“No-nonsense. Sense of humor. Seeing through and valueing basics. These aspects of Gerrit align with his maturity in working in international, multicultural and politically sensitive environments. Due to his entrepreneurial spirit he contributed as a leader in the development of “Ben” as a startup into a major site of T-Mobile.”
Gerrit is a very experienced manager who knows what he manages as well as how to deal with people. He shows leadership not only in difficult situations, is very authentic and does the right things at the right time and right way. If you have Gerrit in your team, you´re probably on the winner´s side…
Gerrit is a professional with many years of experience in managing complex change processes with an even more complex IT environment (telecom). He is a loyal colleague who is dedicated to his job and who you can trust. I surely recommend Gerrit as a colleague.
Gerrit managed to shape the IT department at T-Mobile into an organization that delivers. Large IT projects that have small chance of succeeding in similar sized organizations succeed at T-Mobile due to management commitment and focus. Employees and consultants are all part of the same team creating a highly motivating work environment.
In his roles as manager development and later as director Information systems he has been a decisive and focussed manager clearly understanding the needs and wishes of the business community. He has been able to shape the IS department at T-Mobile into a well organized, productive organization able to fullfil the set goals and targets. From a personal perspective I can recommend him as a pragmatic, loyal and supportive manager, who allowed me to learn and grow.
