Bernard Vermeir - element61
Business Analytics experience
25 years
Principal Performance Management Architect

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 (merged into element61) as a consultant for SAP BPC (former Outlooksoft), to share his practical knowledge on financial and performance reporting with colleagues and customers. He has been involved in the implementation of a series of projects mainly in the area of planning, budgeting and forecasting as well as consolidation with SAP BPC. As a certified SAP BPC consultant, Bernard has a very good understanding of the budgeting and planning process in a production environment, next to that he is experienced in setting up Activity Based Costing models.

Since 2016 Bernard added CCH Tagetik to his skillset. Today at element61, Bernard has an active role in the implementation of several projects within CCH Tagetik and continues to excel within his natural habitat of CPM reporting processes. Within his former role at Spector, Bernard was involved, from a customer perspective, within the implementation of both management reporting, costing and financial consolidation applications. With this experience complemented with relevant consulting maturity, he is well placed to guide clients through the implementation process of different performance management topics. Bernard can perfectly balance the customer needs vs. the best practice within a CPM/EPM solution, like CCH Tagetik or SAP Business Planning & Consolidation. 

When he's not working, Bernard likes to taste a good beer, watch soccer and enjoys to ride the electric bike.
