Frankfurt, Germany/Geneva, Switzerland, November 22, 2021

Following its global growth strategy, the newly merged technology and business consulting company DIGITALL recently opened a representation and sales office in Geneva, Switzerland. The further expansion into West Switzerland is the next logical step for the company to become a leader in digital transformation and cloud experience in Europe. DIGITALL already operates globally with over 1,400 employees in 27 offices and 12 countries in Europe and North America. The Swiss branches will be led by Frédéric Demierre, an entrepreneur with 30 years of experience in the IT industry.

For the last 10 years, the company has been operating under the name ec4u in Switzerland with its headquarters in Pfäffikon and a Center of Excellence in Lausanne. After the merge with BULPROS into DIGITALL, it has set the strategic goal to further expand into the Swiss market to better serve its customers and partners. A key differentiator of DIGITALL is its diversified portfolio that covers 360° digital transformation services and high-level consulting specialized by industry.

As of November 1, Frédéric Demierre took over the management of the Swiss branches while keeping his position as Senior Vice President (SVP) in charge of growth and strategy at DIGITALL. Demierre is a Geneva-born entrepreneur and was a pioneer in e-commerce and CRM before establishing the first partnership with Salesforce in Switzerland 15 years ago.

"I am honored to represent DIGITALL in one of Europe's most successful regions. By combining our consultants' expertise on leading cloud platforms with our industry-focused business skills, we will help companies accelerate their growth and transform their business processes in the digital world", explains Frédéric Demierre.

Accelerated growth in Switzerland

Geneva, West Switzerland was chosen as the new location because it is a preferred destination for services in digital transformation and digital cloud experience. The new branch will focus on developing and strengthening DIGITALL's competencies in Salesforce, Microsoft, SAP, custom software development and Cyber Security. DIGITALL’s goal is to hire more than 100 consultants and developers in the local market by the end of 2022 and to grow its team to more than 300 experts in the next three years. This growth strategy is supported by the DIGITALL ACADEMY initiative and building of strategic alliances with key players in education in the region. What makes DIGITALL not only an attractive place to work but also an award-winning company employer is the "hiring for attitude and training for skills"-approach.

According to David Laux, COO of DIGITALL (formerly CEO of ec4u) "Technology and innovation are in DIGITALL’s DNA, but it is our employees who make the difference in this dynamic sector. By investing in West Switzerland, we believe we can rebalance supply and demand in the digital sector, with the main objective of helping our clients create value and remain competitive in today's hyper-connected world".
