Singapore-based Toh to expand strong regional presence and sales for enterprise financial reporting authority Excel4apps

SYDNEY -- September 13, 2012

Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based reporting software for use with SAP and Oracle, today announced the key personnel appointment of Karen Toh as Sales Director for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region. This region has contributed significantly to the company’s Asia-Pacific (APAC) success, with revenue growth above 100% annually for the last three years. Fueling this success is 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 the increasing investment of Oracle and SAP in the ASEAN ERP market, Excel4apps has experienced an overwhelming response to our Excel-based finance reporting solutions, which reduce the need for pricey BI systems and expensive technical resources that are regionally in short supply,” said Wilhelm Hamman, Excel4apps Sales Director, APAC. “We are excited to add Karen’s proven sales track record to our efforts in the ASEAN region, especially given its exceptional growth potential.”

Based in Singapore, Karen brings 18 years of experience in the technology industry and is a veteran of multinational companies such as Oracle, EMC, SAS Institute and IBM. Karen holds a B.S. in Computer Science and Information Systems from the National University of Singapore.

As ASEAN Sales Director, Karen will focus on growing direct sales and building a strong regional channel. In addition to the ASEAN region, Karen will contribute to gaining customers in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Greater China. Existing users of the popular GL Wand product in Singapore include DFS, DHL and Temasek Sciences.
