LONDON, U.K., 13th October 2005 -- GeacÂ® (TSX: GAC, NASDAQ:GEAC), a global enterprise software company, today announced the appointment of Alistair Bremner to UK Finance Sector - Sales. The appointment of Mr. Bremner, who has over 20 yearsâ experience selling high value enterprise software solutions, represents another step in the execution of Geacâs financial services industry initiative.
Mr. Bremner has worked for Dun & Bradstreet Software (now part of Geac), Peoplesoft and Saratoga Systems, where he has successfully sold into a number of vertical industries but has consistently maintained a strong bias towards the financial services sector. He reports to Doug Bilsby, UK Sales Director for Geac MPC performance management software.
Mr. Bremner said: "Geac already has a prestige UK customer base in the financial services sector, including Chelsea Building Society, Britannia Building Society and Old Mutual. I look forward to expanding this base by showing other financial services companies how Geac MPC helps bridge the âstrategy gapâ by linking their corporate strategies to day-to-day execution. Closing this gap will be increasingly vital as UK companies are under mounting pressures from the Operating Financial Review (OFR), Basle II and especially shareholders."
