In his new role, Alejandro will be responsible for leading the US team and liaising directly with the company’s customers and partnerson all issues related to their implementations and usage of DigitalRoute technology.

Alejandro’s experience and expertise will provide numerous benefits to the DigitalRoute community in the Americas. As a professional in the software industry for the past 20 years, he is skilled in both solution design and strategic sales, services and operational leadership.

Said Lopresti: “I am delighted to join a highly respected, established yet still growing software company whose technology – in light of market trends including virtualisation and digitisation – is becoming more and more central to the CSP’s success. Significant opportunities lie ahead for DigitalRoute and it is exciting to be part of an organisation being adapted to specifically respond to them.”

Added Johan Bergh, chief executive officer, DigitalRoute: “Alejandro’s arrival represents a key step in the transformation of our business from a regional to globalised structure. This has taken place so customers and partners can leverage the best expertise available regardless of their location.

Alejandro’s broad skillset and depth of experience add vital components to our leadership team and I am confident that 2017 will see DigitalRoute continue to push ahead in its role as the leading independent vendor in its market.”
