Leading merchant software provider, Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS), has appointed Andrew Wilkinson as European Sales Director, with an initial focus on the UK.

Andrew, who has more than 20 years of sales experience in the distribution, merchant and manufacturing software industries, joins the Hungerford based company as it experiences a period of impressive organic and acquisitive growth.

He said, “I am thrilled to be joining KCS and working with such a passionate and pioneering team as they continue to develop their innovative solutions.”

Ian Bendelow, Chief Executive Officer at KCS said, “Andrew has strong organisational and commercial skills and I look forward to him playing a key role in further building relationships with our customers and creating strategies to help the company continue to grow.”

The KCS objective is to design systems and services to meet the business needs of all types and sizes of distributive company - and to work closely with them to ensure they get the very best from their investment in the software. K8 Babbage is the company’s current major software release. It can be delivered to customers via a range of flexible solutions to suit individual businesses, including the KCS Cloud or a SAAS (software as a service) model that delivers a known cost for budgeting and the seamless addition of new users and branches as the business grows.

In addition to its UK operations in Hungerford, Bourne End and Newcastle, KCS also has major facilities serving customers in Ireland, Netherlands and South Africa. In 2015, the company opened offices in North Carolina and more recently acquired Texas based Mincron Software Systems.
