As cloud adoption continues to accelerate, I am incredibly excited to be a part of the Leaseweb team and assist organisations looking to bolster their IT environments”.
Con Zwinkels, CEO at Leaseweb Global, said: “Leaseweb was founded and is currently headquartered in the Netherlands and therefore the Netherlands is at the heart of everything we do. It was incredibly important to us that the right person was selected to head up the Dutch entity and Pieter’s extensive experience will be an asset for the company moving forward. He has a well-established career in the technology sector, as well as a proven track record of excellent leadership and sales abilities.
