Infor has named Nicole Anasenes as chief financial officer. Anasenes joins Infor this month, reporting to CEO Charles Phillips out of the Manhattan headquarters.
Anasenes most recently served as VP and CFO of IBM's Software Middleware Group, where she helped drive significant operating efficiency, enter and scale new business areas, and integrate multiple acquisitions. She also served as VP and CFO of IBM's cloud business unit, helping to define and operationalize IBM's cloud computing business, and as director of emerging markets for IBM's Global Technology Services organization.
Anasenes has an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a bachelor's degree from New York University.
With the addition of Anasenes, four members of Infor's leadership team are women: Anasenes, Infor COO Pam Murphy, SVP of Global Support Marylon McGinnis, and SVP of Global License Management and Maintenance Mary Trick. Earlier this year Infor announced an internal initiative, the Women's Infor Network, which is a career development program with strategic emphasis on growing female talent within the company.
"Nicole's broad mix of business and financial skills will help Infor embark on its next phase of global expansion; though we currently have customers in more than 200 countries and territories, with the tenfold increase in new product releases over the last three years and a completely refreshed product line, there is an opportunity to expand into more industries and cities and add more partners in each country," said Charles Phillips, CEO of Infor. "Additionally, Nicole's experience will help drive Infor's strategy around the recently launched UpgradeX program, where on-premises customers can move to the cloud for a fixed migration fee of $55,000."
