Montreal-based corporate sustainability management software company Novisto announced that it is expanding its business and market development efforts in the UK and has hired Gence Emek to lead the initiative as UK Regional Director.

Founded in 2019, Novisto is an end-to-end enterprise software focused on corporate sustainability management, aiming to enable companies to leverage the power of automation to collect and consolidate their sustainability data, improve their reporting, and gain insights for better decision making and value creation. This announcement follows the completion of a series A funding round last year to fund the growth of the company’s engineering and product teams as well as its expansion beyond the North American market.

Since the financing, Novisto has more than doubled its headcount and secured major corporate clients across Europe and North America. In addition, Novisto has expanded its target market to include private capital management firms, helping them better manage their ESG data collection and reporting.

Gence Emek has helped grow multiple B2B SaaS companies and teams in new and emerging territories in EMEA, including ecosio and MuleSoft, a Salesforce company. Prior to joining Novisto, Emek founded and served as CEO of sustainability app FuturePresent, working to help organizations to maximize sustainability performance for stakeholders.

Charles Assaf, CEO of Novisto, said:

“The UK and Europe are well-known global leaders when it comes to sustainable finance and corporate ESG integration. We feel ready to bring our unique offering to companies and investors who intimately understand the challenges around ESG data and reporting. Gence’s background in enterprise software and drive to guide companies to a more responsible future make him the perfect fit to lead our expansion efforts in the UK.”

Gence Emek, UK Regional Director of Novisto, added:

“Novisto has already built an impressive reputation in the UK, and I look forward to deepening our relationships and partnerships with prospective customers on this side of the pond.”
