ECi Software Solutions has named former Oracle Corporation executive Kees Vogelesang as SVP Operations for its European division, effective 1 April 2009. Most recently Kees served as Head of Business Operations – COO for Oracle‘s Strategic Accounts Sales division serving Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
In his new role, he will be responsible for all operational activities for ECi Europe across its three locations in Amsterdam-Holland and Cambridge and Lincoln.
CEO ECi International Tom Kapp says: "We are very fortunate to have someone of Kees‘ calibre on board. Kees has a strong background in the IT Industry — most recently his 10-year run with Oracle — that includes leadership positions in both business and sales operations on a global scale. Among other initiatives, Kees will focus on strengthening both customer support and the ECi product set, which includes Progress-Bridge, Vision and EasyOrder.
Kapp also thanked recently departed ECi Europe CEO Ron Wotherspoon. He says: "Over the past 20-plus years, Ron and his team built Interactive Products into the leading software provider for the European office products industry. We wish Ron the very best in the next chapter of his life. He has been a good friend and has left a lasting impression on both ECi and the industry."
