Joost d’Hooghe – I am a strong believer of using positive energy and personal relationships to build lasting commercial partnerships. Applying a 90-10, “getting things done” approach.

My ambition is to build strategic alliances between winning organisations, either in executive commercial roles or as general manager. Working with agile and empowered teams with a focused approach (strategic accounts, push products, application leadership) and goal orientation (KPI’s, dashboards, accountability) resulted in >double digit growth in a stagnated European economy.
