Well, judging from the calibre of the executives it is recruiting, it is certainly making sure that it has some heavy hitters with relevant domain experience. The latest appointment (announced today) sees Patricia Cuthbert join as vice president of finance, reporting to Steve Recht, appointed six months ago as Aconex’s CFO.
