It was a pleasure to work with Jack, as he helped us to get things organized and most importantly – DONE. When necessary he dove into the process & technical details and worked with the subject matter experts to get things sorted out. He helped us to build bridges between Marketing, IT and vendors. Although Jack is informal, easy going and enjoys a joke, he takes ownership and is very serious about his responsibilities and deliverables. His performance was outstanding and as soon as the project ended we found him a next big program to help us with. I would, definitely, recommend Jack for any large and complex program.
Efficiency, ownership and a huge drive to help are the words which flash in my mind when I think about Jack. Not to forget his pleasant character and good sense of humour. I hired Jack for 15 months to help shape the eCRM program for Signify (Philips Lighting), more specifically representing and managing the eCRM automation application portfolio & related integrations and processes with IT. His contribution has been instrumental for where the program is today. I would definitely recommend to have a cup of coffee with Jack if you are looking for someone to manage a, complex, marketing automation program.
I worked with Jack in a rebranding project. Before we could start with rebranding we were dealing with adoption resistance amongst senior stakeholders. Topics as brand, identity, reasons to rebrand were not a given. Jack helped us using excellent persuasive storytelling with examples from many projects he led.
He is an expert with top-notch execution on both strategic and pragmatic level when situations demand this. He excels in resolving complex problems, always starting from a helicopter view.
Although he is serious about his work, he gives an air of lightness to complex situations. Jack is a warm and wonderful person and I hope we will have the opportunity to again work on a big project together someday.

Jack is a great asset to any team based on his work ethic and go-getter demeanor. I had the opportunity to work alongside him on planning the initiation phase of an omnichannel inquiry management process project. He is well-versed in understanding the business needs and technical intricacies and provides optimal solutions for best results. Highly recommend working with Jack as he offers many beneficial skills!
You have applied a clear project organisation and reporting structure. As you challenged project goals and approaches, clarified circumstances and dependencies, aligned with management and by driving pogress, people came up with solutions. The projects were successfully executed. The Executive Board unanimously appreciated your efforts and they were sorry that you left. I enjoyed working with you.
Jack is a strategist and able to determine and describe how to achieve the various goals. He is alert on details but without losing the overall objective. At the same time he is conscientious, accurate, and a very fine person to work with.
Jack was responsible for setting up a international IT organisation for the Despec Group. He succeeded to structure this organisation and was able to “sell”this structure to all subsidiaries. I know Jack as a very driven (sometime even “to” driven) personality.
Jack is a real professional with good analytic and communication skills with expertise on branding and knowledge of impact on business and IT. I can recommend Jack for every (re)branding jobs.
