CIO Guido Lemeire leaves SNCB – Careers

The CIO of SNCB and CEO of Ypto, Guido Lemeire, resigns after five years and is looking for a new challenge.

‘It was one of the most difficult decisions to make during my career’, writes Guido Lemeire on LinkedIn. ‘But today is my last day of work at Ypto and SNCB’. Lemeire is satisfied with the journey made in the past years: ‘One of the largest outsourcing contracts in Belgium, a complex transition at the application level, the transformation of IT into agile delivery with co-creation, growing the organization from CMMI level (Capability Maturity Model Integration, editor’s note) 0 to level 3, while ensuring the complete digitization of SNCB: here are some examples of interesting achievements.’

It is above all the forthcoming liberalization of the railways which has been of strategic importance for Guido Lemeire in order to be able to make the correct choices in a future ERP and at the level of the applications. This is how he put SNCB’s digital transformation fully on track for the next ten years. For several of his achievements and his clear vision, he was named CIO of the Year in 2020 by Data News.

When he arrived at Ypto in 2017, Lemeire could already be proud of a busy career. This is how he took on various functions at Telenet, where he worked for more than 9 years – halfway through a brief interlude at Scarlet. In 2011, he was appointed CIO at Mobile Vikings, after which he ended up via Harvey Nash at the former Belgacom. We then find him at Wordline Global for almost 3 years.

Guido Lemeire is now leaving with the feeling of accomplishment and formally thanks Giovanni Palmieri, Renaud Lorand and the management of SNCB for the trust and the opportunities he has received ‘to have been able to lead one of the most tremendous digital transformations’. Lemeire will now be looking for a new challenge. At SNCB, we are looking for a successor.
