SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 9, 2011) - HumanConcepts, developer of HumanConcepts Organizational Planning Suite, has announced the appointment of Human Capital Management (HCM) industry veteran Nick Kemp as EMEA General Manager, leading all sales, marketing, finance, customer success and partner marketing for Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Working out of HumanConcepts' UK-based EMEA headquarters, Kemp will report directly to HumanConcepts President Luis Rivera.

"Nick is a key addition to our executive team and an HCM heavy hitter," said Rivera. "His track record as a results-driven managing director, deep e-business strategist and builder of high-performing direct and indirect sales teams speaks for itself. Nick's leadership will allow us to accelerate our EMEA business, broaden our global reach and deepen our partnerships with leading industry players."

Immediately prior to HumanConcepts, Kemp was a Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company (2008-2011), a global management consulting firm, and the SME EMEA general manager at SAP (2006-2008), where he helped build an entirely new organization to market the company's SaaS ERP solutions -- including go-to market strategies, marketplace branding, lead generation, and sales cycle processes.

"With his impressive credits rolling out SaaS solutions across EMEA," Rivera said, "I expect Nick to supercharge our own marketing and sales efforts for HumanConcepts Organizational Planning Suite, our new SaaS platform for managing organizational change, and to leverage the rapid growth opportunities in the region."

"I'm thrilled to be joining HumanConcepts," said Kemp. "HumanConcepts is recognized around the world as the leading provider of high-value organizational planning solutions that help enterprises visualize, plan, model and transition their workforces to an optimal state. The industry is in a dynamic phase of growth and innovation right now -- especially in EMEA, where continual workforce reorganizations and transitions are becoming the norm."
