Press release below:
New Operations Manager for DNS BE
Louvain, 29th July. DNS BE has a new Operations Manager, Chris Peetermans, and that means that the direction team is almost complete again, except for one position. The combination of promoting in-house specialists and carefully selecting external managers enables DNS BE to face the challenges of the years ahead.
Chris Peetermans got his Master degrees in electronics, option computer engineering in 1992. After a career of more than 20 years with Belgacom, of which the last 10 years in various technical and commercial managerial positions, he decided to move to a different telecom company. For several years he combined his managerial position there with the position of ICT manager in a company of the diamond sector. Therefore Chris has loads of experience in setting up highly secured LAN/WAN networks. In the meantime he also obtained the Cisco CCNA and CCND certificates.
This is a new move in Chris’ career; since 1st July he is Operations Manager with DNS BE. He emphasizes on developing an even more professional organisation, with particular attention to quality, security and the availability of the network, without losing sight of the costs.
So DNS BE sees a creative and experienced ICT jack-of-all-trades enter the company.
Later this summer DNS BE will announce who will be the last member of the management team, the new marketing and communications manager. From then on, a boost will be given to DNS BE’s communications policy. DNS BE will indeed be launching a campaign during fall to better back up its 450 registrars.
