Steve King, CRO of Hexagon PPM, joins us to discuss how he redefines the commercial strategy for a legacy company to thrive in today's market.

Legacy companies have been able to withstand nearly every possible economic condition over several decades, and yet even they have had to persevere through new challenges seen this year.


However, companies like Hexagon PPM have not been around for over 50 years by merely surviving difficult circumstances. Through the adversity, they have made their mark by quickly pivoting to market demands in any disruptive climate.
