MONTREAL, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharegate, the Office 365 & SharePoint management tool, known in information technology circles for its simplicity and user-friendliness, has appointed Sébastien Leduc as its Chief Product Officer (CPO). As CPO, Sébastien will be responsible for driving innovation and improving all aspects surrounding the Sharegate software.
Sébastien Leduc's appointment to CPO of Sharegate clearly portrays the organization's commitment to delivering a product according to their clients' actual needs. GSOFT, Sharegate's parent company, operates with a single motto in mind: "For a greater workplace."
Leduc's vision for the future success of Sharegate is in line with GSOFT's philosophy. As he puts it: "I feel that Sharegate is directly aligned with GSOFT's philosophy in that we also focus on building a tool that helps people with their day-to-day tasks. Sharegate helps customers manage their SharePoint environments, so we need to keep improving our product in order to allow people to sleep at night knowing their environments are secure and optimal. This is even more true with the rising adoption of Office 365, where many people feel they're losing control over what's happening. The goal is to develop our software so clients can stay in control."
Simon De Baene, Sharegate's CEO, has complete confidence in his company cofounder's ability to take the product to the next level. "Sébastien has been with me since the start, and I know the kind of creativity and commitment he's capable of," De Baene says, adding: "Sébastien developed our entire Partner Program. He's been at the forefront of client relations since the very beginning, so it just makes sense that he should be in charge of learning what they need, and making sure our product evolves according to these needs by incorporating new requirements into future versions of the software. While interviewing CPO prospects, there were stars in Sébastien's eyes when he spoke about the product and where he planned to take it. His passion cemented my decision to appoint him as CPO."
Speaking to Leduc about his plans for the future, you can actually feel his commitment to clients' needs. When he says things like: "We want to listen to our customers in order to understand their unique pain points, and make sure we implement solutions to these issues into our product. We have a strong in-house development team, and our focus is on consistently improving our product to suit the unique requirements of all our clients," you know the Sharegate product is in the right hands.
