London, UK – June 19, 2018 – Dell Boomi (Boomi) today announced the appointment of Derek Thompson as Vice President of EMEA. Thompson will be responsible for expanding the organisation’s presence within the region as part of Boomi’s commitment to further growth in the cloud-integration market.

Thompson’s primary objective will be to scale the business by increasing investment in Western Europe, including the UK, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, the Nordics and Benelux countries, as well as plan for expansion in the Middle East. Alongside this, he will leverage channel partners to deliver on aggressive growth plans.

“Thanks to the successes of our current customers in the region, we’re now in a position where we have the portfolio technology solutions and traction to grow to a level where we can seriously dominate the cloud integration market within EMEA,” said Chris McNabb, CEO of Dell Boomi. “This is where Derek’s vast and invaluable experience in scaling businesses, combined with growing demand for integration platform as a service (iPaaS), will help us further establish ourselves as a leader in the EMEA market.”

Prior to joining Dell Boomi, Thompson was at Informatica, where he spent four years building, scaling and improving the Master Data Management (MDM) business in EMEA and leading the EMEA North region. Before that, he served as Managing Director, EMEA, at Kalido, and was the founder and CEO of Technica UK, the UK's largest independent data-management consultancy. Thompson brings more than two decades’ worth of entrepreneurial, leadership, sales and business-expansion experience to Boomi.

“Coming to Dell Boomi has been a breath of fresh air. It’s great to arrive at an organisation which has a passionate and engaged workforce that continuously delights its customers,” said Thompson. “There has never been a more exciting time to be in the cloud-integration market, and Boomi’s products and services are right in the sweet spot to help create The Connected Business across EMEA.”
