MediaGeniX is 'Beloftevolle Onderneming van het Jaar'

This win follows our top ranking in the Trends Gazelles (fast-growing companies that are a major source of innovation, employment, competitiveness and creative entrepreneurship) and our Export Lion award (company with the most outstanding export performance).
We dedicate this new success to our customer community. Their proximity and co-creation enable us to live up to our promise and keeps our Broadcast Management System WHATS’On ahead of the curve.



The press release by organizer EY Belgium:



MEDIAGENIX WINS THE ‘PRIJS VAN DE VLAAMSE REGERING VOOR DE BELOFTEVOLLE
ONDERNEMING VAN HET JAAR’ 2016


Brussels, 18 October 2016. In the context of the award ceremony for the ‘Onderneming
van het Jaar®’ 2016, MediaGeniX from Groot-Bijgaarden won the ‘Prijs van de Vlaamse
Regering voor de Beloftevolle Onderneming van het Jaar’ 2016. The other finalistes were
e-BO Enterprises (Ypres), Multiplicom (Niel) and REstore (Antwerp). Flemish Minister of
Work, Economy, Innovation and Sports Philippe Muyters presented the award to Dirk
Debraekeleer, CEO of MediaGeniX. MediaGeniX is the 11th laureate to receive this award.

MediaGenix, established in 1992, is a European market-leader in broadcast management
systems. The company develops and implements WHATS’On, Europe’s most advanced
broadcast management system. WHATS’On is used on a daily basis by 65 media groups for 1,700
radio, TV and online video channels in Europe, the Middle East, the US, Asia, Latin America and
Oceania. MediaGenix employs 130 people and realised revenues of 21 million euro in 2015.
The company won the ‘Leeuw van de Export 2016’ award for its excellent export results.

MediaGenix emerges as young promising company
In addition to the award of ‘Onderneming van het Jaar®’ 2016, the presentation of the ‘Prijs van
de Vlaamse Regering voor de Beloftevolle Onderneming van het Jaar’ 2016 also took place. The
Flemish Government aims with this prize to reward a company in full development for its
performance and to motivate it for the future. MediaGenix was chosen as the winner by the jury.
The other finalists were e-BO Enterprises, Multiplicom and REstore.

“MediaGenix has resolutely pursued digitalisation in the media sector, which has been under
pressure from new technologies for years. Accordingly, it demonstrates that companies in
Flanders can undergo a successful transformation and that “disruption” doesn’t just create losers, but also many winners. MediaGenix has a very clear focus and listens closely to its customers.
In this way, the company always remains a step ahead of its competitors and, despite the rapid
pace of technological change, has built up an impressive and very loyal international customer
base. MediaGenix has excelled in a sector in which only a few Flemish companies achieve
successful internationalisation. MediaGenix is highly profitable and can rely on a strong balance
sheet. That means it is well placed for further growth”, explains Geert Noels, president of the
jury.


“We created the ‘Prijs van de Vlaamse Regering voor de Beloftevolle Onderneming van het Jaar’
in order to highlight promising Flemish companies. MediaGenix is such a company, which has
managed to grow in a highly challenging sector, both within Flanders and internationally, thanks
to a dynamic vision. MediaGenix demonstrates that boldness and enterprise pay. This company
is a source of inspiration to many others and could win the ‘Onderneming van het Jaar®’ award
one day,” says Stefan Olivier, partner and Markets Leader EY Belgium.
