Collaboration tech people moves

In a sector like Software-as-a-Service where it is often the quality of the management that matters just as much as the technology they provide, it is useful to keep track of moves between, into and out of the main industry players. At Aconex, for example, the business has a new CFO, Paul Koppelman, who took over …
