More than fifteen years ago, g-company was founded and became the very first partner of Google Workspace in the Benelux. And exactly ten years ago we added the very first Salesforce.org partnership in the Benelux. We could only have dreamed that cloud-first applications and everything workplace related would evolve in such a disruptive way and have such an impact on the way that people work today. Surfing on the wave of especially Cloud and Data, g-company grew into an expert company with more than 70 talented colleagues and offices in the Netherlands, Belgium and Malaysia.
In recent years we have been able to help many great organizations to embrace the latest developments in the field of workplace security, flexibility and simplicity. We would like to thank you all for your confidence in us and the opportunities you have given us to carry out beautiful and innovative projects together.
We are proud of everyone we worked with and still work with that have further developed g-company from a start-up to a mature organization, and who have expanded our expertise into all facets of the workplace: digital transformation, change management, fundraising, community building, security, strategy, support, and training. When it comes to a simple, agile and secure workplace, we can tailor to any situation or need.
Two years ago, we expressed the ambition together with Xebia to build a leading international IT organization with a focus on Data, Cloud, Software Development, and Low Code. In doing so, we aim to adapt our services to the internationalization of the labor market, as well as offer our colleagues an unbounded opportunity to develop themselves and realize their ambitions.
Thanks to organic growth and targeted acquisitions, we are now active in 20 countries with 6,000 colleagues. And we keep on growing. Together with all the different units, expertises and focuses, we are even better equipped to offer you what you need.
In order to realize our ambition, the g-company brand will cease to exist as of 1 April 2023 and we will continue under the name Xebia. With this rebranding, we will further expand our strength, portfolio, and international reach.
We will do so in two separate units. First of all, a unit where we fully focus on the cloud-first workplace with Google Workspace and ChromeOS, among others. The second unit will focus 100% on helping organizations set up and apply Salesforce.
Although the g-company name and logo will disappear, our quality, culture and expertise will remain as you have come to expect from us. We have always shared the same mission and values with Xebia. The rebranding allows us to push our boundaries and goals, unleash our full potential, and make our customers the winners in tomorrow’s world.
Thanks again for your trust and I look forward to a successful further cooperation!
On behalf of all colleagues at g-company | now Xebia,
