LLamasoft continues hiring spree in downtown Ann Arbor

This is how much LLamasoft has grown in recent years: It just sent out a press release announcing a new hire that "will lead business development efforts for the LLamasoft team worldwide."

Lots of companies like to talk about going international or becoming global firms. A sizable number of those are PR smokescreens. LLamasoft isn’t exhaling any of those vapors. The downtown Ann Arbor-based firm is now running logistical operations on six out of the world's seven continents.

"We are a very global company," says Ginger Stegmier, vice president of global marketing at LLamasoft. "Our first customer was in Europe. We have offices on every continent, except Antarctica."

And the 13-year-old company has the statistics to back up that reach. It is a $40 million firm with 264 employees world wide, including more than 146 in Ann Arbor. It has hired 60 people over the last year and is currently looking to hire another 20.

"We are hiring people every week," Stegmier says. "I had two people accept offers this week."

One of those hires is Bob McFarland, the new senior vice president of global sales at LLamasoft. Before coming to LLamasoft, he worked as the senior vice president of retail sales at Epicor and has built a career working in management at retail, technology, and logistics.

"At this point we need someone who will have an overarching view of all of our activity," Stegmier says.
