IFS appoints Darren Roos as CEO

Enterprise applications company IFS has appointed Darren Roos as new CEO. The appointment is effective 1 April 2018 and aligns with the retirement of Alastair Sorbie at the end of Q1 2018.

Most recently Roos was president of SAP’s Cloud ERP business, and prior to that, significantly grew Software AG’s international operations, which enabled the company to triple in size during his tenure.

Per Franzen, partner at EQT (the owner of IFS), said, “Darren’s experience, knowledge and proven track record of building successful businesses in the markets where IFS operates make him a great choice as CEO. The appointment of Darren comes at a time when IFS has a real opportunity to generate further momentum in the sector and extend its leadership position. This is good news for customers, partners and of course employees.”

Commenting on his retirement, Alastair Sorbie said: “I am proud to have built IFS into a global organisation during my 12 years as CEO. I would like to thank the many colleagues who have been part of this journey — they have helped sustain a culture that enables IFS to attract and retain talented employees and industry-leading customers. I wish them, Darren and whole of the IFS community the very best for the future.”
