NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NGDATA™, the customer experience management solutions company, today announced the appointment of Didier Van der Coelden as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Van der Coelden will oversee NGDATA’s financial strategy and operations as the company continues to accelerate its growth.
Van der Coelden brings more than twenty years of experience as a financial executive and consultant for mid-sized and large, global companies to his role at NGDATA. In his previous position, he served as founder of CONFI-dence, an advisory service that helped guide companies on financial strategy and execution, allowing clients to scale up, expand and increase shareholder value. Prior to that, Van der Coelden served as CFO of Capco, a global business and technology consultancy, where he helped the firm grow from a privately-owned start-up in Belgium to a publicly-listed $500 million business with over 3,300 employees and global offices from San Francisco to Hong Kong.
“I’ve made a career out of helping companies both large and small grow to a global scale,” said Didier Van der Coelden. “I’ve developed a keen sense for the assets companies possess that can accelerate their growth, and I look forward to working with an excellent management team to leverage those assets here at NGDATA.”
Van der Coelden joins NGDATA during a time of explosive growth. The company raised $10.2 million in funding late in 2015 to help broaden the adoption of the award-winning Lily Enterprise, its data-driven customer experience management solution, and has seen a significant increase in new customers across the globe. Earlier this year, NGDATA opened an office in Singapore to meet the continued global demand for its solutions. And, there are outstanding plans for further expansion.
“We’ve experienced tremendous growth in recent years, and bringing in someone of Didier’s caliber as head of finance will help NGDATA capitalize on the exciting opportunity in front of us,” said Luc Burgelman, CEO of NGDATA. “His expertise in growing and operating global technology companies will be instrumental as we continue to expand in response to increasing demand for NGDATA’s solutions. Didier’s proven track record of success, his strategic vision and his collaborative leadership style will be welcome additions to our team.”
