“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.”
