Martine Tempels to leave Telenet

Martine Tempels, executive VP at Telenet Business, has decided to leave the company after 12 years.

She has chosen to take a new step in her professional career and wants to use her expertise in IT and telecom outside Telenet.

Commenting on her departure, John Porter, CEO of Telenet, said: “It gives me great regret to see Martine leaving Telenet. Martine has expanded the business activities of Telenet and made them into an indispensable part of our strategy. Together with her team, she has made a structural contribution to Telenet’s growth. Thanks to the acquisitions of Hostbasket, C-Cure, BASE Business, and Nextel, she was able to expand the service portfolio of Telenet Business, thereby putting our B2B department very clearly on the Belgian map. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all her efforts and commitment. At the same time, I remain charmed by Martine’s commitment to promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) courses and her unbridled dedication to CoderDojo. This mix of professionalism, coupled with authentic engagement, makes her an inspiring personality. Martine was ICT woman of the year in 2012. And, in my opinion, that’s what she still is!

“I wish her all the best with her new plans”.

Tempels, who was also a member of the senior leadership team at Telenet, will remain in her position until a successor has been found and is also prepared to help train the new person who will be responsible for Telenet Business.

After that period, and at the request of Telenet, she will continue to provide support for several ongoing projects until she takes a new step in her career.
