Manhattan Associates today announced the appointment of Craig Summers to the position of managing director, UK. He will lead and manage all aspects of Manhattan’s UK business, including Sales, Professional Services and Customer Services operations and will be responsible for driving business growth and helping customers maximise their investments in Manhattan’s solutions and services.
Summers joins Manhattan from Oracle where he held senior leadership positions including, most recently, senior director for Customer Experience (CX) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) SaaS Applications. Leading a cross-functional team of more than 100 people across multiple countries, he successfully transitioned the Oracle CX / CRM division from a traditional ‘on premise’ software sales operation into a dynamic, transactional Cloud / ‘SaaS’ oriented business, and delivered significant business growth.
“We look forward to leveraging Craig’s knowledge of the increasingly digital retail market and his deep understanding of how companies purchase and leverage technology,” said Manhattan’s senior vice president, EMEA, Henri Seroux. “This, along with his clear leadership skills and strong track record of delivering sales-led business growth, will prove invaluable in driving Manhattan’s UK business forwards.”
