process and technology and their demonstrated ability to offer practical solutions that deliver measurable results to clients.
Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) August 8, 2008
Vistaar Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pricing solutions for sales, marketing and product management groups, today announced the addition of two pricing veterans to key leadership roles. Bill Huyler, Vice-President Pricing Science, will drive Vistaar's pricing science strategy with responsibility for the statistical and optimization capabilities of the company's products and services. Ed Marx, Vice-President Client Solutions, will focus on enabling customers to achieve improved price and margin realization through rapid adoption of pricing best practices.
"2008 has been a phenomenal year for Vistaar, as our client base continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. Some of the largest companies in the world have selected Vistaar's technology to drive their pricing initiatives," said Sandy Tungare, CEO of Vistaar. "We are very pleased to have Bill and Ed join our team. The addition of world-class talent and pricing expertise further demonstrates our on-going commitment to deliver superior service and unrivaled value to our customers."
Mr. Huyler brings over thirty years of experience in the pricing industry. His background includes roles as a pricing thought leader in the automotive and transportation industries, as well as an entrepreneur delivering both strategic consulting services and software solutions. He also served as a re-entry vehicle dynamics engineer on the Apollo and Minuteman IV programs for Northrop Aircraft and AVCO Missile Systems, respectively. He has noted that some of same mathematics used to model flight dynamics is used today to optimize prices.
Mr. Huyler is a long-time figure in the pricing community with many distinguished accomplishments, including a US patent in pricing methodology. He has also been a board member of the Professional Pricing Society.
"I view Vistaar's technology as best-in-class," said Huyler. "What differentiates the Vistaar solution from its peers is its unique combination of analytical horsepower, flexibility to model complex pricing environments and the ability to represent all of this through an interface that is very natural and intuitive for business users to work with."
Mr. Marx comes to Vistaar from Corporate Express, where he held the position of Vice President of Pricing, Margin and Bids. In this role he was responsible for establishing margin and pricing processes, as well as implementing pricing technology solutions. He also served in pricing and finance roles at W.W. Grainger, Inc., holds a BS in Accountancy and is a CPA.
"Technology can add incredible value to the pricing process, but only if it works in harmony with underlying business processes and is adopted consistently across the organization," said Marx. "What attracted me to Vistaar is their understanding of the interdependence between business process and technology and their demonstrated ability to offer practical solutions that deliver measurable results to clients."
