Letter from the CEO

Dear customers, business partners, employees and shareholders,


2018 marked an important next step in our journey to build a platform for sustained profitable growth. We worked hard to further complement our strong innovation power with greater business efficiency and resilience.

‘Say.Do’ was our rallying cry and I‘m pleased to confirm that we have done what we promised we would do in many fields. While strengthening our foundations, we delivered another year of strong profitable growth. Today, we are ready to further shape Barco for the future.

Why shape? Well, to be fit to lead in an ever more global and dynamic market, we must keep boosting our agility, customer focus and innovation power and accelerate the growth momentum. That implies taking steps like:

  • shaping our organization: simplifying our organizational structure, sharpening our efficiency and strengthening our footprint around the globe;
  • shaping our capabilities: strengthening our software development, product management and service capabilities;
  • shaping our offering: innovating the solutions and services we offer and the way we work.

‘Shaping Barco’ is a never-ending journey that will help us to be successful for many more years to come. I am looking forward to working on that in 2019 and beyond, together with all our employees, customers, business partners and shareholders.
