Mindteck Ropes in former IBM Executive as new CEO

Mindteck has appointed Wayne Berkowitz as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director.  He replaces Pankaj Agarwal who resigned for personal reasons.

Berkowitz brings to Mindteck over 25 years of expertise in the IT sector, most notably with hands-on development of high performance sales teams, global operations management, and with consistent profit growth success.  Board member Indresh Narain remarked, “Berkowitz joins us at an important time in Mindteck's ten-plus year history.  Despite several challenging periods the world over, the company has posted good results, sustained an enviable client roster and continued improving upon its sound,

high-quality deliverables.  We're very pleased to have Berkowitz on board, as his insight, energy and proven skills are sure to help build the brand and increase shareholder value." 

Until recently, Berkowitz was a channel marketing executive for IBM's Software Group in Somers, NY.  As Director of Worldwide Business Partner Marketing, he had business partner marketing responsibility across the 7 software brands -- Lotus, Rational, Tivoli, Websphere, Industry Solutions, Information Management, and Business Analytics.   This last position at IBM was preceded by eight others he held at IBM stretching over the course of 20 years, and only interrupted by an eight-year assignment with Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC), an enterprise software engineering company based in Needham, MA
