MaterialsXchange (MX), the digital marketplace for lumber and construction wood products, continues to expand its leadership. 

Adding to its executive team again, John Mancine is now MX’s Chief Technology Officer. Mancine began his professional software development career in the video game industry with a focus on artificial intelligence and real-time systems.

Transitioning to enterprise scale architecture, Mancine joined Dell Software in the Dell CTO Group where he led key engineering initiatives for the global Experience Design Group (EDG). He was pivotal in transforming more than a dozen Dell teams to common architecture, affecting tremendous efficiency gains and cost savings for the organization, MX said.

In 2018, Mancine joined Peapod LLC and helped launch Peapod Digital Labs (PDL), a common omnichannel e-commerce platform for all of the brands at Ahold/Delhaize, one of the nation’s largest grocery retail groups. As Director of Frontend Development for this $900M per year e-commerce business, Mancine spearheaded dozens of engineering teams to successfully deliver customer-facing features and architectural improvements.

Of John Mancine’s joining MX’s C-suite, MaterialsXchange CIO Joe Campagna said, "We are excited to welcome John to the team. He is a hands-on visionary who believes technology is a fundamentally creative act and that bringing together a range of skills and people is a core value to solving problems.

“I’m thrilled to be joining MaterialsXchange as CTO. The MX team has created a compelling marketplace poised for terrific growth,” said Mancine. “I see many exciting opportunities to build on this through strategic technical solutions. By bringing the MX product-centric technology in-house, the company is positioned to drive innovation and transcend customer needs and market demands.“

MaterialsXchange (MX), based in Chicago,  is the digital marketplace for  buying and selling wood products, including  OSB and construction lumber.

Earlier this week, MX announced that Steve Voorhees has invested seed capital into the company and has joined its board of managers.
