Plex Systems' Customer Named to InfoWorld's CTO25 List

Inteva's Dennis Hodges Honored for Speedy Systems Launch and Cost Savings

AUBURN HILLS, MI--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) - Plex Systems, Inc., provider of the No. 1 rated manufacturing ERP software, today announced that Dennis Hodges, CIO of Inteva Products, one of Plex Systems' largest customers, has been named to InfoWorld's CTO25 2010 list. 

The InfoWorld CTO25 list is published annually by InfoWorld magazine to honor senior IT executives who have demonstrated leadership within their companies and in the IT community.

The CTO25 list has been published online and will also be included in the June print copy of InfoWorld.

"Dennis Hodges possesses an innovative spirit balanced with exceptional business acumen," said Patrick Fetterman, vice president of marketing with Plex Systems, the company that provided the new systems solution implemented by Hodges at Inteva.

"His leadership drove Inteva's smooth launch of Plex Online at 14 locations around the world within 12 months," continued Fetterman. "Hodges' business savvy has enabled Inteva to cut IT maintenance costs significantly, and he has simultaneously refocused his global IT resources to more heavily support strategic initiatives vs. managing day-to-day maintenance."

"Chief technology officers are often the unsung heroes of IT. This year's InfoWorld CTO 25 Award winners combined management savvy, technological insight, and the ability to lead a team to success despite difficult circumstances," said Galen Gruman, executive editor/news and features, InfoWorld. "This year's honorees reinvented untenable legacies, provided game-changing insight, and managed both their own teams and key organization stakeholders to make their businesses succeed through the use of technology. Our honorees did much more than implement technology well; they brought its use to a new level."
