Meet our Global Leadership Team
Chief Executive Officer
I’m a CEO, Investor, builder of world-class teams, champion of diversity and continuous learner, and I’m passionate about people. From my first leadership role in the Boy Scouts, to exec positions in the tech industry, my career has revolved around elevating, engaging and enabling people. I joined Unit4 to get the market as excited in our unique approach to enterprise tech as I am. We’re building systems that change how people experience work, and the impact will be huge.
Outside of work I’m a family man, a Liverpool supporter, and a proud South African.
Chief Financial Officer
For me, the most important asset of a company is its people, and I am passionate about nurturing and developing talent – not just in my teams but across the whole company. I enjoy building high-performing finance teams that are true business partners to the company’s senior leaders and are critical to efficiently scaling high-growth technology companies.
When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my family, travelling, enjoying good food, and I’m also a keen golfer.
Chief Sales Officer
Through my career, I’ve learned the importance of honesty, hard work and having fun. Also, the importance of being nice to people. I’ve worked with some amazing people who have coached me and been honest about my faults, one being that I work too much. Everyone gets 24 hours in a day, so use them wisely. Today my obsession is how we make our customers and their customers as successful as possible.
Cooking is my passion and I love to learn new things to prepare and serve to friends and family!
Chief People Success Officer
The experience our people have at work and how they’re supported in their career journeys is a subject I’m passionate about. We enable our people to define who they want to be by empowering them to drive their own success through the opportunities they create, giving them an extraordinary environment that inspires them.
I learn a lot from my two strong, independent daughters who make me proud every day.
Chief Marketing Officer
Most of my career has focused on people and the technology that drives people performance and development.
Our customers understand that the way people experience enterprise technology is critical, as they fight to retain the best talent. I’m a people person and a true believer in the power of diversity.
Chief Customer Officer
My background is in leading the efforts of major global businesses to better understand and deliver on their customers’ needs. Customer engagement and success are pivotal to Unit4’s continued growth and success too, as we elevate the whole enterprise software People Experience. I relish the opportunity to lead this transformation and build the organization required to support and delight Unit4 customers at every touch point.
Away from work, I am a petrolhead and keen motorsport enthusiast and also enjoy spending time with my family in the UK and South Africa.
Chief Product Officer
My passion is to use technology towards building products that help companies run their businesses better. For decades, enterprise customers have been asking for flexible light-touch systems designed for their specific needs, that allow them to move fast, be resilient, and adaptable. Throughout my career at Google, SAP SuccessFactors, Yahoo!, and QuickBooks, I’ve focused on building such applications. New-wave technologies – cloud, machine learning, micro-services, APIs – mean we have an opportunity to advance this goal in a major way.
Originally a native of St. Petersburg, Russia, I now have my home in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife, two boys and three dogs.
Chief Technology Officer
I’ve been fascinated by technology since age 14: from my first Tandy TRS Model 1, through to developing cloud-based, super-scalable solutions and bringing innovative technologies such as AI, chatbots, and predictive analytics to ERP. We really can now have better, non-invasive and pervasive solutions — to improve People Experience and help us focus on what we truly love.
My spare time is spent with family and friends. I can often be found road biking to stay in shape, and I love experiencing different cultures through traveling.
EVP/Global Head of Partner Ecosystems
People are at the heart of Unit4’s vision. Simplifying, harmonizing and globalizing partner relationships is my focus, defining a new vision of "What’s possible" and capturing value for everyone involved. I’m passionate about building teams to support accelerated growth, and learning and collaborating with people to ensure continuous improvements.
My professional life takes me away from home quite a bit, so during my downtime I enjoy spending time with my family boating the lakes of Muskoka in the summer, and in the winter months (which is a good portion of the year in Canada) we hit the slopes.
EVP Global Head of Strategy and Corporate Development
I've spent my career helping organizations achieve their goals through executing acquisitions, investments and joint ventures. I enjoy working with business leaders to drive positive outcomes in the pursuit of strategic growth. My passion lies in finding mutual synergies between organizations and executing and integrating acquisitions seamlessly, whilst keeping the needs of all people involved front and center.
I live in Cambridge (UK) with my wife, my two young daughters and two dogs. Any precious spare time is spent enjoying football (big Tottenham fan), rugby, skiing and golf.
Regional President, North America
Throughout my career, I’ve focused on building highly effective teams and I’ve worked with some inspiring people. Helping the overall team succeed, meeting customers and getting to know exactly what value we can deliver to change their world, drives the passion I have for my work. I’m excited about the growth opportunity for Unit4 in North America.
That passion to succeed extends to my life outside work. I have four sporty and competitive kids and a very understanding wife. I find a lot of joy in winning and in the pursuit of winning and I seem to have passed that trait on to them.
Regional President, UK & Ireland
Having spent 25 years in enterprise software, my greatest achievements and most satisfying roles have always involved developing, coaching and supporting people. Watching my teams enjoy their successes, knowing I have helped in some way, is the greatest feeling and motivation for heading out to work every day.
My time outside work is spent with my 3 children. I’m also an Everton Fan, so I do enjoy watching the football if my children will let me!
Regional President, Nordics
Working together and being able to clearly motivate, inspire, be honest and create commitment with our employees, customers and partners is something that I think is important in my leadership and that has always been important to me, throughout my 20+ years in both the international and Nordic organization.
Regional President, Asia Pacific
I have been extremely lucky in my career to have worked across North America, Asia, and Europe for some amazing organizations. What it has taught me is that people make the difference. We are building a people-centric business in Asia Pacific to help our customers achieve a better experience for their employees and customers. I love driving change, delivering results and building teams. And we are truly building an amazing team here.
Outside of work I am a family man; love sport and time with friends.
Regional President, Western Europe
Having fun will always be one of the most important drivers in both my professional and personal life. Building a strong performing team with a demonstrated history of achieving results is what I live for. My passion for developing and coaching people, along with my competitive nature have made sales a rewarding career.
Outside of work I recharge by spending time with my family and friends, and taking time for sports including cycling, running, soccer and skiing.
Regional President, DACH and Eastern Europe
Having previously served as DACH managing director, I returned to Unit4 in 2021 to continue our growth story, driving value to customers in the region. In my experience working with the biggest enterprise software companies in the world, I have learned the importance of community and partnership. Vendors have a commitment to serving customers through innovation, supporting their digital transformation and optimally supporting employees every day.
In my free time, I enjoy playing golf – best with my 10-year-old son Jonas. Also, I love to spend the weekends in the alps for hiking, skiing and other outdoor activities.
