Brian, Why did you decide to take up this challenge and join our Localyse team?
“I’m driven by innovation. That is the reason that I have been active for years in dynamic markets such as telecommunications and biotechnology. Both the organizational culture and the services of Localyse motivated me to make the move to Localyse.”
What intrigues you about Google?
“In my time in telecommunications, I witnessed the introduction of Google on our smartphones and watched them grow into today’s applications. At my previous employer we worked in Google Cloud including G-suite. I then experienced the convenience of Google Cloud Platform as a business solution in practice. Google continues to innovate itself and that keeps me interested and fascinated.”
What are your three favorite locations in the world?
“My three favorite locations have one thing in common; they are all coastal cities. The combination of the bustle of the city and the smell of the ocean is something that really appeals to me. I was born and raised in The Hague, a coastal city in the Netherlands. That similarity probably made me feel very much at home at these locations.”
What would you like to achieve within 1 year?
“It would be great to start a project with one of our customers that will forever (positively) change the way we do daily things. In addition, I mainly want to inspire companies and help them grow with our Google solutions.”
Kristel Dewit, HR Manager Localyse tells from her point of view:
“The first impression that Brian left was crucial for us: his open communication style and curiosity were decisive for us. His interest and experience in innovative technologies, data and IT convinced him to respond to our vacancy. So a win-win situation for both him and us to build a long-term cooperation. It’s great that we can expand our team with such a strong personality that takes responsibility for finding and offering the right solution and synergy with our customers.”
