We are very proud to welcome CIONET’s 5000th member today, Ireneusz Kubalewski from the Polish brewery Żywiec (part of Heineken).
CIONET started in January 2006 and reached a first milestone of 500 members in 2009, and 1000 members the year after. With 5000 members in 2015 across more than 12 countries, CIONET becomes a truly global network for CIO’s and digital leaders.
“I am particularly proud of this achievement”, sais CIONET General Manager and founder Hendrik Deckers, “This milestone has been partially achieved through geographic expansion, but more importantly through organic growth within the countries. The growth in our member base is a reflection of our constant focus on delivering high quality added value programs to our members, and hereby fulfilling our mission, which is to make all our member more successful in their job.”
CIONET is particularly proud of the tremendous start the two countries launched in 2015 have achieved so far, Poland and Colombia. The success in these countries will be instrumental in reaching out to new territories in the near future.
