March 31, 2009 - Philippe Albert, director of DP Technology Europe, has announced that growth plans have been met in 2008 with a steady 30 percent increase in revenue, and that he has recruited three new Channel Managers to deal with ESPRIT’s strong growth in the major areas.
Patrick Burgun is now in place in Germany – #1 market – within a growing network of resellers. Luca Ruggiero is joining the Italian group – #2 market – with a dedicated support team, and David Meynaud is in place in France, in the ESPRIT European headquarters, in charge of market development. These three new high-level profiles are set with long-term objectives, dedicated to stability and support of the Strongest European Network of ESPRIT CAM Centers.
Patrick Burgun has acquired very strong experience in indirect business at Autodesk Intergraph and IBM.
After earning a bachelor’s degree in math and mechanics, Patrick — fluent in French, German and English – went on to obtain a bilingual degree in mechanical engineering at the Institut Supérieur Franco-Allemand de Techniques, d'Economies et de Sciences (ISFATES), for which he studied in both Metz, France, and Saarbrücken, Germany.
He began his career in 1985 at IBM, where he worked as a CAD/NC specialist in APT/AC and CADAM NCII. “CAM has always been in my life,” he says. “I grew up in an industrial environment and manufacturing was part of my college classes, so CAM is in my blood.”
In the intervening years, Patrick served in various aspects of the industry, including, but not limited to, pre-sales, sales development and channel management. He describes his new career at DP in six words: “Great team, great product, fantastic opportunities.” Email Contact
Luca Ruggiero was born in Turin. He studied at the Pininfarina Institute of Moncalieri and became a specialist in mold design, time management, marketing and sales strategies.Luca has both technical and business backgrounds in CAD and CAM, having worked in the past at Open Mind, Think 3 and Autodesk. He lives in Trofarello, near Turin, and will be in charge of Italy as channel manager.
He finds his beginning with DP as a very good start, with professional and focused people. He’s proud to be part of the team. Email Contact
Another DP’s new face is David Meynaud, who is in charge of market development. He will increase DP Europe’s ability to support its growing body of resellers and partners.
After studying engineering sciences at Ecole Nationale des Arts et Métiers in Lille, David worked for a decade in business-to-business software sales for French companies LECTRA Systems, and the CEGID Group.
David’s background in software and business-to-business activities are expected to ease his transition at DP, where he will work as a channel manager dedicated to regions of Northern and Eastern Europe. Email Contact
