London, 19 June 2018 - Jeroen van Erven has been appointed the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of SD Worx Group. His international experience and the knowledge he gained during the many acquisitions he supervised make him well-suited to the position. He is a member of the Executive Committee and reports directly to CEO Steven Van Hoorebeke.
Jeroen van Erven: "First and foremost, I want to take the time to get to know the company in detail and speak with the different parties. That includes colleagues working in Finance and business, and the customers. The dynamism currently evident in the payroll and HR industry is what appeals to me. I specifically mean the sheer volume of data available and the ways that we might utilise artificial intelligence and other new technologies in our business. We need to continue responding to the latest trends and think about how we can provide services with added value, so that HR managers can become genuine strategic business partners. The role of Finance is to ensure that the necessary financial resources are available to realise our ambitions. I want to play an active role in shaping our international growth strategy and ensuring that our sights remain firmly set on digitalisation."
Jeroen van Erven (52) studied economics in Groningen, Netherlands, and earned an MBA at Columbia University in New York. He started his career in 1992
as an audit manager at BDO in New York and Mexico. Between 1996 and 2001, he was the Controller and CFO North America for the listed real estate investor
CORIO. In 2001, he joined Mastercard International, where he held various positions in New York, Brussels, Paris, Miami and Singapore. Jeroen is married
and has three children.
Jeroen will succeed Hector Vermeersch, who has been appointed CFO at SD Worx Holding. Since the acquisition of VIO Interim last year, the holding company has had a flexible work entity in addition to the SD Worx Group. Hector will ensure that the strategy for both entities can be carried out and will look at opportunities to facilitate further growth. As a representative of the holding company, Hector will also continue to maintain and further develop the company's relationships with financial institutions. Hector reports to Filip Dierckx, the Chairman of the Board of Directors.
