Computacenter goes international with two new managers

Zaventem, September 18 - IT service provider Computacenter targets significant growth with the recruitment of Bob Jarvis and Patrick Goris

With the appointment of Bob Jarvis as Director of Solutions and Patrick Goris as Client Director, Computacenter is fully enabling the international Group model on behalf of its customers.

Over the past two years Computacenter Belgium has gone through a major investment programme and business transformation. The company is now fully integrated within the Computacenter Group, which also has sites in the UK, France, Germany and Switzerland. This means the strong relationships that the local team have with many Belgian customers can be significantly enhanced through access to the full portfolio and capability of the Group.

To help the team unlock this potential on behalf of Computacenter’s customers, Bob Jarvis has been brought in from the UK to Zaventem, to take on the role of Director of Solutions. “I’ve been working at Computacenter for 9 years now, of which I spent the last 5 as head of our consulting teams across the UK, France, and recently Belgium,” says Bob Jarvis, Director of Solutions at Computacenter. “I see a lot of opportunities in Belgium to become more strategic with our customers by leveraging the power of the Group. I’m now 100% focussed on Belgium and it’s my ambition to rapidly accelerate our professional services and solutions business through helping the team understand the full portfolio of what we can do for our customers. I also have the benefit of an extensive network across the Group and can help our Belgium customers take advantage of best practice from successful engagements with our customers in other countries. If, for example, one of our customers is looking at Digital Workplace or Hybrid Cloud transformation, I can immediately tap into our experience of delivering successful projects in France, Germany or the UK. This is exactly one of the strengths of the group model.”

As Client Director, Patrick Goris will put the international strengths into practice. “A couple of months ago I made the transition to Computacenter, after working 10 years at Microsoft. Of my 30-year career I spent 20 years in sales at different organisations, and I want to use that experience to help Computacenter grow,” says Patrick Goris, Client Director at Computacenter. “At Microsoft I became familiar with translating corporate strategies, processes and resources to the local context. This will definitely be useful now at Computacenter. Many of our customers are international players with their headquarters in Belgium and only with the power of the Group can you serve them on a worldwide level.”

Jurgen Strijkers, Country Unit Director at Computacenter, is delighted to be able to extend his team with the experienced Bob Jarvis and Patrick Goris: “Since becoming part of the Computacenter Group, I notice how much stronger we are. We are still a local Belgian company focused on our customers, but we now also have the power of a multinational. Small enough to care about the companies we work with, and large enough to help them face all of their challenges. I am looking forward to working with Bob, Patrick and the rest of the management team to continue our growth.”
