The growth is fueled by the popular GL Wand product, which allows finance professionals to pull real-time Oracle and SAP general ledger data simply and securely into Excel.

“With a solid client base in over 13 Asia-Pacific countries, we’re experiencing ongoing growth as more  Oracle and SAP business users recognize GL Wand as an easy way to independently create their own financial reports from enterprise system data,” said Michele Buson, President of Excel4apps. “We are excited to bring Wilhelm on board to further accelerate our regional presence through the development of partnerships and new customers.”

Wilhelm brings more than 15 years of experience in the technology industry, with a concentration on business development, project management and consulting in the software industry.
