Bijou, 41, as the company’s executive vice president of sales. In his new role, Bijou is responsible for inside, field-based and channel sales operations. Bijou is part of the executive management team, reporting to Eric C. Morgan, CEO.
SALT LAKE CITY (Business Wire EON) December 17, 2008 -- Bijou joins AdvancedMD following an 18-year career in the enterprise software and software-as-a-service industries. Bijou's most recent position was senior vice president of sales at UCN, Inc. (Nasdaq: UCNN), the market leader in on-demand contact center software. Prior to UCN, Bijou spent six years with Oracle Corporation (Nasdaq: ORCL), rising from Siebel senior account managerresponsible for hosted and on-premises CRM sales, to senior director of sales for the Oracle CRM product line in the U.S. and Canada. At Oracle, Bijou was recognized as the top account salesperson after his first year and every subsequent year was recognized as top regional manager.
Prior to Oracle, Bijou worked for EDI Technologies, a digital imaging company, first as a partner responsible for a nationwide sales force for the consulting division of the business, and later as CEO where he was recognized in 1996 as one of the top 100 executives in Utah.
"Chris has a proven ability to build successful world-class sales organizations that consistently perform at a high level," said Morgan. "This appointment rounds out our management team to take the company to the next level. We intend to accelerate our sales growth leveraging Chris' strength as a senior leader as well as his experience in software sales."
Bijou has been part of the SaaS movement since its beginning with Oracle/Siebel. "We were ahead of the market and proved the validity of on-demand CRM software," said Bijou. "Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM) then came along to become a nearly $4 billion giant in the hosted CRM space. Another SaaS pioneer, UCN, proved the model and has become the call center industry leader."
"We now see healthcare professionals adopting SaaS at an incredible rate because it is affordable and scalable for medical practices of all sizes," added Bijou. "AdvancedMD's medical office software is not only the market leader, but the most proven technology. It is poised to be the next Salesforce.com for healthcare – as evidenced by Inc. 500's recognition of AdvancedMD as one of the fastest growing companies in America."
