Mike Ettling

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.

Gordon Stuart

Chief Financial Officer

I’ve worked across a diverse range of businesses serving global markets and truly believe that finance is critical to leading change. The CFO’s leadership responsibilities and opportunities have grown beyond managing finances, measuring performance and delivering reports. I learned early on that a holistic understanding of the business and industry is essential to driving growth and success.

I spend my discretionary time with my family and watching and playing sports – some more successfully than others.

General Counsel

My focus is corporate law and compliance. Throughout my career, I’ve advised through acquisitions and divestment, company re-structures and transformations, and seen that the way companies engage with their people is key to their long-term success. That’s why I’m a proud Ambassador of our charitable trust, Unit4 Cares Foundation, which supports and raises funds for Unit4 people facing hardship due to life-limiting or serious illness.

When not working, I like to spend time with my wife and kids in the Netherlands or France and try to keep in shape by riding my MTB through the woods.

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.

EVP/Global Head of Commercial

I’m driven to continuously look for new and improved ways to do things. In my work, I find ways to make strategy come to life across our global operations. I’ve met many business leaders, all of whom have a passion for their people. Understanding that has been the key to a successful acquisition and growth strategy. I’m half French, half Norwegian and I live in London with my wife and daughter.

When I’m not making change happen at work, I can be found changing tack on the water in a boat or kite surfing.

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 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.

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.

Chief Operating Officer

From the start of my career in IT, I recognized the vital role people play in sustainable growth and business success. It’s great to work for a company that shares my vision to put people and customer success at the heart of everything. I’m lucky to work with an experienced and motivated team covering global demand generation, sales ops and field enablement.

I’m a big classic rock fan, a passion shared by my son and his band, Raised by Hounds. I recently enrolled for helicopter lessons, so I can fly the band around when they hit the big time.

My team combines exceptional technical know-how with a clear understanding of market and customer needs. We develop and deliver solutions that work the way people work, taking a new approach to enterprise applications and how they serve people. It’s a privilege to work in partnership with customers to define and build a truly modern solution roadmap.

My passion outside of work is my family first, and music a close second. Weekends are spent reliving my youth as a member of an Indie Folk band.

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.

We are building a people-centric business in North America 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.

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!
