Arkadin, a collaboration services provider, has appointed Didier Jaubert as chief partnership officer.
Jaubert will be responsible for the company’s extensive worldwide partner ecosystem.
The partner program targets both leading technology companies for reseller and audio integration agreements of their products hosted on Arkadin’s platform and telecommunications providers for strategic white-label offerings of Arkadin’s collaboration services.
Jaubert has served as SVP for Orange Business Services since 2007 where he was recognized for expertise in outsourcing and system integration as well as strong negotiation skills in contracts and partnerships in global customer environments.
Prior to that Jaubert spent 20 years at IBM at various management positions in Sales and Global Services in France and the U.S.
Jaubert is based in Arkadin’s Paris headquarters. He is a member of Arkadin’s Executive Committee, reporting to CEO Olivier de Puymorin.
The appointment comes at a time when NTT Communications is planning to pick up 91.2 percent stake in Arkadin.
Talks are on with AXA Private Equity which has investments in Arkadin, the world’s third-largest collaboration service provider. The management of Arkadin will reinvest alongside NTT Com.
