Talentia Software announces the appointment of Franck Boutboul as COO to strengthen the management team, and reaffirm its leadership ambitions on the European market.
Appointment of Franck Boutboul
Franck Boutboul is the new COO of the Talentia Software Group. Franck has vast experience in the software industry and operational performance management. Having filled various commercial positions, he joined Oracle in 1993, where he served in particular as Vice-President of Industry, EMEA. He subsequently became Director of Sales for Southern Europe at Solectron, before joining HR Access in 2007 and climbing up the corporate ladder from “Director France” in 2008 to “General Manager EMEA” in 2010 and “Chairman & CEO” in 2012.
“I am very pleased to welcome Franck Boutboul at Talentia Software. He is an outstanding professional with a shrewd understanding of the market and has carried out large-scale projects for leading software providers,” said Viviane Chaine-Ribeiro, President of Talentia Software. “Franck will assist me with the group’s day-to-day management and contribute his vast expertise to help us to expand and to open new avenues of growth while supporting the development of all our European subsidiaries.”
“I am thrilled to join Talentia Software and to contribute to the adventure of a fast-growing and highly ambitious group. My duties involve the operational management of Talentia Software, the creation of value, organic growth and the development of an indirect sales network,” said Franck Boutboul, COO of Talentia Software.
Ambitions to match strong potential
Talentia Software aims to become an essential international player in finance and HR software by preserving its fast and steady growth while protecting its basic principles: a product offer reflecting the best market standards, targeting medium-sized companies and major groups, while maintaining high profitability and steady growth in revenue.
More than ever before, Talentia Software is in perfect shape to continue its development. The group has perfected the enrichment and streamlining of its product offer, broken down into two complementary pillars (HR/HCM and Finance/CPM) while developing its SaaS offering and its abilities in terms of hosting and service management at the European level.
In particular, Franck Boutboul will be responsible for developing an indirect distribution network to win new market shares with targeted offers that are specially packaged, upgradable and in SaaS mode only.
While continuing its R&D investments, which already account for 15% of revenue, Talentia Software is actively seeking acquisition opportunities to complement its organic growth strategy and ensure fast development that would create significant value for the group.
In so doing, Talentia Software intends to strengthen its international presence, balance revenue between France and other countries (currently 75% and 25%) and acquire additional technologies or functionalities to consolidate its HR/HCM and Finance/CPM product offers.
