Press release September 7th 2015
It is with pleasure and pride that we can announce the appointment of Luc Van de Velde as the new Chief Executive Officer for RecoMatics NV. Wilfried Geulleaume, who held the position of CEO since 2005, will assume the position of Chairman and he will remain the majority shareholder.
Luc brings 30 years of enterprise software, B2B, consultancy and partner development know-how to RecoMatics, with over 20 years of senior management experience with large-scale global organizations.
Prior to joining RecoMatics 6 months ago, Luc held various leadership positions during 15 years at Microsoft. After joining Microsoft in 1999 he was responsible for building up the BeLux consulting department, after that he led the team in charge of growing the sales and technical capacity of the Microsoft partner channel. And in his last role at Microsoft Luc was responsible for the introduction and adoption of new technologies like cloud and mobile computing.

"As RecoMatics opens this new chapter, I am confident that Luc is the right person to lead the company forward," said Wilfried Geulleaume.

We believe that his passion for solving business problems and creating economic opportunity through ICT will help ensure that RecoMatics continues to deliver innovations in document management and processing solutions."
“Luc will realize the ambitious growth plans that have been decided for by the shareholders. With the release of our first SaaS product, Vycunia, RecoMatics requires a different approach in many domains and Luc has the right background to help RecoMatics realize that ambition”.
"I am honoured to have been asked to take this role and am looking forward to lead the RecoMatics team which I learned to know in the past couple of months as a group of great individuals and dedicated professionals” said Luc Van de Velde. “I’m excited about the possibilities and potential RecoMatics has and I’m looking forward to help the company grow to the next level. RecoMatics’ leadership in automatic document recognition and processing will help us expand in new areas. With Vycunia we have our first SaaS product which will allow us to grow internationally and build a partner channel. To support our growth we have 10 open positions to fill in the next couple of months. We’re looking for strong candidates in product development, project delivery, channel building but also more administrative roles.”
Luc Van de Velde will take up his new role as CEO on September 7th, 2015.
RecoMatics is a Belgian ISV that helps organizations better manage their documents, files and administrative processes by implementing document management and automated document processing solutions. RecoMatics started its business in 1995 and is celebrating its 20th birthday, but it still feels like a young start-up that is more agile than it’s ever been. RecoMatics is a Microsoft Gold partner since many years.
EasyForm was the first product portfolio RecoMatics created, offering automatic document processing like invoice handling. Thanks to the continuous success it still is the backbone for RecoMatics ECM solutions. EasyForm has been integrated with Microsoft SharePoint.
In 2015 RecoMatics launched Vycunia, a unique SaaS solution that can import, compose and assign documents to Microsoft Dynamics CRM and bridge the gap between CRM and ECM.
