Regulation Made Simple

Announcement regarding the appointment of a new CEO for Cullen International


To be the leading provider of regulatory intelligence for a digital world” is Cullen International’s aim for the future. The board members and reference shareholders have had several discussions on the future of Cullen International and how we will create value for all stakeholders, today and tomorrow. Based on these discussions, the Board decided to restructure the organization.

These discussions have come at a pivotal time for Valerie Willems, our Managing Director for the last ten years and team member for the last twenty one years and she has chosen to leave the company to pursue new interests. We have selected Bruno Segers, an experienced board leader and contributor and operational management professional, to act as CEO for an interim period while the board decides on a permanent candidate for the role.We are very grateful for Valerie’s contribution over the years, first in helping to shape the services, then in helping to shape the company into what it is today, and for her hard work, dedication and loyalty. I am sure that you will join me in wishing her the very best for the future.

Bruno, a Belgian national, has held national and international management positions within global technology companies such as Digital, Oracle, Lotus, IBM and Microsoft. For several years he led RealDolmen, an ICT services integrator listed on the Brussels Stock Exchange, and was from the start a board member at iMinds, the independent digital research and innovation institute of the Flemish Government.

Valerie and Bruno will work together in the coming period to ensure a smooth transition to new leadership for the company.

Chair of the Board of Directors
