Leaseweb Names Pieter Lacroix as Managing Director for Netherlands

Leaseweb has announced that Pieter Lacroix has been appointed Managing Director Netherlands. In this role, Lacroix will oversee Leaseweb’s operations in the Netherlands and focus on developing the company’s cloud offering.

Lacroix brings more than 25 years of experience in the technology sector to his new role. After beginning his career in telecommunications, Lacroix moved into cybersecurity where he spent over a decade at Sophos, ultimately as Managing Director for the Benelux region. Most recently, Lacroix was responsible for overseeing growth strategy, business development, and operations as General Manager at cloud solutions provider, Codit.

With his extensive experience and qualifications, including a dual Executive MBA degree from TIAS Business School and Bradford University (UK), Lacroix will be well poised to oversee growth and profitability for Leaseweb Netherlands. Lacroix will be responsible for a team of 150 professionals and manage all operations from sales to delivery and customer care.

“It’s an extremely exciting time to be joining Leaseweb,” commented Lacroix. “Just this year the company rebranded from a hosting provider to a cloud provider and, as a member of Gaia-X AISBL (the European Association for Data and Cloud), Leaseweb is helping define the future of cloud on a global level. As cloud adoption continues to accelerate, I am incredibly excited to be a part of the Leaseweb team and assist organizations looking to bolster their IT environments”.

Con Zwinkels, CEO at Leaseweb Global, said: “Leaseweb was founded and is currently headquartered in the Netherlands, and therefore, the Netherlands is at the heart of everything we do. It was incredibly important to us that the right person was selected to head up the Dutch entity, and Pieter’s extensive experience will be an asset for the company moving forward. He has a well-established career in the technology sector, as well as a proven track record of excellent leadership and sales abilities. We are delighted to have him on board and look forward to the continued success of Leaseweb in the Netherlands”.
