Helping people and organisations with IT is my passion. Getting the most out of the combination of people, process and information technology. The more I can help someone, the more energy I get.
More and more is possible with information technology. The possibilities create opportunities for companies. And also threats. How do you maximise the gains and minimise the risks? This is where I help companies.
What are the new developments and how can you make optimal use? What challenges exist in a company and how can IT help out? Connecting technology and entrepreneurship is what I enjoy and what I do for a living.
I am working in IT since 1991. During this period I have been leading many different IT projects. Since the beginning I have been involved with the business side and therefore was asked to participate in various management teams.
Started in 1991 as programmer at Multec in Delft. After 18 months I was put in charge of IT at Multec. This was the beginning of setting up an IT department, I have worked on business processes (sales, quality) and was asked to become a management team member. In 1996 I made the step to the Brunel International, the holding company of Multec. Here I worked for two years as business controller and participated with the IPO in 1997.
From 2000 until beginning 2016 I had various European CIO/IT manager positions with the DuPont company in the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and Switzerland. Have been intimately involved in the full breadth of business processes in a multinational company.
Since mid 2016 I am back in the Netherlands as an independant entrepreneur. Hereby I am helping SMEs with general management activities, with implementation projects and with making choices in relation to IT and business.
