DUBAI, March 8, 2017
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today appointed Monzer Tohme as regional vice president, sales, Middle East and Africa (MEA).
Taking leadership of a business that has seen strong growth over the last year, Tohme will focus on building the sales team, growing the channel community and expanding the company’s footprint in the region.
Commenting on the appointment, Sabby Gill, executive vice president, for Epicor International, said: “As a high growth market, the Middle East and Africa region is strategic for us. In the last year alone, we rolled out our cloud-first strategy for the region and launched a brand new, innovative partner program—two initiatives that have allowed us to provide our regional customers with the best-in-class enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions that serve as a platform to support and accelerate their business growth.”
Gill continued: “As we look to build on our success in the region, having the right individual to lead the organisation is critical to our international growth strategy. An industry veteran with over 25 years of sales experience in the ERP market, Monzer has the market knowledge, contacts, and most importantly, the leadership skills that will allow us to build a strong Epicor team and partner community in the region.”
With an initial focus on the UAE, Saudi Arabia and South Africa, Tohme will look to grow the Epicor business within its existing customer base through upgrades to the latest software versions. At the same time, he will drive customer acquisition, specifically in the hospitality and manufacturing service sectors. - TradeArabia News Service
