Esker grows Benelux network from Flanders-based head office

Headquartered in Lyon (France), Esker is a global cloud platform that supports businesses by automating financial and administrative business processes. It has recently announced the opening of a new office in Belgium within its network for the Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg). The expansion is part of Esker’s “glocal” strategy: combining an international vision with strong local anchorage. Esker Benelux’s head office is located in Ghent, Flanders.

"Dynamic region"

Four years after opening its “youngest” office in Hong Kong, Esker is strengthening its presence in Europe with a new office in Belgium, the country of which Flanders is the northern region. This is “an area with strong growth potential for the company,” Esker states in a press release. “As one of Europe’s main economic powers, the Benelux attracts a lot of large companies, especially when it comes to industrial domains and biotechnology. The fact that Esker already has many clients here – such as Abbott, Atlas Copco, Greenyard, Heineken and INEOS – proves how dynamic the region is.”

Local potential and talent

Esker’s announcement also mentions the appointment of Adelin Odent as Country Manager for Esker Benelux, which is headquartered in Ghent (Flanders). Odent has been managing the Benelux business from France for the past 10 years.

 am proud to contribute to Esker’s expansion in this strategic region. Our new office will allow us to closely support our local customers in their digital transformation of administrative and financial processes. We plan to double our team in the region and will become more attractive to local talent with the opening of the new office.
