LONDON, THURSDAY 11th JULY: Popular human resources information system (HRIS) specialist, Cezanne, is thrilled to announce the appointment of Simon Noble as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Simon brings with him a wealth of industry experience and a track record of success: perfectly positioning the company for meeting its ambitious growth and innovation targets for the years ahead.

About Cezanne’s new CEO Simon Noble

Simon joined the business just under 18 months ago as its Chief Commercial Officer. With over 25 years’ experience in delivering digital transformations and people-orientated leadership at companies including Oracle, SAP and CoreHR (now Access Group), he’s since worked closely with Cezanne’s founder, Alberto Gabbai: becoming a key driver in the company’s continued success within the HRIS market.

Speaking about his appointment, Simon said “It’s an honour and a privilege to be stepping up into the role of CEO. There’s clearly a sense of responsibility given the expectations of both our customers and employees, plus the fact Alberto has created an amazing legacy in Cezanne. In the time I’ve been here, I’ve already seen first-hand that everyone in the business lives and breathes best practice in terms of what we do, our culture and our values. I feel there are exciting times ahead for everyone here in the company and I’m delighted to be part of that journey…and who doesn’t love a challenge?”

Simon’s vision for the future

Speaking about his plans, Simon stated that “I want to continue Alberto’s amazing legacy by helping Cezanne be the best possible version of itself: somewhere our people love to work, and that passion shines through to every aspect of our business. From the products we offer, to the service we provide our clients. We already have the foundations for that; with a reputation for providing outstanding value, products and services… but it’s vital they’re not lost or eroded as we grow.”

Simon added that “As Cezanne continues its evolution, the needs of our customers will continue to sit at the heart of everything we do. We operate in demanding industry with a vibrant user community. So, we want to grow the business to meet every need of our customers at every stage of their journey. And, thanks to our recent investments and ongoing successes, we’re brilliantly placed to continue to do exactly that in the markets we operate.”

The last word from Cezanne’s founder, Alberto Gabbai

Speaking about Simon’s appointment, company founder Alberto Gabbai said that “My goal with the creation of Cezanne was to create the most loved HR system in the market. With Simon’s expertise, enthusiasm and focus on the customer experience, I believe we have the perfect person to help Cezanne become a true market leader. I wish him all the best success.”
