From roots firmly established in the IT revolution of the 1980s working for Kewill Systems plc, Hugh Scantlebury went on to join Systems Union in 1992. As EMEA Channel Sales Director he led a team managing a £30 million market which generated in excess of £11 million pounds worth of net revenue from channels selling integrated financial and business solutions in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. At Sage, working as General Manager for the Corporate and European Division, he launched two new business initiatives focusing on OLAP and e-Business development services. In 2002 Hugh took up the role of managing director for a 3i-backed business, Foundation Systems, which specialised in the supply, implementation and support of integrated financial and business management. This business became a wholly owned subsidiary of Systems Union Group in December 2003, which in turn was subsequently acquired by Infor, a US$2.1 billion corporation backed by Golden Gate Capital in 2006.
His early career was spent working for Smiths Industries where he was responsible for the implementation of a variety of mainframe and mini-computer systems covering manufacturing, distribution, accounting, and payroll. After a spell as a senior consultant with Hoskyns, Colin joined Systems Union as a founding member and director of R&D, leading the development of SunSystems, the mid-market accounting systems leader, from its early inception in the early eighties. In 1999, Colin recognised that solutions based on emerging web technologies offered an exciting new opportunity and left to setup ncSoft to develop a set of web based applications covering time recording, expense management, and procurement. In 2004, Infor (Systems Union) purchased ncSoft and now offers these products as part of their SunSystems procurement and productivity portfolio of products.
