WALTHAM, MA and RALEIGH, NC (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
Peoplefluent®, a leading social human capital management technology company, today announced the promotion of Frederik Ballon to Director of the company’s EMEA Sales and Operations. This appointment follows a powerful fourth quarter for Peoplefluent EMEA, during which the region realized bookings growth of 103 percent over the fourth quarter of 2011. A strong and consistent contributor to the region’s growth, Mr. Ballon will be responsible for all sales and operational management.
“Especially during fiscal struggles throughout Europe, we have seen accelerated adoption of our Talent Management suite and Social HCM Platform. Mitigating the negative impacts on collaborative work environments, which often result from differing time zones or distant geographies, Peoplefluent solutions have been deployed more broadly throughout EMEA in the last two years than they were in the five years prior,” said Charles S. Jones, chairman and CEO of Peoplefluent. “Frederik has been an invaluable resource to the business and, most importantly, to our customers as we have expanded rapidly in the region. We are delighted with today’s appointment and the continuity and endorsement it carries.”
Mr. Ballon has been an executive at Peoplefluent for eight years, working in a range of customer-facing roles such as a Managing Consultant, with responsibilities including sales, pre-sales, account management and implementations. His deep product knowledge, his extensive customer experience and his domain expertise have been instrumental in his consultative service approach to a range of Fortune 100 companies and global and domestic businesses throughout EMEA. Prior to his tenure at Peoplefluent, Mr. Ballon held various recruitment and staffing management positions in Brussels, Belgium at AMI Semiconductors, Belgacom Mobile, Mezquita & Associates and EMDS. Mr. Ballon was a Peoplefluent user before joining the company.
Mr. Ballon received a master’s of Science degree in Psychology from Catholic University Leuven, Belgium and a European master’s degree in Sport Psychology from Democritus University of Thrace, Greece. He received a post graduate in Business Administration from Catholic University Leuven.
Commenting on his new role, Mr. Ballon said, “I have been with Peoplefluent for nearly a decade and there has never been a more exciting time to be in this business. Following a year of incredible innovation, I am tremendously enthusiastic about the ways in which I can bring our solutions to bear as I partner with companies to drive employee engagement, increase efficiency, enhance collaboration and build profitability throughout their organizations.”
