Proximus intends to integrate its B2B IT activities into a dedicated affiliate to strengthen its IT leadership position in the Benelux market

Proximus intends to adapt its organization and way of working to build further on its leadership and capture future profitable growth in the IT and Telco business for enterprises. Therefore, the company has presented a plan to the social partners to transfer the Proximus SA B2B activities in IT to its affiliate PICT nbsp;SA (Proximus ICT) and pursue its transformation into an end-to-end IT integrator leveraging its strong Benelux footprint.

Six months ago, Proximus launched the Proximus NXT brand, showing its ambition to tackle the rapid innovation and changing customer needs in the Benelux Enterprise Market. Today, the company intends to take this transformation one step further, with a two-fold ambition: on the one hand, Proximus aims to sustain its strong footprint in the Enterprise telecom market through growth in Fiber, 5G and IoT. On the other hand, it has the ambition to further strengthen its IT activities by bringing state-of-the-art services to its Benelux customers and further leveraging its already leading role in domains like workspace, cloud, sovereign cloud, security & AI.

In order to meet these priorities and challenges in the most efficient way possible, the B2B activities of Proximus in IT would be transferred to the existing affiliate PICT SA and merged with the existing teams. This would allow for a clearer focus on the particularities of the IT business, develop an own B2B IT identity and bring it closer to the ecosystem of Proximus' affiliates and partners. Anne-Sophie Lotgering, currently Enterprise Market Lead of Proximus, would take up the challenge of leading this entity. The B2B Telco activities would remain in Proximus SA, leveraging Proximus' core strengths, and would be led by Renaud Tilmans, Customer Operations Lead of Proximus.

The plan, which would imply the transfer of around 350-400 employees working in the Enterprise Business Unit of Proximus SA to PICT SA as of July 1st 2024, has been presented to the social partners and colleagues involved have been informed. Proximus will now leave the time to an open and constructive social dialogue, with the aim to come back with more information in the course of April and the intention to implement the new structure as of the second half of this year.
