 Steve Greenberg is the Managing Director of Pointcarre USA, a textile software company that develops products specifically for the textile, apparel and home furnishing industries. A alumni of Parsons School of Design with Degrees in Advertising & Communication Design and Computer Graphics, Steve began his career developing graphics and eventually specifications and styling for a number of small children’s wear companies. This led to a designer position at Federated/Allied Department Stores for private label Boys Activewear line for Abraham & Strauss, Burdines and Bloomingdale’s among others.  

 

While at Federated, Steve was placed in the position of developing the CAD operations for the fashion department. A number of Apple Macintosh’s were bought and it was there that Monarch Design Systems textile software was brought in. After training many of the designers at Federated and building design workflows, Steve left Federated for a position as a CAD trainer and became involved in software specification at Monarch.

 

Steve quickly climbed the corporate ladder at Monarch and was soon Training & Support Manager. His industry experience greatly improved the textile design products of the company. Steve soon met with Pointcarre France. Pointcarre was developing and selling their own design software worldwide and was looking for a partner in the United States. It was a perfect match. Steve traveled to France to learn Pointcarre’s product line as well as prepare and improve it for the US market. It was instantly successful. After years of doing business jointly, Monarch was bought by Pointcarre France.

 

It was at this time that Steve was asked to be the Managing Director of the US division. He continues there, with the help of an amazing team of textiles and fabric veterans to drive the market for print’s, woven’s, knit’s and embroidery software. Today Pointcarre USA is one of the largest textile software companies in the United States and boasts a huge list of clients from Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, Nike and Ralph Lauren Polo to Town & Country Living and Kmart.
