Enterprise Software Veteran Leads EMEA Operations

Rimini Street’s new general manager, Marc Chesover, will lead the Company’s sales and service delivery operations across EMEA, and the next phase of growth in the region. Chesover has over twenty years of experience leading sales and operations in the technology industry, and brings a proven track record conducting operational and strategic leadership, driving revenue, and leading customer engagement. Prior to joining Rimini Street, Chesover held leadership positions at SAP, HCL Technologies, and PROS Holdings, Inc. During his tenure at SAP, Chesover was the global vice president of Mobility Sales & Solutions and a member of the Platform & Solutions Group global leadership team. Additionally, Chesover held management positions at Indus (acquired by ABB) and MRO Software (acquired by IBM). Preceding his career in the software industry, Chesover spent seven years working in field operations within a UK government agency.

“The opportunity for Rimini Street’s premium level service we believe is high across the region, as increasingly CIOs are challenged with ‘doing more with less’ while at the same time being asked to support their organizations growth through new digital initiatives,” said Marc Chesover, general manager, Rimini Street EMEA. “I have personally observed Rimini Street disrupt the status quo in the enterprise software industry while expanding their global footprint. I look forward to helping new and existing Rimini Street EMEA clients optimize their current systems, expand their capabilities and obtain significant benefit from our award-winning client support.”

Launch of Operations in France

Rimini Street launched its new French subsidiary, Rimini Street SAS, hired staff and opened its new office in Paris to meet the growing demand for its premium, high-quality support and services in France. Rimini Street already supports over 90 organizations with operations in France, including local brands Bodet, CGG, Eutelsat, Laboratoires Servier, Schiever and Vinci Energies.

According to a recent Gartner report, “Per surveyed CIOs, France’s average IT budget growth rate is on par with EMEA’s at 1.4 percent, but less than the global average of 2.2 percent.”1 Furthermore, Gartner noted, “Based on the survey results, French CIOs are directing proportionately less of their new/discretionary spending to ERP. If we use a natural ecosystem analogy, survival of the fittest here (that is, the most adaptable) is about focusing energy toward new competitive capabilities by constantly making existing capabilities more efficient.”2

In line with Gartner’s recommendations, Rimini Street enables organizations to not only run their current ERP releases for a minimum of 15 additional years, but also save up to 90 percent on their total annual maintenance costs. CIOs are challenged with demonstrating how the IT department can bring value to the business overall and help progress the organizations’ digital transformation initiatives. Rimini Street works with CIOs to help them obtain the wider breadth of support services they need, take control of their software roadmap and investment and strategically optimize cost across their enterprise software portfolio.

“With Rimini Street support we get the whole package – ultra-responsive service at a reasonable price, the ability to upgrade if and when it makes sense for us, and a named experienced engineer who is available 24x7,” said Julien Viala, director of IT infrastructure, Vinci Energies. “The difference between what our support used to look like and what we now have is night and day.”

“We continue to see increasing demand for Rimini Street’s unique, premium-level enterprise software support services across the EMEA region, including France,” said Seth A. Ravin, Rimini Street CEO. “We are pleased to have an experienced enterprise software industry leader like Marc join the team and lead our next phase of growth across EMEA. Additionally, our new French subsidiary, staff and Paris office will better position us logistically to sell to and service clients with operations in France.”
