Satellic announces today that Bart De Sitter, currently Chief Technology Officer of Satellic, will take a new transverse leading role as Enterprise Architect within the company as of 1 April 2021. Oliver Sachs, will take over as Chief Technology Officer effective 1 April 2021.
Having served as Chief Technology Officer of Satellic for more than three years, Bart De Sitter could gain a 360-degree view of the entire business of the company. In doing so, he came to the conclusion that his knowledge, leading skills, expertise and passion would be an asset for specific strategic operational projects within the company. He therefore decided to hand over his mandate as CTO to dedicate himself to these vital projects for the company with the focus on customer centricity, at the heart of Satellic attention.
Bart De Sitter in a new strategic role as Enterprise Architect
As new Enterprise Architect, Bart will be responsible for end-to-end processes and applications for the current Satellic Tolling Platform and for future projects. He will be in charge of preparing the company for future challenges, assuring effectiveness, efficiency, agility, and continuity of complex business operations.
Taking the opportunity of a company-wide video conference, Bart thanked “Satellic for having given me this opportunity to work as CTO with such a dynamic and dedicated team. During my tenure as CTO, I discovered that my passion was also creativity which led to this decision of taking this new role. Being CTO has been a tremendous challenge for me and I am delighted to have the privilege to further contributing to the development of this company in my new role as Enterprise Architect.”
Oliver Sachs appointed CTO of Satellic
Currently Vice-President at T-Systems International Portfolio Unit Road Charging, Oliver Sachs demonstrated a history of working in the information technology and the services industry, he is skilled in IT Strategy, Management, Leadership, IT Sales, and Supply Management. Moreover, he is certainly no stranger to those who have some knowledge of the toll industry in Belgium and Europe. He indeed not only has a great deal of experience within the T-Systems Group, but he carried the Satellic project from its beginnings until the system went live in 2016. It is therefore a sort of a homecoming for the man for whom Satellic is a bit like his baby. We trust that Oliver will contribute to the expansion and development of the company in the years to come.
In a video message to the Satellic staff, Oliver stated that ”it is a real pleasure to come back to Belgium after having spent several years there on what was still only the Satellic project and to be able this time to fully appreciate the country without running from deadline to deadline.”
A strong Management Team to lead the company to a bright future
With a Management Team made of experienced professionals, Satellic is ready for the future challenges of its industry and for the soon completion of its customer-centricity programme.
During a virtual townhall, Elisabeth Verbrugge and Saverio Donati, respectively CEO and CFO of Satellic, thanked “Bart for his full commitment during our years together in the company and in particular in the company's Management Committee and we are delighted that he has agreed to stay at Satellic while giving a new turn to his career. And we are already looking forward to welcoming Oliver, whom we both know very well, to the Management Committee.“
Thomas Pferr, former CEO and CTO of Satellic and current Chairman of its Board also stressed that he “always considered Satellic to be one big family and I am glad to see an old face coming back home, and a colleague agilely accepting to stay for a new in-house challenge. I wish Bart and Oliver the best for their endeavours and good luck to both.”
