Taco Lens

Strategy & business developer | 10+ jaar werkervaring | Amsterdam
Complex challenges, growth & change. He likes to combine (commercial) strategy & business development with actual business implementation to drive the growth of an organisation. He aspires to not only look at topics conceptually but also to make them as concrete as possible to implement them and reach tangible results.  Taco’s approach to challenges is an analytical & structured manner. 

Fact driven market research is his preferred first step, and Taco thrives best when he functions as a spider in the web & advisor and is able to act as a connector. Taco aspires to work on both CEO/CFO as an operational level with various stakeholders to leverage his strong interpersonal and communication skills.
