Ex-Microsoft Dynamics manager Christian Lindberg Joins Acumatica
Lindberg was a well known presence in the Microsoft Dynamics partner channel, working mostly behind the scenes on solution sales and marketing strategy. He was also the owner of the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD) program and the Dynamics Marketplace.
"Not the first person from Microsoft to join Acumatica, but one of the most notable," writes PartnerCompete. "Seems like a good fit as a number of Dynamics ISVs now integrate to Acumatica."
A 20 year ERP veteran, Lindberg worked for Navision/Damgaard in Denmark and Germany the company's acquisition by Microsoft.
In this new role, Lindberg will be responsible for growing Acumatica's Independent Software Vendor (ISV) ecosystem.
Acumatica's global ISV program includes more than 60 ISV partners - some who also play in the Microsoft Dynamics market - with integrated vertical functionality from JAAS Systems, Jamis, Accellos, and seamless integration from partners such as Avalara, ADP, ALLiGACOM, CompuPay and SIPD Services.
In his role at Acumatica, Lindberg will likely maintain some ties to Microsoft - his new employer has provided its cloud-based solution on the .NET framework and Windows Azure platform since 2009.
Lindberg's announcement comes less than a month away from the launch of Acumatica 4.0, the broadest, most extensive cloud ERP product release in the company's history.
