bpostgroup has announced several new executive leadership appointments as part of its ambition to strengthen its market position in the parcel-size logistics market in Belgium and abroad.
From February 1, Philippe Dartienne will return to his role as CFO while Frank Croket will take on the position of chief digital officer. A new role of chief commercial officer has also been created and the search for a suitable candidate has begun.
Chris Peeters, CEO bpostgroup, “Digitalization, customer centricity and the strengthening of the leadership structure, with established leaders in their area of expertise, are key enablers to put bpostgroup in pole position to accelerate our transformation and realize our ambition. We will also continue to foster a culture of compliance to ensure ethical and responsible business practices.”
Dartienne will take on the Group CFO function again, with ad interim CFO Koen Aelterman becoming CFO for the Belgian business unit. Croket’s role as chief digital officer will replace the current chief technology officer role, previously held by James Edge.
Peeters explained, “With Frank, I am convinced we have the right person to take us to the next level with our digital transformation. His remit will encompass the data management, digital transformation and IT operations activities.”
Edge will take on the role of CEO Crossborder Global with responsibility for both North America and Eurasia, reporting to the group CEO. The Crossborder business includes Landmark Global, Apple Express, FDM and IMX. The Group CEO is also given the temporarily responsibility of global fulfillment.
