Collin Seyger took up his role as CFO at iO on 4 September. The agency is placing emphasis firmly on the future and the continuing professionalisation and expansion of the organisation. Given the ambitious goals of continuous growth and the intention to expand beyond the Benelux and Scandinavia, recruiting Collin Seyger is an important step in iO’s future plans.
More than 20 years of financial experience
With his extensive professional experience, Collin will be a driving force in iO. The CFO has more than 20 years of experience in finance (including AkzoNobel, Atlas Professionals and ilionx) and has been active in the private equity sector (s.a. HAL investments and Egeria) since 2015.
"For me, finance is an integral part of a company. I don't like departmental thinking; I prefer to think about processes," Collin says. "In my new role, I want to engage with the people, and take them on the incredible journey that iO has already been on for a while. I look forward to working with all iO colleagues to make this next step successful."
A decisive finance team that is ready for the future
iO has expanded massively over the past four years under the guidance of current CFO Geert Stoops. Stoops will remain on board within the finance team, leading future technical integration to continue to develop the iO success story.
"Geert Stoops has been a key force in our finance team for several years," says Pieter Janssens (CEO of iO). "He's brought us to where we are today, and we're very grateful to him for that."
