Epicor has announced the appointment of Vaibhav Vohra as Chief Product and Technology Officer. He takes over the role of CTO from Bill Wilson, who held the position for the last year and is now EVP of Product Development. Wilson will act as a technical advisor for all products and oversee key customer initiatives. He will also lead the retail product teams

Vohra was previously Chief Product Officer, a position he had held since he joined the company in November 2021. Vohra commented, “Through powerful technologies, including cloud computing, business intelligence, and AI we’re empowering our customers’ workforces – from the top floor to the shop floor – to reimagine how workstreams and collaboration across the essential industries get done.

“I’m excited to continue working across our product organization to build the adaptive and agile cognitive ERP platform of the future, giving our customers an insight advantage to succeed.”

Vohra also posted on LinkedIn, adding, “Today, I continue my journey at Epicor as the new Chief Product and Technology Officer! Our global organization brings the #makers, #movers and #sellers together, and we have big aspirations with our #datasupplychain vision. Epicor is home to over 1300 R&D colleagues globally, and with our industry knowledge and technology expertise, we will move mountains. Looking forward to continuing this journey and delivering delightful customer experiences.”

The appointment combines the two roles, simplifying the leadership structure and bringing the Product Development and Product Management teams under his authority. The move will enable Epicor to better coordinate efforts within the R&D function with continued innovation through AI, automation, and design.

Steve Murphy, Epicor CEO, commented, “In his time at Epicor as Chief Product Officer, Vaibhav has been instrumental in driving our product strategy and spearheading the Epicor vision for the connected Data Supply Chain. We are confident that with Vaibhav’s leadership, we will continue to deliver the innovations and intelligence our customers across the Make, Move, and Sell industries require to compete in Today’s marketplace.”

Enterprise Times: What does this mean

This seems a sensible move by Murphy, moving product and technology into a single structure. Epicor’s products are underpinned by technology. Vohra’s reference to the Supply chain is interesting. Will Epicor look to make an acquisition in this space? How will it expand its offering over the coming months? With full control over direction, Vohra will work closely with CEO Steve Murphy to realise the ambitious growth plans.
