And the Trends Manager of the Year 2020 is… – Companies

It is Fabien Pinckaers, founder and CEO of the scale-up Odoo, specialist in business management software, who has just been elected Manager of the Year 2020 by Trends-Tendances magazine. He becomes the 36th Manager of the Year and succeeds Yvan Verougstraete, CEO of Medi-Market.

This year, due to the health crisis, the proclamation of the Trends Manager of the Year 2020 took place exclusively via the antennas of Canal Z.

The prize rewards both an extraordinary entrepreneurial journey having succeeded in creating a multinational of 1,000 people from a project started in his student room at UCLouvain, as well as the atypical vision of a manager and young head of computer group.

Driven by the desire to change the world of management software, Fabien Pinckaers made a daring bet very early on: that of creating free management software (ERP) based on the open source model, intended mainly for SMEs. An approach unlike those of large groups such as SAP, Oracle or Microsoft that sell proprietary solutions. This bet placed the project directly on the international scene and, through successive adaptations, it enabled TinyERP (the ancestor of Odoo) to find success.

This title awarded to Fabien Pinckaers also crowns, if not above all, his vision and his atypical approach to management. This discreet CEO who likes to take risks to grow the company, leaves a lot of autonomy and responsibility to his teams, reduces the hierarchical levels as much as possible to facilitate responsiveness and keep talent in their right place and feeds a real obsession. for efficiency.

His role as boss? Intervene in everything that transforms the company to make it more efficient and place it in the best conditions to continue to grow. Concretely, he can intervene in the improvement of marketing processes, the development of new product functionalities, etc. In short, remove all the obstacles to Odoo’s growth.

By designating Fabien Pinckaers, Trends-Tendances highlights a persevering manager who is fearless and whose company has become the standard for the new generation of French-speaking tech entrepreneurs.
