Flemish cybersecurity expert Spotit wants a U.S. department with 120 employees in three years

Flemish Cyber ​​Security Specialist Spotit has opened an office in North Carolina on the US East Coast. The specialty service provider has a turnover of மில்லியன் 25 million with 120 employees, mainly in Belgium. Spotit took eight years to do this, but in the United States it has to go fast. They want to create a department with 120 employees in three years. This is somewhat possible by current clients such as BekaertDeslee and UCB.

‘We have clients in Belgium with branches of many international Belgian companies or foreign companies,’ says CEO Jர்கrgen Vernist. ‘These customers are often active on the East Coast. We start in the United States at their request, but also at the request of our partners and staff. We want to get new American customers dealt with quickly. ‘

US Expansion is led by Sander Waspinder of Belgium, who has been working at Spot since 2016. ‘We want to bring the same mindset and corporate culture that brought us up in Belgium, but we want to do it with local talent to respond as much as possible to local needs and customs. Raleigh in North Carolina is the most attractive place for us. We are close to our customers and we can easily operate from Florida to New York. In addition, it is an advantage for the best universities in the region to recruit new local talents. The good local ecosystem of technology companies already exists, and Citrix may be one of the best examples. Apple will soon open its own campus with 3000 engineers. ‘
