Getronics appoints new group CEO


Dutch firm Getronics has appointed Nana Baffour as chairman and group CEO as it seeks to double in size to €1 billion turnover.

US/Brazilian entrepreneur Baffour is the majority shareholder of Bottega InvestCo, which bought Getronics – a business transformation solutions company – last month.

Former CEO Mark Cook has been appointed as vice chairman to the Getronics Group board of management. He will report directly to Baffour and play a more strategic role with a small number of senior clients.

“I would like to personally thank Mark for his contribution at Getronics and in his role as group CEO. Getronics has radically transformed over his tenure into a digital ready technology company and he, and his team, have made five key strategic acquisitions enabling this transformation,” said Baffour.

Cook said: “I am very excited about the future of Getronics Group by enabling and leveraging the power of our people, organisation and capabilities and I am proud to support Getronics on the next chapter of its journey.”

Paul Fox, who previously ran new business sales for Getronics UK as well as global business development activities, is the new UK CEO.

“Getronics is an exceptional services company, with great people at its core, who are obsessed with our customers and the ever-changing world of technology,” continued Baffour.

“We have entered a new and exciting chapter in our history and we plan to expand substantially by building on our strong track record and capabilities.

“Our renewed vision will be achieved through a firm focus on the relationships we have with customers and partners, as we seek to build on the business transformation capabilities we can offer them.”
