The pan-European Digital Identity company Signicat appoints Michel van den Bogaard as its new Chief Financial Officer. Based in Signicat Rotterdam’s office, van der Bogaard will lead a team of more than 35 people across Europe and will report directly to CEO Asger Hattel.
“I am thrilled to announce that Michel van den Bogaard is our new CFO from the 1st of September. Michel’s diverse background and expertise in financial management, and especially his experience working with private equity owners, makes him the ideal profile for taking over as CFO, and accompanying us in the coming chapters of our journey. His proven success internationally, working with leading logos and transformative agenda, and his deep knowledge in SaaS, makes him a great asset to the team,” said Asger Hattel, CEO of Signicat.
With more than 25 years of experience in financial positions, Michel has worked in global brands such as Shell and Heineken. He also has extensive experience in the private equity sector.
In his most recent role, Michel served as the Group CFO of SENTIA, one of the leading companies for business-critical Managed Cloud Services in North-Western Europe, which has recently been acquired by Accenture.
“I am excited to join Signicat. Its comprehensive offering of Digital Trust technology to a wide range of businesses across Europe impressed me. My objective is to support the business as it continues its spectacular growth,” states Van den Bogaard.
Michel van den Bogaard joins Signicat in times of changes: After the recent acquisitions of European-based companies like Dokobit (Lithuania), Sphonic (United Kingdom), and Electronic IDentification (Spain), Signicat has strengthened its role as the European leader in digital identity services.
