Twan in a few words

I’m a pragmatic and driven professional with an entrepreneurial spirit and a track record of building relationships and managing growth projects from concept to scaling and market validation.

I’m an adaptable leader who can build teams, keep people engaged and drive a culture of innovation. I develop opportunities, look for continuous improvement, and can make critical decisions in a fast-paced and uncertain environment. I use my analytical skills to think critically, analyze data and report with KPI-driven results.

When I'm not working on growth and expansion, you are likely to find me in the water enjoying kiteboarding or foiling.

Career highlights (more info in the experiences section):
- Scaled a property management company in the Vacation Rental Industry from scratch to $2.5M annual revenue within a timeframe of 3 years with no external funding. We served 3 markets and acquired 3 companies;
- Created go-to-market strategies for tech companies within the (live) entertainment industry and set up their (growth) framework and established R&D. For one scale-up I was responsible for its execution by identifying and developing new business opportunities;
- Worked as a junior Marketing & Sales Manager for the Consultancy industry in which I developed a risk management assessment tool and organized various B2B (networking) events.

Currently looking for a new entrepreneurial/leadership challenge from Q4 2022/Q1 2023 in which I will be carrying growth and expansion responsibilities for grasping opportunities and driving innovation forward. Need more hands in these areas? Let's get in touch!
