Paris, France, February 25, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Anaplan, the leader of cloud-based, in-memory business modeling and planning for sales, operations, and finance, today announced the appointment of Nicolas Forcade as Managing Director for France. In this role, Forcade will manage Anaplan’s growth in the French market, overseeing pre-sales, sales management, marketing, and customer success.

Forcade joins Anaplan from TalentSoft, where he was Vice President of Sales for France, responsible for strategic accounts, SMB, inside sales, and demand generation.
