Top infrastructure group Besix names new Deputy CEO

Besix, a leading Belgian infrastructure group with a major presence in the Middle East, has appointed Pierre Sironval as its new Deputy CEO with immediate effect replacing Rik Vandenberghe, who will take on an advisory role and continue to sit on the company's board.

A civil engineer architect, Sironval has worked for Besix Group since the beginning of his career in 1995. He has carried out outstanding projects on three continents before being appointed Head of Besix Group in the Middle East in 2011, then COO for all the group's activities worldwide in 2018.

Lauding the appointment, Johan Beerlandt, the board's executive chairman, said: 'Sironval has spent his entire career within Besix Group, has risen through the ranks and is an outstanding example of our corporate culture of excellence.'

'His great human and professional qualities, as demonstrated when he was head of our Middle East subsidiary and then as COO, will make him an excellent CEO,' he stated.

Beerlandt also commended Vandenberghe for all his efforts in taking the company to greater heights.

Vandenberghe, who succeeded him as the CEO in 2017 had successfully managed the transition. 'In particular, he has brought more rigour to all the company's processes,' he stated.

'Vandenberghe, together with the entire group management, will help to ensure a smooth transition in the coming months and will maintain specific responsibilities as advisor,' he added.
