By May 24, 2017 No Comments

Toronto’s Sigma Systems, a catalog-driven BSS OSS software giant, has someone new leading their technology product portfolio. Last week, the company announced Catherine Michel, their former Chief Strategy Officer, would take the position of Chief Technology Officer.

There is no shortage of responsibilities for her in this role: she will be overseeing the entire product portfolio strategy and roadmap; acting as the technological decision-maker and represent the company in speaking and outreach engagements throughout the globe to boot.

Catherine has been with Sigma Systems since 2013, and prior to that, she was a co-founder and CTO of Tribold, also a telecommunications catalog-driven software company. There, she was the principal architect of the company’s products and solutions portfolio. Tribold was acquired by Sigma Systems in 2013.

While at Tribold, she was part of forming a strategic solution partnership with Microsoft, and they were awarded Industry Solutions Partner of the year.

Catherine started her career as a senior executive in Accenture’s Communications and High Tech practice, where she was responsible for business strategy of B/OSS solutions. She holds a B.A. in finance from The University of Michigan

She’s been named as one of the top most powerful people in the telecoms industry by Global Telecoms Business.

We love to see more women joining the CTO squad, and we just want to congratulate Catherine on her career move.
