Tidemark Names IBM EPM Sales Veteran Jérôme Lefebvre to Lead Expansion into Europe
Lefebvre to Drive Effort to Bring Tidemark’s Modern Business Planning and Analytics Solutions to European Enterprises
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.– April 23, 2014 – Tidemark, maker of the next generation cloud-based enterprise performance management and analytics solutions, today announced that Jérôme Lefebvre will lead Tidemark EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) operations.
A sales executive with more than 20 years of experience in the enterprise performance management and analytics space, Lefebvre will direct Tidemark’s European operations from Geneva, Switzerland, and will focus initially on the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Benelux regions. He will also collaborate with Tidemark’s growing ecosystem of global partners to serve customers in these and other major markets throughout Europe.
“I’m excited to welcome Jérôme to the Tidemark team, and work closely with him as we grow our presence in Europe and beyond,” said Phil Wilmington, President and COO of Tidemark. “Jérôme has a long track record of success delivering performance management solutions to enterprises in Europe, and his driven, entrepreneurial style makes him an excellent fit for Tidemark. When it comes to business planning and analytics, we’re out to change the world, and Jérôme will help us change a big part of it.”
Lefebvre joins Tidemark after overseeing sales for IBM’s performance management solutions in Europe. At IBM, he managed a team of more than 50 sales executives across the entire European region and consistently achieved or exceeded revenue goals.
Prior to IBM, Lefebvre served in sales leadership roles at OutlookSoft Switzerland, Microsoft Europe and Clarity Systems. Lefebvre earned a degree in political science from Paris Sorbonne University.
“Enterprise performance management solutions have evolved greatly since I first began working in this market, but when it comes to building a planning and analytics solution for the way companies operate today, no one comes close to Tidemark,” said Lefebvre. “Organizations in Europe are desperate to drive growth and seek out new profit opportunities, and they are increasingly looking to the cloud for delivering mission-critical enterprise solutions, and mobile for providing access insight at the moment of action. Only one company sits at the intersection of these trends, and it’s Tidemark.”
