Dmitri is a strategic leader, visionary, and an evangelist for ERPx. He will own the end-to-end customer experience of Unit4’s products, driving customer value, innovation and quality as the company invests further to deliver its modern, modular multi-tenant cloud ERP.
“I am excited to be joining Unit4 for three reasons – opportunity, technology and the team. This is an extraordinary opportunity to deliver something that customers have been asking for from ERP solutions for decades – a system that is designed around their specific needs, that allows companies to be fast, resilient, adaptable, and that is light-touch enough to enable employees to be productive. This solution is enabled by forward-thinking technology and taking advantage of seismic technological changes, such as micro-service architectures, APIs, machine-learning, composable user experiences. Finally, I feel Unit4 has an incredible team to pursue this vision – some I have known for a long time, some I got to know over the last few months, and I am excited to move forward with them.”
“I am delighted to welcome Dmitri to Unit4 as our new Chief Product Officer,” said Mike Ettling, CEO, at Unit4. “His wealth of knowledge and experience makes him the right person to lead the development and delivery of our products. We have an opportunity to truly re-define ERP, particularly as we witness organizations rapidly pivot towards digital transformation strategies to help adjust to changes in the market, the needs of the communities in which they do business and, of course, engage and enable their most valuable asset, their people.”
