Pacific Fund Systems (PFS) has appointed Didier Lucotte (pictured, right) as cloud services manager, overseeing its PFS-Cloud initiatives.

PFS is set of offer its core PFS-Paxus and PFS-Connect products via a hosted and managed cloud deployment model, with Lucotte managing new and existing client migration.

Lucotte joins with significant experience in cloud-based projects, having previously held the same role at Isle of Man telecoms company Manx Telecom.

In his new role, he will be based in PFS’s Isle of Man headquarters.

Lucotte said: “Cloud delivery of PFS products will further allow PFS’s clients to focus on their core businesses, reducing overall dependence on internal or third-party IT resources.”

“With the number of online software-to-software application program interfaces expected to grow in scale and complexity as the wider software application industry moves to the cloud, I am very pleased to be joining PFS at such an exciting time in the group’s development.”

Paul Kneen (pictured, left), COO of PFS, said: “Didier Lucotte’s wealth of specialist knowledge and experience will greatly benefit the group’s planned delivery of PFS-Paxus via the cloud, as a PFS hosted solution, targeted for launch later this year. Didier Lucotte’s appointment reflects our continued investment in people and commitment to our business operations.”
