Microsoft partner Enavate has hired three Microsoft  veterans to join their cloud migration practice.

Chad Sogge will take on the role of Ground to Cloud Software Executive, the company stated. Jennifer Ranz and Paul Lindgren will join as program leads.

The trio will be core to Enavate's Dynamics GP cloud migration practice, according to the company. The move from Dynamics GP to Dynamics 365 is one of the primary transition paths faced by customers in the Dynamics customer base today, with tens of thousands of companies still running Dynamics GP.

Between the three new hires, Enavate gains over 60 years of ERP software R&D, product management, and operations experience. Sogge has been a well-known Dynamics SMB ERP spokesperson for many years, first for Dynamics GP and then for Dynamics 365 Business Central. Ranz is also a familiar figure in the community, working both on the product and partner sides and often presenting on the conference circuit and online. And Lindgren, while not as visible publicly, worked 24 years at Microsoft and Great Plains before that.

“Enavate’s Vision 2024, along with the culture of innovation and empowerment, were the big game changers in our decision to join the company,” Sogge said. “We’re very excited to be able to use our collective expertise to help achieve Enavate’s goal of building repeatable cloud migration solutions.”
