Compiere announced today our expansion into Europe in addition to expanding Compiere's executive team. Having an office in Germany will allow us to better serve the Europe, Middle East, and African markets with a local presence to focus on sales, support and solution delivery for our channel partners and customers throughout the EMEA region. As general manager of Compiere EMEA, Yves Sandfort will lead efforts to further increase our reach and the productivity of our partner network to our 20+ authorized partners within the EMEA region. With our expansion into Europe, we will also begin holding training classes in Europe again with the first class tentatively scheduled for the June / July timeframe. We will post more details about the training class on our website in the next few weeks after we have finalized the dates and logistics for the training session.
We also announced the addition of three people joining our executive team in our U.S. corporate office:
- Kyle Rosier, director of sales for the Americas, will oversee channel activities and lead direct sales in the Americas.
- Sunny Gosain, vice president of development and customer support, has global responsibility for product development, customer support and information technology.
- Bill Freedman, director of marketing, will lead outbound marketing efforts globally.
When Compiere had only a few people employees, the number of initiatives we could focus on was very limited. This expansion gives us the ability to focus on a larger number of initiatives including more focus on product development, support, global sales programs, and marketing.
We welcome Yves, Kyle, Sunny, and Bill to the Compiere team!
