Christophe Van de Weyer appointed as CEO of Telesign

Holding a master’s degree in Commercial Engineering (KU Leuven), Christophe Van de Weyer joined the Proximus Group in July 2020 after a career of almost 20 years at Bain & Company. He took on the role of Chief Operating Officer within the Enterprise Business Unit, steering the Enterprise strategy and ensuring commercial, operational and customer excellence. In 2021, he was assigned the additional responsibility of Managing Director of Proximus’ IT affiliates across the Benelux, with the purpose to accelerate commercial traction, drive transformation and realize intra-Group synergies.

In his new role, Mr. Van de Weyer will lead the Digital Identity (DI) activities of the Group and guide Telesign and its employees at a pivotal moment in the company’s history. Telesign is one of the global leaders in DI and well positioned to capture further growth. Furthermore, the recently announced acquisition of the global digital communications (CPaaS) player Route Mobile by Proximus Group opens new perspectives for Telesign to further reinforce its product offering and extend its geographic customer reach, while benefiting from substantial synergies. As one of two strong and highly complementary global assets, Telesign occupies a central place in the international growth strategy of the Group for the years to come.

Joe Burton, Telesign’s current CEO, has decided to leave the Proximus Group. Mr. Burton was appointed as CEO of Telesign in 2021, after a successful career in the tech industry. Over the past years, he has played an important role in the execution of Telesign’s strategy, delivering strong commercial results and consistently high revenue and direct margin growth, while preparing the company for the future.
