Unit4, a fast growing leader in enterprise applications for service organizations, has announced the appointment of Christophe Vanackère as Managing Director of Unit4 France.
Vanackère succeeds Bertrand Boulet with responsibility for Unit4 business operations in France. During Boulet’s three year tenure, he was successful in merging the company’s Unit4 Business World and Unit4 Financials’ operations and laid the foundations for double-digit growth in France.
Vanackère began his career at Lectra, a world leader in CAD, CAM and PLM solutions where he became Managing Director for Europe, Middle East and South America. He later joined VCSTimesless-Cegid as Director in charge of development and global company expansion. In 2010, he joined Sage as head of development for the global Sage ERP X3 business. Vanackère spent the last three years as Managing Director focused on the European market at Sage Enterprise, working in close collaboration with the sales and marketing teams.
"I am delighted to join Unit4,” said Christophe Vanackère. “Our new generation of smart, self-driving ERP built for services organizations to be people-centric differentiates Unit4 in this highly competitive market. I look forward to making a significant contribution to the company’s success. The expertise of the teams in France combined with great technological innovation will ensure we deliver good growth in 2016 and beyond. France is and remains a top priority for Unit4 in Europe and our goals are clear: to continue to strengthen our relationships with our existing customers, expand our network of partners, and pursue business growth and innovation in the cloud.”
