Paris, 26 April 2017 - Finalcad, a global leader in field mobile apps and predictive analytics for construction, infrastructure, energy and concessions, today announces the appointment of Christophe des Dorides as VP Alliances & Channel Sales.
Shortly after its creation in 2011, Finalcad has seen a growing demand from international customers. As of today, Finalcad has delivered 15,000 PRO projects in 35 countries, and its mobile app, available in more than 30 different languages, has been widely adopted by users from 170 countries. This global DNA is at the heart of Finalcad’s growth strategy, and has been clearly recognised by Series B investors Serena Capital, Aster Capital and CapHorn Invest.
Along with its international expansion, Finalcad has also seen a growing demand from C-level decision makers within large contractors and developers looking for comprehensive digital transformation of their construction and facility management processes. This shift to company-wide transformations often requires the involvement of System Integrators and Strategic Consulting partners.
“During the past year and months, our Business Development team has been working on setting up partnerships with business partners and resellers in China, Japan, Korea, Peru and Singapore. However, our ambition to scale up our partnerships model required a fully-dedicated, seasoned profile. We found Christophe fits this requirement perfectly.” said Joffroy Louchart, Head of Business Development, Finalcad.
“I am delighted to join such a promising company as Finalcad. The potential for international growth is huge, making it an unlimited business opportunity for Partners. As Finalcad continues to scale, I will dedicate my 30-year passion for Alliances and Channel partnerships, and more recently as an entrepreneur, to generate replicable and mutually beneficial partnering propositions while keeping the startup culture of agility.” said Christophe des Dorides, VP Alliances & Channel Sales Finalcad.
In his new role with Finalcad, Christophe des Dorides will oversee the management of all existing and future Alliances and Channel Partners, as well as the FINALCAD Partner Program (FPP). This includes partnerships with Business Partners, Value-Added Resellers (VAR), System Integrators, and Strategic Consulting companies.

He has then held various management positions within Oracle for 17 years, including managing Oracle Application Alliances across EMEA (Channels, Independent Software Vendors (ISV), System Integrators and Strategic Consulting Companies). Prior to Finalcad, Christophe was an entrepreneur for 5 years, managing complex projects with multiple external players.
