Leslie Cottenjé Becomes General Manager of Codit Belgium

Leslie will embark on her role at Codit on 4th September 2023

Codit has appointed Leslie Cottenjé as its new General Manager of Codit Belgium. Aged 38, Leslie has spent the last eight years as CEO at Hello Customer, a SaaS company based in Ghent, which she co-founded in 2015. She is also a board member at Guberna and Spotto, among other companies.

Codit’s CEO Stijn Degrieck says: “We have an ambitious target to grow 15% annually, doubling our turnover in 5 years. To steer that trajectory in the right direction, each country team is managed by a driven General Manager. In Belgium, the position has been vacant for some time. With Leslie Cottenjé we have found someone to further develop our company: she combines a technological background and expertise in AI with extensive sales experience and a clear vision of inspiring leadership. We want to take a step forward commercially and Leslie’s profile fits perfectly with the people business in which Codit operates.”

Leslie is looking forward to her new challenge. “Developing a strategy, maintaining relationships with clients, and building a company culture is close to my heart,” she says. “When talking to Stijn and Codit’s management, I immediately felt like we were on the same wavelength. Contributing to a transformation path aiming for sustainable growth through strong strategy, technological innovation, and a people-centric culture, was a challenge I couldn’t pass up. That’s why I decided to make the switch.”

At Hello Customer, Managing Director Bram De Vos takes over from Leslie.
