Peter Mous will start work as CEO of Centric effective July 1st, 2022, succeeding Johan Taams. Mous, currently a non-executive board member of Centric (one-tier board), has extensive experience as a director and consultant at IBM, Ortec Data Science and ICT-Office, among others. Centric's board is seeking the advice of the Works Council on this matter.
Taams and CFO Patrick Rosengarten have different views on the policy to be pursued than the other three Centric board members. For this reason, both directors are leaving. They are doing so by mutual agreement and will carefully hand over their tasks.
Rosengarten will remain in active office until October 1st, 2022. Announcement of Rosengarten's succession as CFO will follow shortly. Centric's board appreciates the dedication and commitment of Taams and Rosengarten.
In addition to Mous, chairman Louis Luijten and Aike Schoots are board members. Centric has had new governance since the beginning of last year. Since then the shareholder has not been a director or commissioner of Centric. Centric is a solid company employing 3,700 enthusiastic professionals.
Mous continues Centric's strategy of operating close to customers and, as a guiding partner, supports customers ever more intensively on the road to success. Centric's extensive knowledge of the market, its technological expertise and its insight into developments in various sectors put it in a unique position to do so. Mous: "We want to further expand this position by serving even more customers, both in the Netherlands and in the European countries where we are already active".
Centric differentiates itself from traditional IT suppliers and administrative service providers by linking in-depth IT knowledge to years of experience with industry-specific processes in the government, supply chain and financial sectors. This distinctiveness is reflected in Centric's four main activities: Software Solutions, IT Outsourcing, Business Process Outsourcing and Staffing Services.
In addition, Centric invests intensively in: People, Cloud, Big Data/Artificial Intelligence and Security. Centric offers customers qualified and enthusiastic professionals, effective technological solutions and high-quality IT and administrative services. Mous: "This is how we ensure that organizations can fully focus on their core business, work more efficiently and perform better.”
