It has been my distinct pleasure to work closely with him throughout his career at CTG,” said Filip Gydé, CTG President and CEO. “On behalf of the entire organization, I extend our sincere thanks to Rénald for his many years of valuable contributions and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”

Successor Appointed

Bob Daelman succeeds Mr. Wauthier and assumes the Senior Vice President of European Operations position, effective immediately. He has over 30 years of technology and IT solutions and services experience, including over 20 years at CTG in increasingly responsible sales and leadership roles.

“Bob has been instrumental in executing our growth strategy in Belgium and the United Kingdom,” said Mr. Gydé. “His deep understanding of the IT services and solutions market, coupled with strong sales, operations, and leadership experience, positions him to lead the achievement of our European growth and profitability objectives.”

As Senior Vice President, Mr. Daelman assumes executive responsibility for the strategic and operational leadership of CTG’s European operations and will continue in his capacity as Managing Director of Belgium.
