MERIGNAC, France - Jérôme Perrotte, 55, has recently been made Director of Development at Cortix, the market leader in France and Europe for Internet site creation. With 30 years experience in large international groups (Polycom, Peoplesoft), he has gained a real understanding of the issues surrounding new technologies. By creating this new post, Cortix will be able to use his knowledge to meet its objective of developing new business opportunities in the market place.

The Objectives of the Director of Development

Jérôme Perrotte is the first Director of Development at Cortix. His appointment by the French group based in Mérignac underlines its commitment to growth and expansion. The main objectives for Jérôme Perrotte will be to identify and develop new products and distribution channels, both in France and abroad. He will be responsible for all the company’s development plans, especially in the areas of partnership agreements or merger-acquisitions.

And his work has already begun to bear fruit! A first white-label partnership has just been agreed between Cortix and a multimedia communications agency which will provide a new and dynamic service for our Internet site operations.

Cortix, Strong Growth Potential

After a long career with large and mostly American international companies, Jérôme Perrotte is today looking forward to using his experience to help a company which operates on a human scale. It is also important for him to be involved at the very heart of the company’s strategic thinking in order to make a positive and effective contribution. And finally, at the present time of crisis, he is looking forward to taking up the challenge of achieving company growth: “Cortix has considerable potential, not only with the current target market of SMEs and microbusinesses, but also in other sectors. In a few years time, why shouldn’t we be dealing with larger organizations? Whatever happens, it is clear to me that the future of Cortix and that of the Internet in general will be based on providing more services, especially in e-commerce and advertising.”
