I am a senior professional with broad range of competencies: I have an analytical mind but I can also design and build solutions, I can work in solo but I can also be a team-player or lead a group with vision. All this is reflected in what I studied and where I worked. I can easily navigate different cultures, industries, types of organisations, job functions. I feel equally at home in sales, research, development and operations because all these functions appeal to a part of me: interest in what motivates people, curiosity about the natural world, desire to solve problems and get things done.
I worked in a range of industries: energy, manufacturing, pharma, medical biotechnology, information, consulting, academic research and education. I have lived and worked in Amsterdam, Bangkok, Singapore and Luxemburg, with extended work assignments throughout Europe, Asia-Pacific, USA and South-America.
I am keen to apply my knowledge and skills to address the many unmet needs in our world with the unprecedented tools we have at our disposal today. I am strongly convinced that these tools (which combine data, analytics, artificial intelligence, human-machine interaction and digital-to-physical conversion technologies such as 3D printing and robotics) will dramatically improve operational effectiveness and enable completely new production- and business models, which can and should be used to benefit mankind. I am looking for opportunities to help build these models of the future.
