London, UK, 

London, UK 8th July 2019 – Unit4, a leader in people-centered ERP, today announced the expansion of its leadership team with the promotion of Lisa Dodman as Chief People Officer (CPO).

Lisa has spent 25 years in HR working globally within generalist roles, and 18 years in the software industry largely in ERP and PLM organisations where Talent Enablement has always been a key focus. Used to defining strategy and driving business transformations, Lisa has been instrumental since joining Unit4 in 2015, refocusing the business on talent enablement, leadership development, millennial hiring and engagement, and driving positive change across UKI, Continental Europe and Eastern Europe.

Previously, Lisa held senior HR roles with Infor and Siemens Industry Software, where she was responsible for managing and defining the people strategy for UKI, EMEA and USA.

“It’s an exciting time for Unit4, and one where we’re more focused on our approach to talent enablement and employee experience than ever,” said Mike Ettling, CEO of Unit4. “Lisa is fully committed to developing people so they are successful and empowered to make their own career choices. She has the drive and passion to take us in a new direction when it comes to putting people’s careers in their own hands.

“Lisa takes over from Henk van den Bogaart who served as Chief HR Officer and was instrumental in creating and implementing a people-first approach to Unit4’s HR strategy and people agenda. Henk will continue to support the company during a transitionary period before leaving to pursue opportunities outside Unit4. I’d like to thank Henk for his important contribution to the business.”

“The experience our people have at work and how they’re supported in their career journeys is a subject I’m very passionate about,” said Lisa Dodman, Chief People Officer at Unit4. “We’re focused on the way we develop and create opportunities for our people to excel, and I’m very pleased to play a central role in promoting a culture of freedom and ownership that enables an environment of career choices for our people.”
