    Willem was my first boss in the IT business and provided all facilities to become a professional. As my mentor, I am still gratefull for his patience and attention and most of all I admire his ‘can-do’ attitude. It was great having been part of his team.

    It was a great experience to work with Willem. It is Willem who was my first teacher in IT and I really learnt a lot! I know Willem as a very smart and very dedicated person and he is a real entrepeneur. It was really fun working for him!
