A lateral view of the organization
” The appointment of Peter is a key element in our path to growth,” says Audientes Founder and CTO, Hossein Jelved. “Peter will be taking a lateral view of our organization in order to identify and coordinate all the necessary interdependencies across the company, from product development to launch, customer support and training, correlating their efforts and ensuring everything that needs to get done to support the program is on track. With his extensive experience, his toolkit and his ability to deal with complexity, Peter will be a valuable addition to the Audientes team.”
Peter will also be managing resources such as our current outsourced R&D vendors as well as planned future R&D Audientes staff globally.
