Cal German is Chief Executive Officer of DMSi Software. Since assuming ownership in 1987, Cal and business partner Jim Hassenstab have grown DMSi from a small development company into a leading ERP provider for the building materials industry.

Cal transformed DMSi by committing the company to a single purpose: serve the building materials industry. Rejecting the “one size fits most” approach, Cal based all development objectives on the unique needs of lumber and building material wholesalers, dealers, and remanufacturers. This specialization set DMSi apart from competitors and established the company’s reputation as an industry expert. Cal continues to embody the customer-first spirit of DMSi’s mission, going out of his way to engage with customers for product direction and service standards.

A Nebraska native, Cal earned an accounting degree from the University of Nebraska. He worked as a CPA with Coopers & Lybrand prior to joining DMSi in 1983.

“My biggest responsibility is providing an environment that attracts and retains great people. Folks who live our service culture and bring exceptional talent to the products and services we deliver. The best part of my job is admiring the work of the amazing team we have assembled at DMSi.”
