PARIS, FRANCE – April 6, 2022– Tradeshift, a cloud-based, B2B network and leader in electronic invoicing and accounts payable automation, today announces that Fabien Lomet has joined the company as Vice President, Western Europe. Based in Paris, he will drive the expansion of Tradeshift’s business and sales operations across France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, Greece and Italy, in support of the company’s overarching global growth strategy.
“Tradeshift’s vision to connect every company in the world digitally reflects perfectly the way enterprise priorities have evolved over the past two years,” said Fabien Lomet. “Prior to the pandemic, large-scale digitalization projects were often focused on internal operations and efficiencies. That has now been replaced by a far more holistic mindset, with businesses recognizing their ability to remain agile and succeed rests on digitalizing the relationships they hold with their entire ecosystem of suppliers and customers. Tradeshift is transforming the way buyers and suppliers find, connect and transact with one another. It’s an incredibly powerful proposition, and I’m excited to be joining such a fantastic team.”
Fabien Lomet brings a deep understanding of the enterprise technology market and cloud-based business models, having spent more than two decades working in leadership roles with some of the world’s most successful software and consulting firms. He joins Tradeshift following a successful period as Director of Sales for Large Enterprise at ServiceNow where he drove revenue growth across financial services and industry verticals. He also held similar positions at Kyriba, Pegasystems and IBM.
Fabien Lomet spent the early part of his career at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, helping organizations maximize the outcomes of large-scale e-procurement and supply chain digitalization projects.
“Fabien is joining Tradeshift at the perfect time,” said James Stirk SVP, Sales and Marketing at Tradeshift. “Businesses have woken up to the need to digitalize their trading relationships. France’s decision to join other countries in mandating electronic invoicing will further accelerate this shift and the need for partners who can deliver at speed and scale. Fabien’s blend of consulting, enterprise SaaS and Fintech experience is a significant advantage given the strategic importance customers and prospects are giving to our value proposition within the context of their wider digital transformation objectives.”
The French government recently announced that in 2024, the digitization of B2B domestic invoices will become mandatory for large and mid-sized companies. Two years later, on January 1, 2026, the same will apply to small-sized companies. Tradeshift supports e-invoicing and tax compliance in more than 50 countries, and already has experience helping businesses submit invoices through Chorus Pro, the official and obligatory platform selected by the French government, which all electronic invoices must pass through.
Tradeshift is advising businesses to start preparing for the changes now, and is working directly with partners including Sovos to ensure its solutions remain ready to support companies through the transition. Find out how you can begin to prepare for the coming changes in France here.
