Steven Robben is the new Operations Director at LACO since September 1, 2017. Hereby, the Belgian Business Intelligence (BI) specialist is responding to the rapidly increasing demand for BI projects in the Belgian market.

“We notice a high level of maturity with our customers regarding BI solutions. There is an abundance and an exponential growth of data. Clients realize that initiatives such as Data Analysis, Data Management, Data Visualization are not nice-to-have but a must-have if they want to be leaders within the digital world,” says Fabrice Deprez, Managing Director at LACO.

LACO’s growth confirms this trend. “We are getting more and more complex questions from our customers. In addition, they are also looking more for local, Belgian players with a personal and focused approach. This is our differentiator”, Fabrice said.

In this regard, top profile Steven Robben with over 20 years of experience in ICT Consultancy and BI was taken on board. Steven comes from Keyrus where he has been part of the management team since 2008 and has taken up the role of COO since 2010. Prior to that he was active at EY Consulting and Capgemini.

As a member of the LACO management team, Steven will coordinate the various practices at both strategic and daily operational level. This includes the further development of the services offered to customers as well as the Engagement and Delivery. As Operations Director, he is also responsible for LACO’s 100 plus BI consultants.

In his new position, Steven is assisted by Practice Leaders and their Management & Innovation Teams. “To support our customers in this growing need and to provide them with the necessary expertise, and on the other hand, to provide our consultants with the necessary means, LACO is intensively recruiting”, explains Fabrice.
