She will be a vital part of our leadership team as we continue to accelerate growth.”

“I have followed e2open for years because of their talented management team and strategic vision to be the preeminent brand synonymous with supply chain software,” said Janavitz, chief marketing officer of e2open. “COVID-19, supplier delivery issues and global warming events have put increasing stress on global supply chains, making e2open’s platform more critical than ever. I look forward to focusing on the company’s growth and building a brand synonymous with supply chain excellence.”

Janavitz joined TE in 2013 as the vice president of brand and was named the enterprise CMO in January 2018. Prior to TE, she led brand, communications, and marketing teams at RedPrairie and Sapient. She also ran her own marketing and communications consulting firm focused on brand-building and marketing for technology companies.
