Marc De Groote is the new Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of the Belgian ICT services provider NRB. He succeeds Jean-François Michotte in this role, who will now focus on the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO).
NRB, the number 3 ICT-service provider in Belgium, signs a major agreement with IBM, to offer its customers IBM’s most advanced technologies for highly automated and intelligent hybrid cloud services.
The NRB Group achieved a turnover of € 317 million in the 2016 financial year. This means a 29% increase compared to the 2015 turnover of € 246 million. The Belgian ICT group’s Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) amounted to € 17.6 million or 5.57% of its revenues. The turnover increase is mainly attributable to the takeover of Trasys in October 2015.
NRB and Getronics have been granted a 4-year Workspace Service contract with two one-year extensions by Sibelga which is redesigning its IT architecture to convert to a partially outsourced silo model. This new rationalisation strategy is also aimed at updating the work environment concept with a focus on mobility to enhance ergonomics and increase user comfort.
