About George Lewis:

As a Strategic SaaS Executive in the Product Lifecycle Management and Quality Management Systems space, I possess a wide perspective in these industries. My 20+ years of experience in PLM/QMS ranges from CAD-centric solutions with traditional deployment methods to Cloud-based SaaS and PaaS technologies. In fact, I’ve spent the past 15+ years working in the Cloud industry, long before SaaS technologies were so widely accepted as business solutions. Past experience includes providing visionary presentations and recommendations to small startup organizations, through large Fortune 500 companies. Currently I work in the areas of strategic corporate vision, corporate development, and work to provide business alignment with customers, technology partners, and private equity organizations.
