New General Manager for DNS.BE
Philip Du Bois yesterday took up his position as General Manager of DNS.be. He takes over the job from Jo Van Gorp, who was appointed manager ad interim after the departure of Marc Van Wesemael in October 2009.

“Philip Du Bois was chosen to be the best candidate by the recruiting office Russell Reynolds as well as by the Board of Directors and the Strategic Committee”, explains Piet Spiessens, President of the Board of Directors. “It was particularly his experience in various fields, his fresh ideas on DNS.be, his fluent communication style and his experience in the ICT sector that convinced us.”

Philip Du Bois is 38 years old, studied for commercial engineer, and was active as Advisor in telecom matters at the Kabinet of Minister Van Quickenborne. Before that he also worked for Belgacom, Versatel, Telenet and Digital Equipment.

“The coming months and years are expected to be challenging for DNS.be viewing technical and commercial opportunities such as DNSsec and IPv6”, says Philip Du Bois. “The DNS.be team has the technical know-how and developed a firm structure of procedures and methods. I hope to be able to contribute to this strong entity and thus to provide a state-of-the-art service.”
