The aim is to further accelerate StrongPoint’s position in providing grocery e-commerce solutions in Spain and to pursue global opportunities in the cash management sector.
In light of the growing demand for grocery retail technology solutions, StrongPoint has appointed Lorena Gomez Latorre as the Managing Director and Senior Vice President for StrongPoint Spain. Gomez has extensive experience in managing and scaling sales in the retail sector and is currently the sales director for the retail technology division at HMY Group.
“Coming with a broad and deep knowledge and experience of retail technology sales across Europe, Gomez will play an instrumental role in scaling our operations locally and regionally.
