SAN JOSE, Calif. (May 05, 2010) –

Intacct, the leader in cloud financial management and accounting applications, today announced the appointment of Larry Blair as its vice president of professional services. Blair brings to Intacct more than 30 years of deep industry and broad operational experience. In this role, he will oversee all professional services delivery, operations and consulting partner support for Intacct.

Intacct manages customer implementations with a team of internal consultants, as well as a growing roster of implementation partners. Blair will work to further expand Intacct’s implementation partner program and ensure everyone has access to the world-class tools, techniques, templates and methodologies that help Intacct’s consultants and partners deliver on time and on budget implementations.

“Larry Blair is an excellent addition to the Intacct management team and will be a huge asset to the company as our client base continues to grow at a rapid pace,” said Robert Reid, president and CEO of Intacct. “Larry will oversee one of the most important aspects of our client relationship – the initial implementation. Unlike the historically high levels of failed or over-budget on-premises ERP deployments, Intacct already has a great track record of getting clients up and running on our applications quickly and on budget. Larry will be focused on ensuring on-going high levels of customer success and satisfaction.”

“I’m excited to join Intacct at a time when the company is growing fast, and partners are a key component to accelerating that growth even further,” said Larry Blair. “I view our implementation partners as an extension of my internal implementation staff, and a great option for our customers. The process of sharing best practices is extremely important, both for the success of our partners and for the clients they serve. I also see a great opportunity for our partners to leverage their vertical industry knowledge to add additional value and enable Intacct to expand its reach into new markets.”

Before Intacct, Blair was president of Riveli Consulting, a boutique-consulting firm that helped clients optimize their services and sales business operations. Prior to that, he led global sales operations for Mercury Interactive, an $800 million IT software company now part of HP, where he designed and implemented cohesive worldwide sales business operations. Blair joined Mercury from DigitalThink Inc., a leader in custom eLearning courseware where he led a staff of 300 project managers, courseware designers and courseware developers with operations in India, Europe and the United States.

Blair’s executive career also includes positions at such notable companies as Clarify, Nortel Networks, Saratoga Systems, Compaq, Tandem and Digital Equipment Corporation. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing and Finance from California State University, Long Beach.
