Antoine Leboyer Appointed to Martello Board of Directors
Former CEO of GSX brings enterprise software expertise.
OTTAWA, ON, Nov. 18, 2020 /CNW/ – Martello Technologies Group Inc., (“Martello” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MTLO), a developer of enterprise digital experience monitoring (“DEM”) solutions announced today that Antoine Leboyer, the former CEO of GSX has been appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors, subject to TSXV approval. There will now be 9 directors on Martello’s board, with co-founder Niall Gallagher having retired in September 2020.
Prior to its acquisition by Martello, Mr. Leboyer was the CEO of GSX for 13 years. In this role, he successfully led the company’s strategic shift from a focus on the IBM market to address the burgeoning market for Microsoft 365 end user monitoring solutions. After growing GSX to over $6M in revenues, Martello acquired the business in May 2020 to enter the Microsoft 365 market and create a DEM market leader. Mr. Leboyer holds a Master’s degree in electrical engineering from France’s Centrale-Supélec and an MBA from Harvard Business School. Mr. Leboyer has co-authored a book entitled Building Routes to Customers: Proven Strategies for Profitable Growth, is a TEDx speaker, and a board member of the Geneva Liberal Synagogue.
“I’m delighted to welcome Antoine to Martello’s Board of Directors”, said John Proctor, President and CEO of Martello. “Having worked closely with Antoine for close to a year, I’m confident that his expertise in enterprise software, synthetic transactions and the Microsoft ecosystem will be invaluable to Martello as the Company scales to become a dominant digital experience monitoring player”.
Co-Chairman of the Martello Board of Directors Terry Matthews also highlighted Mr. Leboyer’s expertise: “Antoine will be an excellent addition to the Martello board of directors, and I welcome him to the team”, said Mr. Matthews. “His strong foundation in technology and business development, combined with his executive leadership in driving GSX growth through shifting markets, will be key assets for Martello”.
“I’m very happy to be joining Martello’s board of directors, continuing the journey to DEM market dominance with Martello”, said Mr. Leboyer. “I’m pleased to share what I’ve learned over more than 13 years building an enterprise software business, with the support of an accomplished group of business leaders, and I look forward to working with the entire Martello team”.
