Munich, November 30, 2023: The digital consulting, solutions, and software house valantic has appointed Daniel Boyé as its new Director Group IT. In this role, the 46-year-old will use technological innovation to expand the IT platforms across valantic and best accompany its future growth iterations. His responsibilities will also focus on further strengthening internal cybersecurity and aligning it with the growing threat situation. Boyé joins valantic from Allianz Global Investors, where he most recently worked as Director IT Service Assurance and Service Management.
The digital consulting, solutions, and software house valantic has grown strongly in recent years and forecasts revenues of around EUR 550 million in the current financial year. Around 4,000 employees at more than 60 locations worldwide currently work for the company. The aim is to sustain this growth and underpin it optimally in the future with a high-performance IT ecosystem.
“In my role as Director Group IT, I’d like to accompany valantic’s operating business in its next growth phases as best I can,” says Daniel Boyé, setting the strategic direction for his new role at valantic. Boyé gained in-depth knowledge of the IT business from various perspectives in former management positions at service provider T-Systems, management consultant KPMG, and the Allianz insurance group. “I’m really excited about contributing my experience from these different fields to one of Europe’s fastest-growing consultancies with immediate effect,” says Boyé.
“The chance to work on something truly significant”
Boyé holds a Master in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of St. Gallen and studied in London and Düsseldorf, among other places. “I’m really energized by building and shaping something new, thus helping our customers and colleagues become a little better each day. At valantic, I feel that I’ve been given exactly this opportunity and the chance to work on something truly significant. Our journey has only just begun,” says Boyé, describing his impression from the initial discussions.
“Daniel’s expertise fits in perfectly with valantic’s ambitious goals. Internally, we also have the objective of always taking advantage of all the opportunities that new technologies and AI in particular offer us. The biggest challenge that I see both on the customer side and internally in the coming years is not the introduction of new technologies per se, but the change management required to ensure that all colleagues use these technologies correctly. AI in particular only works as a symbiosis of people and technology. AI is a “thought booster”. For the changes that lie ahead, we need people who understand technology, but who also understand people. We have found such a person in Daniel”, affirms Dr. Holger von Daniels, founder and CEO of valantic.
