Peter Philippaerts appointed Operations Director at Ordina Belgium

On September 2, Peter Philippaerts joined Ordina Belgium as its Operations Director. Peter Philippaerts was previously General Director at Belfius Bank.

Apart from a few years, Peter has spent his entire career as a banker. He acquired over 10 years' experience there as a Sales Director, including during some difficult periods. He learned to maintain a balance between efficiency and employee satisfaction. He also carried out many large projects. Recently he set up a large operational department: a focal point for all customer contacts where innovation and customer focus are the driving force.

During his career, Peter learned to improve processes and to stimulate discussion. He enjoys working in a single team with colleagues.

"Peter Philippaerts joining the top management team at Ordina is entirely consistent with our strategy," says Franky Van Damme, Ordina CEO. "We deliberately concentrate on long-term relationships with our customers based on sound business and technological know-how, which needs to be turned into sustainable solutions. We are going to innovate together for the long-term."

"Someone like Peter will undoubtedly bring added value to our customers, partners and employees, due to his business and organizational experience with a strong focus on the employee," concludes Franky Van Damme.
