I am often described as friendly yet persistent. A natural leader without the need to be in the spotlight. I consider my analytical skills an asset but understand that an analysis without a conclusion that is converted into action is useless. I tend to be a fanatic when it comes to achieving goals and am almost allergic to pointless use of buzzwords and people that back away from their responsibility.
It is my strong belief that business success usually is a result of a strategic approach in which multiple business areas (marketing, business development, culture, product development, etc.) are aligned properly. I love to see people in my team excel at what they do.
The potential of individuals is best unlocked when they feel respected and part of the team and when their value to the business is acknowledged. Feedback on performance needs to delivered explicitly, in time and in a constructive way to facilitate individual professional growth.
I take great pride in the fact that all teams that I have been offered the opportunity to manage, even from a relatively young age, have made significant commercial progress.
My latest company entity has achieved a double digit CAGR of over the years 2010-2017. Its market position has strengthened and they are currently perceived to be market leading in their segment.
