Iptor leadership promotions set direction for continued growth
Company grew overall revenue by 57% in 2022, as customers continue to invest in best-in-class vertical ERP solutions across existing and new vertical markets
Iptor, the leading provider of cloud-based ERP software solutions for the distribution, timber, publishing and pharma industries, today announces a series of leadership promotions, establishing the executive team that will drive continued growth.
Having successfully transformed Iptor, alongside CEO Jayne Archbold, by developing it into a cloud business through the launch of Iptor.com and acquiring TimberTec and PLX, whilst also driving 79% EBITDA growth since 2016, Christopher Catterfeld, Iptor Chief Marketing and Product Officer is promoted to Group Chief Marketing Officer of GSG GENII Software Group, Iptor’s parent company. GENII is the home for market-leading, niche enterprise software businesses, whose solutions manage the most critical business processes of mid-sized companies across five vertical markets – Distribution, Manufacturing, Retail, Public Services and Laboratories, with Iptor being its main Distribution ERP solution. Catterfeld, who will also retain his current role, will focus his energy on developing the GENII brand, building marketing synergies across the Group as well as identifying growth acceleration and new acquisitions.
Further leadership changes are as follows:
- Jessica Hayes, who joined Iptor in January 2021 as EVP Products & Strategy, is appointed as President EMEA. Jessica will take on all day-today responsibilities for leading Iptor in this region.
- Kristian Niklasson, who previously led Iptor’s Nordic countries, is appointed Managing Director of TimberTec, focusing on the expansion of this business in new geographies, especially the Nordics. Niklasson will form part of the TimberTec management team together with founders Andreas Boll and Frank Ridder.
- Bart Monstrey, who previously led Iptor’s European business will now focus on taking PLX into new countries as its growth accelerates, initially in Benelux and France.
- In the US region, Mark Tredgold is taking over the regional President role from Jim Smith, who will remain part of the leadership team to support the transition.
Jayne Archbold, Iptor CEO and Interim Head of People across GENII Group, comments, “I am delighted that that we have been able to make these promotions, which demonstrate the depth of talent we have. These leaders, combined with the investments we have made, have had a dramatic impact on our business performance, delivering continued growth for Iptor and excellent value for our customers. Jessica is the ideal person to lead Iptor and the wider GENII Distribution business as it grows and scales, whilst Kristian and Bart have the market expertise that is required to expand TimberTec and PLX’s geographic reach. Having worked alongside Christopher for many years I know he is the best person to lead marketing for the Group as we replicate Iptor’s growth strategy across the wider business.”
