Software and service provider ALG Software has appointed Frédéric Laluyaux as group vice president of sales and services.

Laluyaux joined ALG Software in 1997 in the Paris office responsible for growing the French division of the company. Five years later, he assumed the role of vice president of North American operations from the Atlanta office, which included driving the sales and marketing strategies across the operation and developing ALG Software’s partner relations. In the United States, he has increased revenue by nearly 60 percent.

“I’m honored by the new position at ALG Software and look forward to guiding sales strategy across the company,” said Laluyaux. “My goal is to maximize the sales opportunities available and ensure that we continue to deliver the best corporate performance management solutions to our customers.”

Revenue growth for the first fiscal quarter (February – April) of 2006 at ALG Software has increased 96 percent compared to the same quarter in 2005, rising to $6.7 million compared to $3.5 million.

“As our financial results illustrate, ALG Software is continuing to gain market strength as more and more organizations adopt our solutions. Fred has been instrumental in this success and is respected throughout the industry as an experienced sales professional with a deep understanding of the market,” said Mike Sherratt, CEO of ALG Software.

Before joining ALG Software, Laluyaux founded Transcribe Technologies, a telecommunication hardware device development company, where he managed the technical development and product manufacturing, as well as the global sales and marketing strategy.

Laluyaux holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the MBA Institute – INSEEC Group in Paris, France. He is fluent in French, English and Spanish.
