Ben Aelbrecht: “The Dutch team have delivered outstanding performance for many years under Berry’s leadership and I am really looking forward to working with new colleagues, partners and vendors to continue this legacy and kick on toward new achievements and objectives. I see many opportunities to further expand the services and solutions, and to increase Exclusive Networks’ influence and market success throughout the region. I would like to thank Berry on behalf of the whole Exclusive team for his many years of commitment and dedication, and wish him the very best for the future.”

Before joining Exclusive Networks, Ben worked in various management positions at Proximus, Cisco and others. The current period until the end of 2021 will be used by Berry van Waayenburg and Ben Aelbrecht to manage a smooth transition that ensures ongoing continuity and business-as-usual in the Netherlands from 1st January onwards.

Berry van Waayenburg: “I am confident that Ben will lead Exclusive Networks Netherlands with conviction and enjoy the support of a highly experienced and committed local team. It’s been a great 14 years, first as CEO of TechAccess and then the last 5 years as part of the global Exclusive family. But it is time for the business to take the next steps on the journey, for which I wish everyone great success. I would like to thank all partners and vendors for the pleasant cooperation and the trust they have put in Exclusive Networks Netherlands.”
