Steve Fearon | President, Northern Europe

President, Northern Europe

Leading the Northern Europe region for Forterro, Steve Fearon is responsible for operations and go-to-market activities focused on our Jeeves, Orderwise, 123Insight and Fortee products. These serve more than 2,000 small and mid-sized businesses across the Nordics, Benelux, UK and Ireland. 
He is responsible for developing and executing the strategic, operational and financial plans that drive the profitability and growth of the products we sell in the Northern Europe area. He oversees the Forterro functions in the local geographies, including Sales, Marketing, Product Management, R&D and Professional Services.


Steve joined Forterro having held various senior roles in Oracle and Capita. He spent 28 years at Oracle, where latterly he led their Applications for Mid Size Enterprises business in Europe. At Capita, he ran two software business divisions focused on the healthcare sector. 

He is a strong believer that organisations in the industrial mid-market are the lifeblood of our economy and communities. The current trend of the return of local manufacturing and supply chains is helping fuel their growth. The ‘consumerisation of IT’ is enabling these companies to respond to such trends faster, and at an affordable cost of ownership to facilitate top-line growth and expansion. Digital transformation is at the heart of this enablement, but has to be done with demonstrable and short-term ROI.

Steve is a graduate from Queen’s University, Belfast – and holds executive education from IESE in Barcelona, Ross School of Business in Michigan and London Business School.
