About Me

Moved by people’s performance and the sweet taste of success, I continue to generate maximum impact. Both in my work and in my social life I strive to leave a mark, be it by compiling winning teams, leaving unforgettable memories or by securing spectacular closings. My career decisions follow unexpected turns, shifting in professional roles from developing and teaching to sales and operations.

On the crossroads of proven skills and new personal adventures is where I constantly find myself, challenging my abilities. I have come to the point where I bring the lessons learned on team level to the level of the organisation, lining up every single company department for success. Work hard, play smart. I demand this from myself as well as from others.

I am a dedicated mentor, an analytic, and a coding enthusiast, a change maker and people manager. I am a frequent flyer, a team builder, and a business accelerator. I am not so much of a morning person, but unaffected by jetlag. I have an eye for talent and I value transparency and integrity, honouring the adagio 'a deal is a deal'. I am a persistent motivator, an adventurer, a clear observer and a vigorous companion.

My secret key is to find the individual’s strength and get it to flourish in the right environment. I am here to shake things up and guide towards success.

Sales Engineer
As a Sales Engineer my goal is to take away prospects concerns, mostly from a technical perspective. By presenting, demoing and workshopping I'm supporting sales executives to get deals closed. What I love most? Pitching and doing deep-dives in a competitive bidding process. I like to give that little bit extra to get things done! I'm not scared of traveling. Currently I am abroad about 20% - 30% of my time. 

Next to being customer facing, my responsibility is also to provide our company feedback, coming from prospects. Therefore I'm very much involved in meetings with all departments throughout the company.

Robin is hands down the best hiring manager I've worked with till date. The way he sticks with keeping his team culture alive is inspiring. Robin has a natural way for determining fit, and will turn down star candidates if he does not feel that cultural match. It's the only valid way to build a team and you can see it paying off when you see his Pre-Sales team in action. 
Ronald Wanink
CTO at Servoy
Robin is a fully armed pre-sales engineer: strong technological background, experience with cloud and mobile, hard working, people oriented and an absolute pleasure to work with. Next to a commercial and goal-driven attitude, he adds that extra goodwill that people like to buy from. 
I had the pleasure of working closely with him, and next to strong sales results, he brought us an excellent pair of eyes and ears in the market. Would I do it again? Yes, please!
