Epicor gets new regional vice president
Paul Hammond will lead business operations at the ERP software vendor in the Middle East
Epicor Software Corporation, a business apps vendor, has announced the appointment of Paul Hammond as regional vice president for the Middle East, Africa, India and Turkey.
Hammond, who is based at the company's regional headquarters in Dubai, will lead business operations and expansion plans across the Middle East and adjacent regions.
In his new role, Hammond will report to Keith Deane, senior vice president and general manager for Epicor in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
"Epicor remains strongly focused on expanding operations and further enhancing efficiencies across all levels of its business," said Deane. "By bringing onboard a highly capable and widely experienced industry veteran like Paul, who has a proven track record in the region's software industry, we aim to increase our market share while continuing to deliver innovative and inspiring business software solutions that match the specific needs of our clients. Moreover, we are confident that his personality and leadership style is perfectly suited to the culture of teamwork, excellence and passion that we nurture at Epicor."
"Epicor is at the forefront of business software solutions around the world," added Hammond. "The company's success lies in its ability to cater to the specific needs of clients across different sectors and regions, a clear testament to its deep understanding of the role of IT in cultivating business growth. This is clearly reflected in the company's continuing growth and success in this region where Epicor has a deeply rooted and fast-expanding client base. I look forward to being part of a winning team and continue to help drive regional successes."
Hammond said: "The opportunity in the region's midmarket manufacturing and distribution and trading sector is a perfect setting for Epicor. This is a fast growing sector that needs simple to use, intuitive business applications but doesn't have the budgets or the time required to implement bloated tier-one solutions. This is our sweet spot where we will drive our focus."
Prior to joining Epicor, Hammond was head of the volume business for the entire Middle East and North Africa (MENA) for SAP Middle East. He has also held key positions at Infor, Software AG and Symantec across various countries in EMEA and North America.
