Successful leadership of one of the largest and fastest growing global enterprise business software companies requires many skills - vision, passion, determination, humility, and limitless energy just to name a few. It shouldn’t be surprising that Epicor’s executives not only embody these attributes, but also a number of other qualities and characteristics that drive them both personally and professionally.
Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be chatting with the Epicor executive team not only about their vision for the New Epicor, but also to learn more about them personally and what they do when they’re not at work, on the road, or online – like what motivates them, how they decompress, or what we might find in their refrigerator on a Sunday morning.
For our first installment, I’d like to introduce you to Epicor’s President and CEO, Pervez Qureshi. Pervez brings more than 20 years of management experience in Silicon Valley’s hi-tech industry to his role as president and CEO of Epicor.
Pervez Qureshi, President and CEO
Q: Pervez, what is your vision for the new Epicor?
A: It’s very simple – to build the leading, worldwide, midmarket ERP company and to deliver solutions that grow our customers’ revenues and profitability.
Q: What is most important in your role as CEO that will help to achieve this vision?
A: To make sure we have the best people that are engaged, energetic and inspired to focus on our mission. It’s really all about our people and making sure they have the tools, training, resources and education needed to further our mission.
Q: What’s your favorite stress reliever?
A: First, philosophically, I have two strong beliefs: 1) that no person is tasked with a burden greater than they can bear and 2) that with difficulty comes ease and with ease comes difficulty. For me, these two beliefs prevent stress rather than relieve them, as they help me to remember that any obstacle in front of us is not that big and that we are capable of handling even the most seemingly difficult situations.
As far as an actual stress reliever beyond those two beliefs – that would be meditation.
