In the eighties, Bernard started his career at the Spector Photo group where he first became production manager. Later on he moved to the headquarters where he became responsible for financial reporting, budgeting and planning.
In October 2007, Bernard decided to join CFObelux as a consultant for SAP BPC (former Outlooksoft), to share his practical knowledge on financial reporting with the youngsters of the firm. He was involved in series of projects all in the area of planning, budgeting and forecasting with SAP BPC. He is a certified SAP BPC consultant. Bernard has a very good understanding of the budgeting and planning process in a production environment. In addition to that, he has experience in setting up Activity Based Costing models.
During his career at Spector, Bernard was involved in the implementation of a financial consolidation and management reporting application from a client perspective and is as such well placed today in his consulting career to guide clients through the implementation process. Bernard can perfectly balance the client's needs vs. the best practice within a CPM/EPM solution, like SAP Business Planning & Consolidation. Since 2016 he added Tagetik to his skillset. Nowadays, Bernard does a mix of Tagetik and SAP BPC projects.
When he's not working, Bernard likes to taste a good beer, watch soccer and enjoys to ride the electric bike.
