Delémont, 28/04/2017. In a rapidly-changing market, you have to ask yourself the right questions and build a long-term strategy to anticipate future challenges. dbi offers services based on innovative solutions thanks to the cutting-edge skills of its expert team. These kinds of skills are acquired, built up and kept in place through experience, but equally through company commitment. One of the challenges for dbi services is to recognise trends in technology early enough to allow its experts to keep pace constantly with market expectations. Increasing its visibility is another challenge that dbi services likewise wishes to take on, through more personalised representation and more finely tuned sales activity. Company strategy and sales must be considered as two tasks and functions – Chairman of the Board and Chief Sales Officer – that current dbi services CEO Yann Neuhaus has decided to see through.
“The management of dbi services has thought long and hard about this decision. To tell the truth, we have been preparing for 2 years now. We have just been waiting for dbi services to reach sufficient maturity. Now, this restructuring makes perfect sense. I’m really enthusiastic about taking on the new responsibilities I have been entrusted with, because the future of dbi services is something I really care about”, says Yann Neuhaus. Current Chief Operations Officer (COO) David Hueber will take over as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Energetic, skilled and good at listening to colleagues, he will be able to hold course just as well as his predecessor. “His technical expertise, his interpersonal skills, his great ability to explain things simply, and his natural leadership will make him a superb CEO”, says Yann Neuhaus.
As far as figures go, 2016 was a highly successful year for dbi services. Its gross turnover came in at 8.44 million Swiss francs, an increase of 33% on 2015 figures. This growth is principally due to development of facilities management contract sales (+35%) and consultancy services (+29%). Staff numbers are following suit, with 51 members in the dbi services team at the close of 2016 and plans for further expansion in the first quarter of 2017.
This general expansion is partly explained by strong development of the Zurich branch, which has been able to carve itself a place in a very competitive market. And in addition, new partnerships with OpenText eDOCS, Cloudera and Attunity have boosted the services offered by the software company.
“We are offering more cutting-edge services now than ever before. Whether responding to requirements for document management systems, Big Data and Business Intelligence platforms, or simply data access, we offer our customers solutions by having qualified experts who can put them in place.” So says David Hueber, new CEO of dbi services.
