Your guide through marketing technology
I have been part of the first generation who grew up with the internet and I saw the potential of this technology growing. In 2007 I started out as Drupal developer and I gained deep knowledge on technical and functional aspects of how the internet could help organisations in the creation of beter customer relations through websites and digital experiences.
With this website during 2007-2014 I contributed a lot of knowledge about Drupal. At its peak, the Drupal-blog on this website had more than 10000 unique visitors a month from all over the world. As a software engineer it was important to contribute to opensource and share knowledge. I'm a published author at Pelckmans publishing with the book: "Aan de slag met Drupal 8".
In 2013 I founded together with Steven Pepermans Dropsolid because we saw organisations were in need of a company that could make digital business easier for them. Our company grew in a short time span to 65 people and we helped lots of customers like Soudal, TVH, Teamleader, Lotus Bakeries, Kinepolis, Boerenbond, Gezinsbond, ERA, and lots of SMBs to build their digital customer experiences.
Within Dropsolid I have the role of CEO and I'm responsible for the vision, mission, values, finances and roadmap of the company. The first 2 years I had the role of CTO. The years after I was responsible for sales and marketing. Steven & I succeeded in building a fantastic team around us. As a consequence of this the company grew 30% each year.
I reinvented myself during these years. This big scope required me to build a large skillset. With these skills, I guide customers through the marketing technology universe. It is a complex landscape that requires knowledge of marketing, technology and business.
