Unit4, a fast growing leader in enterprise applications for service organisations, has announced that Gary Hyman has been appointed Sales Director for its UK and Ireland operations.
Gary’s professional life began in engineering with British Aerospace but a passion for technology saw him embark on a career that has seen him own and run a multi-million pound business automation solutions company as well as building and managing highly effective sales and marketing operations for a number of other successful IT organisations. His most recent role was Sales and Marketing Director for Tribal, where he was a key player in the transformation of the business and for its ongoing success as a global provider of a range of products and services that support the delivery of education learning and training services.
Gary joins Unit4 at an exciting time; his broad public and commercial sector experience combined with his extensive knowledge of the education sector particularly mean that he is equipped with all the technical and leadership skills the business needs as it seeks to build on its strong market position with the launch of people and cloud focussed enterprise solutions, its service focus and its partner community. Indeed, it is the business’s investment in, and commitment to, delivering services and solutions that are focussed on customer need that attracted Gary. “Change is a constant for every business and technology is the enabler that helps them handle internal and external change effectively and profitably while ensuring that customers have a great experience when using or buying their solutions or services. Unit4 understands these challenges and with the launch of the People Platform it is clear that the business has set the standard for digital era business applications; essentially closing the gap between workforce expectations for application simplicity and increasingly complex business realities.”
The ways in which people are selecting, deploying and using technology is also changing. “Customers are looking for ways to accelerate the adoption of new technologies such as cloud, social, mobile and analytics. Unit4 is ahead of the curve and has a clear strategy in place to help customers realise and maximise the value of these technologies to their businesses, solve problems and build long term profitability.
“We have great people, a growing partner network, a strong solution and services portfolio and a commitment to working alongside customers as we transform their businesses and profitability, while also building on our success as the vendor of choice for forward looking services and government organisations across the UK and Ireland,” said Gary.
