Tim Olshansky has been appointed chief technology officer. He was most recently head of engineering, Americas, at Aconex. Previously he founded Worksite, provider of a SaaS project cost management solution that was acquired by Aconex in July 2015. Aconex says Olshansky will focus on strategy, direction, and execution of technology at Aconex. He is based in the company’s San Francisco office, its hub for the ongoing expansion of Aconex in the North America region. He replaces the short-lived Craig Fulton, the former Telstra executive appointed as CTO in February 2017 (post), who left Aconex in July and is now with IBM in Melbourne.
Kirsten Mann has been named acting vice president, product and experience. Mann “has spent close to two decades guiding organisations on how to enhance customer experience and has helped build a world-class product team at Aconex.” Over the past seven years she has held several Aconex roles, including director of customer/user experience and online support, and most recently, general manager of global design and experience. Melbourne-based, she will be directing new product offerings and continuing to address customer needs across the Aconex platform.
