Hi. I’m Raymond.

A multilingual business professional and PRINCE2® certified project manager.

My Mission?

To help multinationals DELIVER CHANGE FASTER & MORE EFFECTIVE by deploying the PRINCE2® method.

  • Projects become more efficient
  • Risks are greatly reduced
  • Senior management can delegate without worry

My Passion?

Sustainable Projects

For our future and for the next generations sake it’s crucial to live a sustainable life. Continuing this line in my work, I prefer to invest my time in projects that are PART OF THE SOLUTION.

One example is the execution of the project management for the PIEK-Keur foundation. Here we developed silent logistical equipment (hand & electro pallet trucks), silent coachwork (floors, tailgates), Quiet trucks (Volvo, Scania) etc. This made loading & unloading possible in cities at nighttime whilst remaining within the noise emission standards: 60dB(A). Good for the civilians who now have proper night rest and good for the retail, trade and craft businesses, who need to cope with the increasing demand due to the growing 24-hour economy. https://www.piek-international.com/

At my full potential…

Engaging my structured and outgoing nature, I thrive when I am involved in large scale projects. Such an environment allows me to do what I do best: plan, organize, follow-up and interact with all stakeholders involved.

A relevant case is the assignment as the project manager of Scala Logistica. A 1,5+ years project, which involved an intensive collaboration of 50 logistics market parties who presented 5 innovative concepts through 5 different live shows. They thereby informed the visitors of trade fair Logistica about the ‘State of the Art in Logistics’.
