Walter is also available for management assignments in traditional consumer electronics or other areas of innovation, both in the corporate as in the public arena. He is highly experienced in establishing deep, longlasting business relationships, identifying and creating opportunities, and unlocking new revenue streams. He has worked with and learned from the best in the business (such as Hans Breukhoven, legendary founder of Free Record Shop) - and has seen the CE/IT business unfold and transform - whilst he coached and guided a new generation of professionals.
Walter has been active in various international management positions in various European organisations. Over the years he managed sales & marketing teams, in various set-ups and organisational structures across geographies and has thus been working with many different nationalities, actively embracing diversity.
As an added experience Walter also saw through organisational restructures to align financial expectations with market-circumstances. Rehashing the talent-pool, reducing operating expenses and refocusing activities: had to be done to become future-proof.
He is highly sensitive for market (tech-) trends and Voice-of-Customer.
His most rewarding accomplishment: setting up unique and innovative multi-disciplinary partnerships across industries and markets, such as the cooperation involving both blue chip multi-national corporations (Bayer Chemical, The World Bank) and an upcoming, now major music-artist (DJ TIESTO).
