This article is brought to you by Retail Technology Review: Aptos names global general manager and adds CIO role to support growth.

Aptos, the unified commerce solutions provider, has appointed Jeremy Grunzweig to general manager of the Aptos global business unit.

In this expanded role, Grunzweig will oversee the Aptos business unit’s P&L globally as well as functional areas including sales, product, support and services. He will continue to report to Aptos group CEO Pete Sinisgalli. Prior to his promotion, Grunzweig served as a regional GM at Aptos after he joined the company in 2021.

Following Aptos’ spinoff as an independent company in 2015, the organisation has grown into a retail technology leader comprised of three distinct business units: Aptos, LS Retail and Revionics. With Scott Zucker serving as GM of Revionics since 2021 and Kristjan Johannsson being appointed GM of LS Retail last month, the time was right for the Aptos business unit to have a GM of its own. Each business unit GM reports to Sinisgalli.  

“Under Jeremy’s leadership, the Aptos business unit will remain laser-focused on our most pressing objectives: customer and colleague satisfaction, innovative unified commerce solutions, and capitalizing on the opportunities in front of us,” Sinisgalli said. “Jeremy has done an outstanding job of improving organizational performance. Add to that his humility, customer-first mindset and deep expertise in retail software, and we couldn’t ask for a better individual to lead this business unit forward.”  

According to Grunzweig, his past two-plus years at Aptos — plus several decades at other software companies — have shaped his approach to leadership.   

“At the end of the day, it’s about making sure that we deliver value to our customers better than we did the day before and cultivate a workplace culture that allows our employees to grow and develop,” Grunzweig said. “If we continuously focus on these areas, Aptos will meet all its business goals. I’m proud to lead the Aptos business unit into a very bright future.”   

Jason James Joins Aptos as Chief Information Officer   

In addition to expanding Grunzweig’s role at Aptos, the company also recently welcomed a new executive — Jason James — to its ranks. Serving as CIO, James brings to Aptos over two decades of experience in cloud operations, cybersecurity, IT infrastructure and digital transformation. 

Reporting to Sinisgalli, James will help Aptos navigate the ever-evolving digital landscape and translate the company’s vision into an actionable IT path. 

“Throughout his career, Jason has helped companies leverage technology to accelerate growth and improve profitability and business alignment,” Sinisgalli said. “I am confident he’ll do the same at Aptos. We’re glad to welcome him to the team.”  

Prior to joining Aptos, James was CIO at several high-growth software and data analytics organisations within the healthcare sector. Earlier in his career, James held executive-level IT roles at the software company Servigistics (now PTC), the data intelligence firm PRGX and internet service provider EarthLink. 

Because of his deep technical knowledge and passion for digital transformation, James’ hiring is another example of Aptos’ commitment to ongoing technology modernisation, risk reduction, and superior systems performance and reliability.  

“Aptos’ investments in digital transformation and next-generation capabilities represent a competitive advantage for both the company and its customers,” James said. “Aptos also understands that the role of a CIO today is just as much about simplifying complexity and aligning a company with a shared vision as it is about the technology itself. 

“I’m excited to help guide Aptos’ journey as we continue to scale our cloud operations and implement the right technologies that provide the best experience to our customers and colleagues.”
