Phillip Vandervoort (Proximus) appointed as Chairman of the Supervisory Board TICC

The IT Channel Company (TICC) appoints Phillip Vandervoort as the Chairman of the Supervisory Board. With the appointment of Vandervoort (55), TICC, value-added distributor of ICT solutions for the SME segment, expects to take the company to a new growth level.

In addition to his position as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of TICC, Vandervoort is the Chief Consumer Market Officer for Proximus (formerly Belgacom), one of the largest telecom and ICT providers in Belgium. He previously gained extensive experience as Microsoft’s General Manager. ‘Vandervoort’s international experience with Microsoft and his broad range of knowledge relating to cloud applications inspires our trust to have found an eminently suitable candidate as an independent and advisory Chairman,’ says Louis Rustenhoven, Chairman of the Executive Board of The IT Channel Company.

‘We see a clear trend emerging that companies are starting to use cloud services to anticipate quickly changing business models. The IT needs of SMEs in particular are expanding at a fast pace. Service providers need help to cash in on this development,’ says Vandervoort.

The new Chairman sees TICC as a powerful potential international player in this market evolution. ‘TICC proved to have sufficient in-house dynamics to achieve further short-term growth. I am looking forward to becoming a powerful sparring partner to TICC’s shareholders and management and help realise this ambition'.
