Finance executive Sven Wehrwein is the newest member of the Quantum Retail Technology board of directors.
The Minneapolis-based retail technology company said Wehrwein’s addition to the board brings growth expertise and knowledge of corporate finance.
"Sven has deep board level experience and has helped a number of companies to scale during periods of aggressive growth," said Steve Buege, chairman and CEO of Quantum Retail. "That combined with his wealth of experience in both corporate finance and long-term strategy made him a good fit for Quantum as we embark on our next phase of success."
Wehrwein currently sits on the boards of several Twin Cities-based companies including Proto Labs, SPS Commerce, Uroplasty, and Celleration. In addition, he has served as a director for a number of other emerging-growth companies such as Compellent Technologies, Image Sensing Systems, Synovis Life Technologies, Vital Images and Zamba Corp.
"Quantum offers game-changing solutions to tier-one retailers and is poised to broaden the reach of its technology to an even larger portion of the retail space,” Wehrwein said. “I believe Quantum has high potential for significant future growth and I'm excited to play a part in guiding that growth."
In addition to extensive board work, Wehrwein has a broad financial background including audit work as a CPA for Coopers & Lybrand, and a 14-year career in investment banking for Dean Witter Reynolds, Drexel Burnham Lambert, and Wessels, Arnold & Henderson.
