Beno Ceglar appointed new CEO of NIL

On October 1, 2019, Beno Ceglar took up the role of CEO at NIL. His goal is to lead NIL further on its growth path and increase the company’s recognition on international markets.

NIL is pleased to announce the appointment of Beno Ceglar as its new CEO. Ceglar knows the IT sector from the ground up and has extensive experience in various leadership positions, most recently as Country Lead at Cisco Slovenia.

I am honored to have been made NIL’s next CEO. It’s a privilege to be part of such an established and respected organization, known internationally for the quality of its consulting as well as professional and training services. I am confident that the company can even further increase its market recognition and stay on the growth path for many years to come, especially since we’ve become a part of Conscia group,” commented Ceglar and added that, “My focus will be the highest customer satisfaction derived from business and operational excellence. And our employees. They possess a tremendous amount of knowledge and expertise and, therefore, leveraging this potential and boosting innovation will be one of my key priorities. I will do my best to ensure that NIL is known as a company that truly helps customers embrace new business opportunities and as a company that makes a positive impact not just in business but also in the communities where we operate.

Ceglar is joining NIL’s leadership team during fast business growth. In March 2019, NIL was acquired by Conscia Holding A/S from Denmark. Thus, next to maintaining the positive growth trends, Ceglar’s key tasks will also be centered around integration with the mother company and leveraging group potential for expanding on new international markets.

Beno Ceglar succeeds Peter Mihelj, who served as interim CEO. Mihelj will take over the role of Chief Operating Officer as well as serve as deputy CEO.
