Chou Brings CIO and IT Leadership Experience to Rimini Street
Prior to joining Rimini Street, Chou served as the CIO for China National Chemical Corporation (ChemChina), where he led management transformation and IT initiatives. During his time at ChemChina, he was recognized and named as one of the Chinese Chief Information Officer Union's “Top 100 CIOs of 2014.” Before this, Chou spent over 20 years as a consultant with Accenture, culminating his tenure there as the lead partner for the firm's Greater China Energy/Natural Resources & Chemical practice.
“Dissatisfaction with the software vendor’s maintenance and support is a common occurrence among CIOs and IT users in Greater China,” said Chou. “The independent software maintenance and support offered by Rimini Street creates new ’rules of the game’ by bringing a more compelling and value-driven choice to CIOs in this region. We have had enthusiastic response to our market entry here, and look forward to continuing to deliver our award-winning services and support to Oracle and SAP licensees across the Greater China region.”
Expansion in Greater China to Build on Continuing APAC Growth
The Company’s expansion into Greater China addresses one of the largest ERP markets in the world. Rimini Street currently supports 67 global companies with operations in Greater China, including ChemChina, Sympatex Holding GmbH, NCH Corporation, Tempel Steel Company and Southco, Inc. The Company is building on robust growth across the entire APAC region, with a 142% percent increase in signed clients as of June 30, 2015, compared to a year ago. Rimini Street (HK) Ltd. commenced operations in Hong Kong in July 2015, and Rimini Street will operate its Greater China headquarters from Beijing as Rimini Street Software Technical Services (Beijing) Ltd.
“We entered the Greater China market based on growing demand and opportunity in the region, and are now expanding our local infrastructure, operation and capabilities,” said Seth Ravin, Rimini Street CEO. “As a CIO who personally embraced the value and benefits of independent maintenance by selecting Rimini Street support for his prior employer, and has deep IT industry and regional experience, we believe Mr. Chou is uniquely qualified to lead Rimini Street’s expansion and investment in Greater China. We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Chou to our global executive leadership team.”
