Patrik Vandewalle, former CEO of Econocom Group, has taken a 30% share in the capital of Skelia Sarl through capital increase. The Skelia board has appointed Patrik as its new CEO.

“Skelia extends enterprises with dedicated, skilled resources in near-shore locations. Customer expectations and continually increasing competition on a world-wide scale are forcing industry to rethink business strategies, alliances, partnerships, and resulting everyday operation. The smarter of these players will elect to outsource large pieces of their core businesses to superior firms and then recombine the pieces imaginatively to suit specific opportunities – thus creating a modular or plug-and-play capability that is both strong and flexible and that extends their original boundaries.

I am both delighted and excited to develop Skelia as leading player in nearshore operations for Benelux companies.”, says Patrik Vandewalle

Skelia – Unique Business Model

Skelia extends enterprises with dedicated, skilled resources in near-shore locations. Skelia enables its customers to achieve major cost efficiencies, by providing

    • Access to low-cost, skilled manpower capacity
    • Client’s full control through dedicated non-shared resource teams
    • Access to top-class competencies and service levels
    • Support by Skelia for all related areas (building, facilities, ICT, people development, etc.)
The Skelia business model is unique in the sense that Skelia works with dedicated teams per client, that it applies a transparent “cost+” pricing mode, and enables its clients to take-over their Skelia team in a fully-owned nearshore legal entity.

Skelia offers an unprecedented best-of-breed business model, balancing low cost, resource availability, scalability, control, quality and security.

Skelia’s remote services are hosted in Service Centres and decided to set-up its first Ukrainian Service Centre in Lviv, capital of Western-Ukraine.
