Posted: February 5th, 2019

Welcoming two new employees to the Cedar Bay team!


Cedar Bay is pleased to announce two new additions to our team to support our continued growth.


Tony Higgs joins Cedar Bay;


Tony Higgs has recently joined our Business Development Manager team at Cedar Bay Europe. We are very pleased to have Tony join our team from IFS bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience specifically around IFS ERP implementations. Tony Spent 17 years at IFS , starting as a project manager on large implementations such as Rover Cars. Following this Tony moved into a customer  account Role as a Customer Operations Manager, which bought him into contact with many of the IFS UK customers.  For the last 6 years Tony lead the UK Consulting team and was regarded highly both globally within IFS and the UK IFS Customer environment.


Throughout his time at IFS Tony has worked with all of the partners and forming good relationships, so when looking for the next challenge the move into the Partner network was obvious. “When  asked why Cedar Bay, I felt with IFS seeing the Partner Ecosystem as one of the keys to their future growth and  speaking to Roger (MD Cedar Bay) who saw the opportunity to grow with IFS was key to his business plans and as such offered an exciting opportunity to be part of the Dynamic team at Cedar Bay”


Tony’s role will include both working with new and existing customers to provide a sound knowledge of how best to implement IFS Applications and make best use of customer investments. Welcome on-board Tony.

“The growth of the partner network brought me back into the IFS world, I trusted Cedar Bay as they were a long standing partner of Olympus and I wanted to be a part of Cedar Bay’s success story going forward.”
