Enterprise software industry heavyweight joins as company doubles down on growth trajectory. 

LONDON, Sept. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — IFS, the global cloud enterprise software provider, announces the appointment of André Robberts as the new regional President for Southern and Western Europe and LATAM. Robberts will be taking over from current president Marc Genevois, who will move to a new role as Global President of Strategic Initiatives.
