eFront Taps Verboogen As Europe COO

Mar 28 2012 | 7:57am ET

eFront, a provider of software solutions for the alternatives space, has hired Philippe Verboogen as its new chief operating officer for Continental Europe.

The appointment comes as eFront passes the 300-client mark and opens offices in Dallas and Luxembourg.

Verboogen comes to eFront from Linedata, where he served as managing director for Continental Europe. Prior to that, he held leadership positions in sales and consulting at Hyperion, a US-based provider of corporate performance management solutions. When Hyperion was acquired in 2007, he moved to Business Objects (acquired by SAP in 2008) to lead one of the EMEA Business Units.

In his new role with eFront, Verboogen will be based in Paris, responsible for coordinating FrontInvest and FrontAnalytics sales and professional services. Béatrice Vachonfrance, former COO for Continental Europe, will assume responsibility for global business development.

Said Olivier Dellenbach, CEO and founder of eFront, in a statement: “Philippe’s international experience combined with his analytical and leadership qualities are important assets for us in this key region. I will count on him to help us exceed our ambitions for Europe in 2012 and beyond and to perpetuate our top priority of ensuring the highest levels of customer satisfaction.”
