Following a period of rapid growth and expansion, pan-European security VAD Infinigate Group has appointed Patric Berger to Managing Director of Infinigate France and Senior Vice President Corporate Accounts of the expanded Infinigate team in France.
Infinigate France, comprising D2B, Nuvias and Infinigate, will be based in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, from early 2023, and Patric Berger will be responsible for a team of 80 people, serving more than 3000 partners.
Infinigate's expansion positions the company as a market leader in the EMEA VAD market for cybersecurity, secure networking and secure cloud, serving market segments ranging from SMBs to large enterprises to service providers.
With Vuzion, Starlink and Nuvias now part of the Infinigate Group, the group has a broader geographic footprint and increased relevance to existing and future customers and solution providers, including those offering cloud and Microsoft-related solutions.
Patric Berger, Managing Director of Infinigate France, said: "the acquisition of Nuvias will expand our vendor portfolio and help us grow faster in Europe. For France, this expansion of Infinigate means more expertise and more customers to address. The ability to create extended service and product offerings is a key benefit to the market. Suppliers benefit immediately from access to a very broad set of partners. Combined with our technical skills and sales force, this will enable them to enter new accounts and grow their business. In addition, the recent acquisition of Vuzion will allow us to launch a dedicated approach to Microsoft partners. As for the merger with StarLink, it opens up opportunities for us to expand our competencies and solutions throughout the EMEA region."
Klaus Schlichtherle, CEO of Infinigate, comments: "we have significantly expanded our team to around 1,200 colleagues in 45 regional offices in more than 30 countries, ranging from Ireland to Pakistan - supporting partners and customers in over 50 countries. Infinigate's focus remains on technical expertise to deliver best-in-class cybersecurity, secure networking and secure cloud solutions to the SME and enterprise market segments - and we look forward to this exciting new chapter."
