After finishing his study in Commercial Economics, Ron de Mos has been active in the ICT sector for more than 35 years. Of which a good 25 years in various SVP and General Manager roles in the field of international customer care, service delivery, application management and leading ICT Companies, both in the Netherlands and abroad (including Johannesburg, South-Africa). Among other organizations, Ron has worked for IBM, KPN and CGI. He was a member of the Board of Nederland ICT, VNO-NCW and a member of the National Cyber Security Council.
In this stage of his career and life, his desire is to leverage his experience, expertise and leadership in:
- helping leaders and organizations with the challenges of the digital reality. He believes this is a Boardroom topic, as the digital reality changes the role of Companies in their value chain, it drives the need for new business model, it changes the competitive environment and the customer – and employee journey. Next to his professional career Ron is Ambassador for the Net4Kids Foundation and the MamaZoeloe Foundation.
- defining what the reality is in the labour market for ICT professionals and driving structural improvements in the inflow of new ICT talent. Furthermore, he is striving for sustained implementation of ‘Lifelong Learning’ in organizations and redefining the reality of (changing) career paths for ICT professionals and in non-ICT professions, due to digitization.
As a coach, Ron likes to help newly appointed, new generation leaders grow into senior executive role, having his clients benefit from his own experience and lessons learned as a senior leader. Both when it comes to the people side of leadership and with themes like digitalization and its impact on organizational strategy, people and society, he likes to challenge and council, with the ultimate goal to increase the (business) impact of leaders.
His goal is to work with leaders to define and find the ‘why’ of an organization, and drive value from the purpose of leading organizations and people, but also to define the ‘why’ of the leader him/herself.
