Healthcare is one of the world’s fastest developing industries, and, like in other fields, there’s great potential to employ insights gained from (big) data and technology to improve quality and affordability. This is exactly what healthcare analytics firm LOGEX aims to do. To support the group CEO and senior management team in realizing successful integration of companies within the group and prepare for future growth, LOGEX is currently looking to hire a Corporate Development Manager.
LOGEX is about people as much as it is about technology. The company’s mission is to combine advanced data analytics and best-in-class technologies to yield clear insights that can be used to shape the future of healthcare and enhance quality and affordability. Founded in 2008 by three Dutch entrepreneurs – Rudolph Haardt, Koen Luijckx and Martijn van Wagensveld – all of whom started out in the industry by running financial analyses for hospitals during their studies in Rotterdam. LOGEX has since grown into a successful 60-employee-strong organization. Its core values include an emphasis on professionalism; a focus on adding value to clients’ businesses; innovation and creativity; and openness and honesty. As a frontrunner in healthcare analytics in the Netherlands, LOGEX actively pursues opportunities abroad and has recently set up operations in France, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Middle East.
The company’s optimistic, innovative and data-driven approach to healthcare has proven to be precisely what the market lacked and required. LOGEX employs a team of young, ambitious specialists in the fields of econometrics, medicine and computer science, currently servicing over 90 percent of the Netherlands’ hospitals.
Implementing groundbreaking models
Using advanced software, the business conducts in-depth analyses to provide hospitals and physicians with actionable insights into their performance so that they’re better positioned to make sound decisions regarding budgets, forecasts and pricing strategies. This way, institutions are able to seize all opportunities that come with ongoing developments in the industry. While the company’s employees come from varied backgrounds, they all share a pragmatic view on the field and want to be closely involved in implementing groundbreaking models that allow for appropriate, value-based healthcare.
This October, LOGEX joined forces with Swedish Ivbar and Finnish Prodacapo. The companies all hold leading positions in their respective markets – the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway, UK and France – and together aim to strengthen their ability to inform and support sustainable quality improvements, transparency and efficiency in healthcare even further.
About the vacancy: Corporate Development Manager
The new role of Corporate Development Manager has been created specifically for the purpose of navigating the integration efforts necessary to make the aforementioned merger with Ivbar and Prodacapo, and reinforce the company’s position as European market leader. The new LOGEX group will count more than 250 employees, 60 of whom are based in Amsterdam. The LOGEX office in Amsterdam will serve as the LOGEX Group headquarters, with other offices across Sweden, Finland, Norway, UK, France, Czech Republic and other locations in the Netherlands.
Creating synergies through all disciplines and departments
The Corporate Development Manager will be responsible for setting up and running the integration and synergy project office. In an organization that has dealt with various mergers in the past years, creating synergies through all disciplines and departments is crucial for future success . For example key areas to focus on include the organization’s technology infrastructure and creating cultural synergy in the company’s HR profile.
He/she will monitor progress against goals on an ongoing basis and keep in close contact with other sectors of the business to help support and execute initiatives. The candidate’s daily responsibilities will include developing strategic business cases for proposed projects, reviewing and evaluating business synergies, and executing operational risk analyses. The Corporate Development Manager will report directly to the CEO of the new LOGEX Group, Philipp Jan Flach, with whom he/she will also work closely.
This role is ideal for a strategy consultant looking to take the next step in his/her career. Similarly, someone with an extensive background in investment banking would also be a great fit. Knowledge of the healthcare industry is not a prerequisite; experience with tech (software) is a definite advantage. Successful candidates will have a thorough understanding of one or more core operational functions (e.g., Tech/IT, Product Development, Finance, Supply Chain Management, Procurement, Marketing, and/or Sales) and will preferably have experience in navigating turnover-focused post-deal integrations. Typically, he/she has an entrepreneurial spirit, is not afraid to take decisions quickly and is always on the lookout for ways to improve the business.
