THE WOODLANDS, Texas, April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Center Software, the first name in construction automation, today announced the promotion of Cecilia Padilla to President, On Center Software.
"Cecilia has been a key part of On Center Software's success. I am honored to promote her to the position of President," said Leonard Buzz, CEO of On Center Software. Cecilia Padilla joined the company in 2008 as Vice President and was instrumental in introducing Digital Production Control™ patented labor control technology to the industry. "As we prepare for the economic bounce back in commercial construction, we are confident that Cecilia's leadership is critical in reaching our goals," said Mr. Buzz. She serves on the firm's executive Vision Team, a think tank for the future of construction automation.
Mrs. Padilla is a respected estimator and project manager in the drywall industry. Like many professionals in construction, she is a second generation professional. Mrs. Padilla's expertise spans 25 years in drywall, light- and heavy-gauge framing, lath and plaster, EIFS, fireproofing-themed facades, and acoustical ceilings. Prior to joining On Center Software in 2008, she worked for Marek Brothers Systems in Houston, Texas (where she was a power user of On Center Software solutions) and for Raymond Interior Systems in both Las Vegas, Nevada and Orange County, California.
"The success of our customers is our business. As a former customer and industry professional, I understand the requirement that the workflow of software squares nicely with the workflow of contractors. Solutions must be intuitive to the user's day-to-day processes," says Cecilia Padilla. "We believe every user should be a power user and have a support net that includes 24 hour business day support and top of the line multi-channel training."
Mrs. Padilla's passion for the industry is best observed during her numerous speaking engagements around the world. She is an internationally known expert in the construction industry. Mrs. Padilla speaks with owners, architects, general contractors, estimators and project managers in the industry to understand their challenges and issues. This first-hand knowledge of construction is the foundation for On Center Software's customer focused business model.
During the upcoming 2012 AWCI Conference, held in Charlotte, North Carolina April 16-19, Mrs. Padilla will speak during the Professional Development track. Her session entitled 'Leveraging the Technology You Already Own' is being held April 18 from 7:45-9:15 a.m. On Center Software will also be participating at the INTEX Expo on April 18 and 19 in booth 311.
