Fran├žois Zielemans

Over the last ten years I gained deep knowledge and international experience in defining and executing IT & sourcing strategies, improving financial performance, (compliance) risk management and business-IT alignment. I have managed complex international projects with a value-at-risk of more than 60 million and worked in among others FSI, Technology/Telecom and FMCG. As a managing partner at Virtum I advise organisations which want to unleash the full potential of their IT Value Chain.

I am staff writer for www.SourcingLing.com. Currently, I am working as a freelance editor and writer from India. I have been in the online news writing business since 2006. I also write for Citybizlist, a business news portal for SEC filings in Washington, DC. This is an exciting time to be in India, particularly as we wait and see how the recession plays out and leads into a global recovery for outsourcing firms.
