She has extensive experience in leadership roles, having previously worked as Executive Vice President and Chief Delivery Officer at SDL.
“In these unprecedented times, we are partnering with our clients to help drive their global success and support the development of their AI solutions. Silke is the right person to accelerate and scale our growth in the coming years” said Olivier Reynders, Chairman of the Board of Directors. “Her passion for customers and technology, combined with her global experience will ensure Jonckers creates the next chapter of innovation and growth.”
“This is an exciting time for Jonckers and our WordsOnline platform” confirms Zschweigert. “We help companies to go global faster and more cost-effectively. Our platform, underpinned by our multilingual community allows us to be as scalable and as agile as our customers require, wherever they are in the world. It ensures high quality and rapid delivery, meeting the needs of today’s enterprises.
