TROY, Mich., December 18, 2018 – DemandCaster, the leader in cloud software for agile, end-to-end supply chain planning, today announced Tom Nessen as general manager. In this role, Nessen will oversee all aspects of the business, including sales, marketing, professional services, customer support, and product development.

Nessen brings to DemandCaster extensive supply chain and cloud software expertise, a proven track record of scaling teams, and experience delivering and implementing successful software solutions. Nessen was most recently the director of solution engineering at Plex Systems, where he teamed with sales leaders to help achieve record growth for the company. DemandCaster is an independent business unit of Plex Systems.

“Tom brings deep domain experience, a hands-on understanding of what companies need to run their businesses, and a track record of successfully delivering supply chain solutions that yield impressive ROI,” said Jim Shepherd, group vice president of corporate strategy for Plex. “We couldn’t ask for a better leader to establish DemandCaster for long-term growth and success.”

Prior to joining Plex, Nessen served as a senior sales engineer at enterprise software company Infor. Nessen’s experience also includes leadership and delivery roles with Plan4Demand (now Spinnaker), Innotrac (now Radial), and Manhattan Associates. He holds a bachelor’s in industrial engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

“As channels expand, competition grows, and customers increasingly expect extraordinary experiences, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for companies to cost-effectively meet demand,” said Nessen. “Today’s product-based companies need advanced supply chain planning technology to succeed, and DemandCaster has an extraordinarily flexible offer that’s accessible to companies of all shapes and sizes. I’m looking forward to working with the DemandCaster team to help our current and future customers take their businesses to the next level.”
