Marc Rottiers

“As we are growing, our operations outside the ‘mature’ countries are getting more and more complex. On one hand, we as a Finance-Organization have to make sure that we earn our Freedom-To-Operate every day, and making sure that we are compliant with all rules in all countries, how complex and different they are from our ‘home’; and on the other hand we have to think how we can accelerate growth in a ‘smart’ way, and bringing value where we as a Finance Team are best placed to balance cash, credit, commodity, currency and taxes with each other.

On a different point, as often, when companies are growing so quickly, processes, procedures, systems and tools have been lagging behind…. As such, on a short term, there is room for improvement, so we can handle the further growth in a smarter way.”

Marc Rottiers is based out of Portes-Lès-Valence and supervises our Global Financial Operations and the EMEA Legal function.

Marc has over 25 years of experience in various key positions throughout the industry. Over his long career, Marc has served in multiple strategic finance leadership roles committed to transformation, trusted partnership with industry professionals, and sustainable growth. Marc thrives in a multi-cultural work environment in close collaboration with people from many different countries.

Marc has a Master’s Degree in Economics, Accounting and Controlling from different universities in Belgium and speaks French, English and Dutch fluently.
