Rony’s vision for ZeoNet is to provide the right expertise at the right time and at the right price to assist Oil & Gas Downstream clients to improve their profitability. His goal is to provide a comprehensive and fit for purpose set of skills to his clients, whether for a small strategy study or a large system implementation. The specific field of interest is the Hydrocarbon Supply Chain, from Crude Oil Evaluation and Acquisition to Refined Product Distribution, where he has spent all of his career. This field is notorious for presenting the biggest challenges for data accuracy and integration, and can lead to important margin leaks. He has assembled teams of experienced professionals with diverse backgrounds who have contributed to the success of many client programs and projects globally. He provides these teams consistent updated information about the latest methods and information technology solutions that have proven effective. He makes certain everyone truly teams with the client to achieve all goals and objectives. Rony’s proven leadership and expertise, coupled with his commitment and availability to the client at all times, has established ZeoNet as a leader in a highly competitive arena worldwide.
Rony has focused his professional career in serving clients in the Oil & Gas industry. He has held key roles and leadership positions in Oil & Gas Refining Management with Fina (now TOTAL), and in management with IT firms including Bonner & Moore (now Honeywell), PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Accenture, prior to creating ZeoNet in 2000. Through the years he has gained invaluable knowledge of the history of support applications in the industry (linear programming and optimization, scheduling, material balancing, performance optimization) and various methods of implementation. He knows what works and what does not work.
Rony has a M.S. degree in Business Administration and a PhD. in Chemistry from the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium.
