NEW YORK - Jul 22, 2015
Infor, the industry cloud company, announced it has hired Wall Street veteran Jeff Laborde as Chief Financial Officer.

"After investing heavily in R&D to deliver the first set of industry suites delivered in the cloud, Infor is heading into a period of high growth," said Charles Phillips, CEO of Infor. "Jeff Laborde, with his extensive background in technology finance, is a perfect fit to help guide Infor through this next phase in the evolution of the company."
Laborde most recently served as CFO of SumTotal Systems, Inc., a supplier of Human Capital Management (HCM) software.
