Firstlogic, Inc., a global provider of enterprise information quality solutions, today announced the appointment of former SAS executive Walter Wijn to the newly created position of Global Channel Partner Director for the European, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regions. In addition, the company detailed plans of international educational and seminar activities with a host of global channel partners.
Wijn brings local knowledge, expertise and support to Firstlogic's European distributors, customers and partners.

Data quality education, a hallmark of Firstlogic's approach of adding value to client organizations, empowers companies to improve processes and programs that increase the success of business intelligence, data warehouse, CRM and ERP projects. As part of the company's commitment to global expansion, Firstlogic speakers recently educated new audiences by highlighting the importance of information management strategies at events in Brazil, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. This week, Firstlogic continues international education with instruction at the Managing Information and Data Quality Conference in London.
Firstlogic is rapidly expanding its international reach through global channel partners covering the United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Brazil and Mexico. Firstlogic's global growth is driven by enterprise-level organizations seeking to maximize the power of their data.
"As data quality is more and more becoming the determining factor in the success of CRM, ERP and BI projects across organizations, Firstlogic's industry-leading solutions are crucial for enterprise-wide or departmental projects that touch data-a company's most important asset," said new EMEA Global Channel Partner Director Wijn. "Firstlogic has demonstrated success with many global brands across multiple industries. Customers see improved ROI, more efficient business practices or better customer relationships after the successful implementation of a data quality project. I am very proud to join this great team and further the data quality thought leadership in Europe and other locations around the globe."
"As demonstrated by our growth and investment in global activity, Firstlogic is committed to providing our highly regarded data quality software and services to global corporations," said Mike Keilen, Firstlogic vice president of global distribution. "Walter is an instrumental member of Firstlogic's global division, bringing great skills and experience to our global partners, and current and future customers.
