Mark Wiermans is currently responsible for the Salesforce Business Group. This underlines Accenture’s strategy that Salesforce is one of the important strategic technology platforms, next to Microsoft, SAP and Oracle, that can provide disruptive power for its clients. The Salesforce Business Group works closely together with Accenture’s core operating groups: Strategy, Consulting, Digital, Technology, and Operations. Mark’s role is to bring these various groups of expertise together, to offer clients an integrated journey to the cloud with Salesforce’s extensive CRM solutions.
With over 100 certified and experienced Salesforce consultants, he is ready to give you maximum collaboration and support with a strong focus on companies in Financial Services, Resources, Manufacturing, Retail, Telecom, and Media.
Mark joined Accenture back in 2003, after having worked at Oracle, PwC and IBM. Next to shaping, selling and delivering the ERP/CRM domain, he was responsible for building and accelerating Accenture’s Oracle practice until 2012.
After that, Mark moved to Technology Services at our location in Almere. He was responsible for the rapid growth of the delivery center in Almere by making sure our people remained relevant and cost-effective in on-shore delivery. This was achieved by applying industrialization, growing entrepreneurship and investing in new technologies and industry capabilities.
For the past two years, Mark was responsible for expanding a new Accenture location in Heerlen, the Accenture Innovation Center for Smart Services. The Center focuses on innovative smart services, based on service design, big data and artificial intelligence. They service clients in the Benelux and Germany with local talent.
It’s Mark's view that organizations should expect to profit from the commoditization of IT. Not only from an attractive price point but also from high quality at scale by highly standardized and automated delivery. This enables organizations to focus on realizing the competitive edge that new technologies can bring.
Within Accenture, he is also responsible for our Corporate Citizenship activities we perform together with JINC, which aims at helping kids between 8 and 16 to prepare for the labor market.
