TSG appoints new chief executive to lead company’s Asia expansion
December 13, 2019

Aiming to further drive its expansion in Asia, the Transaction Services Group has announced the appointment of Olivier Vandercamme to the new position of Chief Executive, Asia.

Commenting on the appointment, Steven Holmes, TSG Group Chief Executive of TSG advsed “the recruiting of Olivier confirms that TSG is serious about the Japanese health and fitness market.

“Today, more than four million Japanese citizens are members of health and fitness clubs and Japan represents Asia’s largest health and fitness market by revenue.”

“After considerable analysis, we are convinced that TSG has an innovative, unparalleled offering for the Japanese market in our gym management software and integrated payments platform."

Described as a global executive with proven ability to build teams, establish marketplace relationships, and grow customers and revenue, Vandercamme stated “I don’t think I could be joining TSG at a more exciting time.

"TSG is a leading player throughout Australasia and the UK with new clients in Europe and the USA. With gym membership penetration of the Japanese population at about four percent, we anticipate a major opportunity for growth.”

Vandercamme joins TSG from Life Fitness Japan where he served as President and Representative Director. During his tenure at the fitness equipment provider, Olivier established a new market strategy, built a leadership team, and more than doubled market share increasing profit by more than ten times.

Previously, Belgium-born Vandercamme held senior management positions at BEA Japan and Diba Japan. 

Fluent in English and Japanese, he is a recipient of a Master’s Degree with mention in Communications Sciences at University of Liege Belgium.

Looking forward to Vandercamme contribution to the business, Holmes added “Olivier’s track record of crafting market strategies, building teams, and establishing industry relationships will be crucial to our ambitions in Japan and throughout Asia.”

TSG provides business management software, integrated payments, and value-added services to the health and fitness industry and owns Links Modular Solutions, Debitsuccess and FFA PaySmart.
