Datavard Opens Singapore Office

Introducing Ekrem Namazci as Managing Director Asia-Pacific and Japan


Heidelberg (Germany), February 16th 2017 – Software and consulting company Datavard expands into Asia. Datavard takes the next step in its global strategy by opening the doors of its first office in Singapore. The goal is to further extend international presence, develop new markets and position Datavard as expert in analytics, data management and system operations in the SAP world.

Presence in Singapore grants Datavard access into the Asian market. This Asian branch is the 11th international office for the growing Datavard company. The Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) region has been uncharted territory for the SAP partner, although the Asian IT market in general and the SAP market in particular have seen dynamic growth over the past years. “With local presence, we can better serve customers across the globe”, Gregor Stoeckler, Datavard CEO explains.

Ekrem Namazci has been appointed APJ Regional Managing Director. His responsibilities include Datavard go-to-market and development of a regional partner and customer network with the local sales and support team. Ekrem Namazci acted previously as the Managing Director APAC with the Canadian software provider Longview Solutions, where he successfully initiated and expanded the company’s Asian branch. Prior to that, he had worked as the Sales Director at Arcplan (now Longview) for strategic European customers and at SAP Germany for mid-sized companies and key accounts. He earned a global MBA from University of Singapore, Harvard Business School, Wharton School (University of Pennsylvania) and the Indian School of Business in business administration and IT.

“Singapore is the next logical step for Datavard as one of Europe’s fastest growing IT companies. This region is leading high-tech advancement with a young community open to innovation. I’m excited about establishing and expanding an exceptionally dynamic company in this remarkably dynamic region.” Ekrem Namazci.
