The Software Report is pleased to announce The Top 25 Software CEOs of Europe for 2020

The Software Report is pleased to announce The Top 25 Software CEOs of Europe for 2020. These exemplary individuals lead some of the largest software companies in the region and globally and are recognized for their strategic decision-making and agile leadership. Each nominee was carefully reviewed, and awardees were selected for their industry contributions, workplace culture, and sustained company growth.

This year’s awardees and their companies have made substantial achievements over the past year, despite pandemic-related economic challenges. They have recognized the accelerated need for workplace solutions that facilitate digital transformation, remote collaboration, and facility management and have produced effective solutions addressing these needs. For example, the 3Dexperience software developed by Dassault Systèmes has been used to help safely reopen employee buildings that were closed during the pandemic. Similarly, BluJay’s supply chain management solutions have assisted their customers in managing volume increases resulting from the global health crisis.

The CEOs that comprise this year’s list have stood out as leaders in a highly competitive market largely due to their flexibility, ambition, and focus on innovation, which allowed their companies to thrive. The Software Report team celebrates the accomplishments of these individuals.

Bernard Charlès (Dassault Systèmes), Steve Hare (Sage), Dieter Schlosser (SoftwareONE), Sanjay Brahmawar (Software AG), Jason Kingdon (Blue Prism), Mike Ettling (Unit4), Silvio Kutić (Infobip), Hande Cilingir (Insider), Klaus Holse (SimCorp), Simon Paris (Finastra), Doug Lowther (Irdeto), Kyle Ferguson (Confirmit), Andrew Kirkwood (BluJay Solutions), Mark Shuttleworth (Canonical), Michael Kelly (FINEOS), Marc Murphy (Fenergo), Nick Wilson (Allocate Software), Ben Dorks (Ideagen), Mariusz Gralewski (DocPlanner), Sarvarth Misra (ContractPodAi), Benoît De Nayer and Kenya Rose (Actito), Justin Lawless (Intact Software), Mark Ash (Pure360), Chris Barnes (Tracsis), Pierre Cesarini (Claranova).
