’s-Hertogenbosch, 9 November 2021 – The Supervisory Board of Business & Cloud Integrator Ctac N.V. (“Ctac”) (Euronext Amsterdam: CTAC) has appointed the current CFO, Pieter-Paul Saasen (46), as the company’s Chief Executive Officer effective 15 November 2021. He will succeed Henny Hilgerdenaar, who stepped down as CEO last month. Saasen has been a Ctac statutory director and CFO for the past two years. The Supervisory Board has now started the search for a new CFO.

Following the resignation of the previous CEO, the Supervisory Board has held exploratory talks with a number of internal and external stakeholders. From these talks and its own observations, the members of the supervisory board concluded that Pieter-Paul Saasen meets all the requirements set for the new Ctac CEO. “Pieter-Paul has the right drive to achieve the results we are looking for. He is also capable of combining business leadership with an eye for the human dimension. He has been a member of the board of directors for the past two years and is well aware of the challenges Ctac is facing, and the opportunities offered by the market. This means we can immediately press ahead with the refinement of our chosen strategy and with achieving our growth targets”, says Chairman of the Supervisory Board Harry Hendriks.

Pieter-Paul Saasen has had a career in accountancy and was Managing Partner at BDO before he joined Ctac in 2019. Saasen has been CFO at Ctac and responsible for finance & control and various staff functions since 1 October 2019. In the past period, he had already switched his focus more to operations and client relations. He was the driving force behind a number of recent acquisitions, including Oliver IT and Digisolve-Mijn ICT.

“Together we need to take a close look at Ctac’s place in our clients’ value chain. We have the talent, the expertise and the technology in house to add value, but we can display this to our clients even better than we are currently doing. I am looking forward to working with the team to turn the opportunities the market offers us into results, for our clients, our employees and our shareholders,” says Saasen.
