About this opportunity

Until now the Belgian cluster was part of the Benelux organization, to get more focus on the Belgian activities it was decided to make this a separate organization with its own MD.

 

Your role as an interim manager is to eventually merge these various industries and activities and make this one entity. The broad outlines are outlined high level, as interim manager you will analyze all companies and entities to then present a plan of action to the Benelux management and then implement it.

It is expected that this change trajectory will be completed by 31/12/2024 and that the predetermined KPIs (higher EBITDA, increase % of revenue from sales of services, higher cash conversion ratio) will then be achieved.
