CISO professional

This week spotit welcomes Jo Deblaere as the new chairman of the Advisory Board. Spotit is looking forward to the collaboration and relies on his many years of experience and expertise as Chief Operating Officer in an exciting world of fast-growing companies.


After annual growth in Belgium, spotit is now targeting the North American market. The Advisory Board, soon headed by Jo Deblaere, will support spotit in further developing their managed services.


Spotit detects a lot of common ground with Jo’s career and personal interests. Jo is a real one-company man who started at Accenture 38 years ago, as a young guy. Since then, he has successfully completed many projects. From outsourcing to consultancy, from America to Japan. He knows the world like the back of his hand and always devoted himself to every new challenge along the way. He recently announced his retirement, but is not yet ready to completely put down the work.


Starting on February 15, Jo will use his expertise as chairman of the Advisory Board of spotit. An organization that fits right up his alley. ‘I have travelled the world for my job. Right now, I long to work with a Belgian team, which gradually wants to spread their wings across the borders. Spotit is an interesting company and has all the necessary ingredients for further success. I’m charmed by their focus and the owners’ clear vision of the future.’


Jürgen Verniest, CEO, adds: ‘We’re looking forward to the collaboration. Over the years, Jo has helped many leading-edge companies to grow sustainably, both within Belgium and abroad. He has, just like us, a passion for digitalization and broadening state-of-the-art services. Spotit would like to offer their managed services to our international customers the coming year, starting in the USA.’


Jo detects three important corner stones for success at spotit. ‘Spotit uses the right platform, they have a fresh approach to further develop their business based on an honest assessment and two-way communication with the customer, and they understand the war for talent. Their approach to educating people through the spotit Academy and personal development plans delivers great results. I look forward to helping them accelerate even more.’
