A General Manager chosen for DIGI Belgium and there is room for you too!

Brussels - The ball is in the court, Jeroen Degadt will become the General Manager of telecom operator DIGI Belgium. After previous successful launches in Romania, Italy, Spain and Portugal, Jeroen will lead the Belgian expansion. And he could use some help with that. In the coming months, there will be more than 100 vacancies at DIGI Belgium. All the more reason to get inside Jeroen's head. 

Whether his hair will be right for the interview. And that he will go to the hairdresser especially for the photos. No, Jeroen Degadt is not your average General Manager. Airy style, lots of humor but to-the-point and extremely driven. "DIGI Group is anything but a tie company. Those days are really over now," Jeroen says amused. "DIGI Belgium will be the great changemaker in the telecom market, why can't we try to be the same as an employer?"

"Who doesn't want to build the new telecom operator? A unique opportunity."

Jeroen Degadt has plenty of experience with the status quo, having worked in the telecom sector for more than 18 years. "Those were absolutely fascinating and instructive times, especially for a newly graduated engineer with a lot of entrepreneurial drive. I've also always been passionate about how technology and innovation can be transformed into services and products. But I saw and felt the status quo of our industry. Everyone is mostly looking at what everyone else is doing, so little is actually changing. Especially at the price level. If we look at the studies, we see that Belgians pay way too much compared to neighboring countries. DIGI Group and Citymesh Group offered me the opportunity and a first plan to really turn it all on its head for once."

"Belgians have been overpaying for their telecom packages for years."

"The opportunity to build a new telecom operator from scratch, you don't get that every day of course. Doing business on a large scale and then again with a lot of impact on people and society. By simply entering the market with fair prices, for example, coupled with a fair offer. Money for value, value for money. That is also one of our great strengths, we can really start from scratch, supported by the experience and knowledge of DIGI Group. In this way we create an offer adapted to the needs of the modern Belgian consumer, with prices adapted to European standards. An offer that consumers continue to consciously choose, not because they are stuck with a phone number, email address or tying."

"An offer tailored to the needs of the modern Belgian consumer, but with prices adapted to European standards."


‍"But I can't do that alone, of course, especially since we are going to offer television and Internet in addition to mobile telephony. Already there are a lot of talented minds walking around here, but the start is going fast. We are in the recruitment phase. Scouring the market for engineers of all kinds, technicians, network specialists, and so on. But equally marketers, project managers and sales profiles. We expect to open more than 100 vacancies in the coming months, so all to our website surf please (laughs)."


"You know, they don't have to be classic telecoms people, we are looking both inside and outside the sector. A breath of fresh air in our sector also requires new ways of thinking, so we open our doors to daredevils, doers and thinkers. People with a critical view, game changers, creatives and entrepreneurs. Those who see the ones and zeros a little differently, those who know that standing still is going backwards. Couldn't be otherwise when you look at the exciting challenges ahead. And promise, everyone gets to lay their hair the way they want (wink)."‍


"We are looking for daredevils, doers and thinkers. For those who want to fight the status quo."

Telecom operator DIGI wants to enter the market with "prices never seen before in Belgium." That is what DIGI Belgium's top executive, Jeroen Degadt, said Thursday at the official opening of its new headquarters in Brussels. DIGI Belgium is a joint venture between Belgium's Citymesh, which offers telecom services to companies, and Romanian telecom group DIGI, which already operates in four European countries (in addition to Romania, Spain, Portugal and Italy) with a total of 24 million customers. Next summer, the operator will launch its offer in which it aims to "combine fair prices with a reliable network and quality customer service."
