22 March 2018

Antwerp, 22 March 2018 – Dr. Mark Eger will join SD Worx on April 9th as Vice-President of SD Worx Germany. Mark is joining SD Worx from Tata Consultancy Services, where he was Head of Business Process Services in Switzerland. Although his background is mainly in finance, he is also very familiar with HR, as in previous positions with the insurer Allianz and consultancy firm KPMG, he set up a number of shared-service environments for finance, HR and operations. Dr. Mark Eger will be a member of the SD Worx Group Executive Committee and report directly to CEO Steven Van Hoorebeke

Dr. Mark Eger: "Ensuring continuity for our company and customers is crucial. During my first hundred days, I want to take the time to get better acquainted with SD Worx and its customers. I will personally visit our thirteen offices in Germany in order to get to know our 750 German employees. Customer-centricity is one of the strategic pillars to become the most desired brand in our sector by 2021. I want to put that firmly into practice by quickly building a relationship of trust with our customers. By listening to what they expect from us and jointly discussing the trends and opportunities in our sector, we can provide them with even better help. Close ties with our customers are crucial, in my view, and will automatically lead to a stronger market share."

Clear vision on digital leadership

"The payroll and HR sector is undergoing major changes, and that is something that attracts me. SD Worx has a clear vision of how we can help our customers even better through digitalisation, and of the growth that this can generate. We are currently experimenting with RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and arranging for certain repetitive administrative tasks in the payroll process to be carried out by smart software. Of course, people remain central to everything we do – after all, this is a people business. But the opportunities offered by digitalisation are enormous," adds Dr. Mark Eger.
Dr. Mark Eger replaces Jean-Luc Barbier, who is now dedicating himself to managing SD Worx Global Solutions – the international division in which SD Worx sees huge future opportunities for growth. Today, SD Worx Group is number 2 in Europe and number 5 in the world, and the company wishes to strengthen that position even further. In order to ensure continuity and a smooth transfer, Jean-Luc Barbier will continue to sit on the Supervisory Board of SD Worx Germany. 

Dr. Mark Eger (51) was born in Tehran (Iran) and has lived in Africa, Asia, Europe and the USA. He is married and has two children.
