Petersime sales team developments

in Corporate news, Sales

It is our pleasure to announce two new faces in the Petersime sales team. Meanwhile, with mixed emotions and sincere gratitude for their service we are announcing the retirement of two senior colleagues this summer. We very much regret to see them go.


After 20 years of service to the company, John Vanackere will retire on the 1st of August 2018. As Area Sales Manager John was during all these years mainly active in Asia and Middle East. He will not leave us completely though. For the next two years he will stay on as Key Account Advisor for CP group worldwide. During this period, he will further share his extensive network with the new colleagues.

Carine Nachtergaele had a long career of 45 years with Petersime and will retire effective July 23rd. Carine’s retirement is our loss, but a well-deserved respite for her. We know you all join us in wishing her well as she starts a new chapter in her life. As from that day, Yasmine Peerts will take over her responsibilities as Internal Sales Officer for the Middle East. We are fortunate to add her to the team and have every confidence in her taking over those responsibilities.

Yasmine Peerts & Carine Nachtergaele

All of us at Petersime and in particular the sales team would like to thank John and Carine for their dedication to the company, their cooperation and friendship. We wish them many happy years of retirement!

New Area Sales manager for Africa

On April 17th, 2018, Matthieu Colle joined the Petersime sales team as Area Sales Manager for Africa. In the first coming months, Matthieu will be responsible for Nigeria and Ghana. Soon, he will expand this region with Tanzania, Uganda and Kenia. He will gradually add other African countries as well, except the French speaking countries served by our distributor CIDAPE.

Our entire organization is thrilled to welcome Matthieu to the team during this exciting time at Petersime. He will be a valuable member of the sales team and we are eager for you to begin working with him.
