What I can do for you
I have been fortunate to gain a wide range of experience. But I have found I work best at a strategic level, at the demarcation between commerce and technology, where people need to be brought together to realize supported and lasting change.
Where I focus on creating long-term value for an organization, by developing optimal product/service portfolio's to fit long-term market developments, trends in customer behavior, and complex market relationships.
Where I focus on continuously aligning an organization's project portfolio with top-level management strategies, identifying and mitigating risks, and optimal utilisation of available company-wide resources.
Where I focus on helping stakeholders understand and adopt the change needed to achieve the desired organizational result, by optimizing processes, systems, and organizational structure, and by clarifying roles.

Please, let me introduce myself
I'm an accelerator and a force of change. Not hindered by status quo, I go in with a fresh and creative mind to improve any situation.
As an agile and accomplished General I focus on coaching and self-empowering teams towards ambitious long-term commercial results, not just on managing them. Forging professional and personal bonds in leading roles, I have achieved solid results in Product & Portfolio Development, Program Management and Process & Change Management, mostly in B2B, ICT, Digital Transformation and Wholesale Partnerships.
My extensive experience in working within different companies, fields and cultural frameworks, means I will adapt to your specific situational needs in a heartbeat. My analytical and social prowess allow me to dissect a challenge, create an environment in which the challenge can be met, oversee programs through to outstanding results and get all stakeholders onboard in the process
But more importantly, I'm a great and professional guy to work with. I'm interested in what you do and how we can work together so you can do it even better. Feel free to contact me to see how we can create value together!
