Haugen said in a prepared statement that while at Bain he had supported Unit4 management through several M&A transactions. The previous EVP in that spot was Stephen Sieber, hired in April 2014 after Unit4 created four new VP positions following its privatization by new owner, Advent International. Sieber became EVP and global sales officer in June 2015. Unit4 has two product lines: Unit4 Financials, formerly known as Coda, and Unit4 Business World, formerly Agresso.Last modified on Friday, 29 January 2016
