About Rick

Senior ICT architect and project manager with the ambition and experience to deliver project results on time and within agreed budget and quality criteria. I do this based on strategic goals and architecture, in close collaboration with all stakeholders. When conflicting interests arise, I reconcile these by using my listening skills, sensitivity, technical knowledge and creativity. This creates a win/win situation for all concerned and true support for the project from high to low. All this leads to a broad-based use of architecture and pays off with when it comes to user implementation and transition to the line organization and the realization of the benefits.

My leadership is led by the thought that professionals need just enough guidance to come to maturity. My technical know-how and background ensures credibility with my partners and with my style flexibility I am effective for ‘birds of different sorts’. I’m constantly looking for simplicity and transparency and therefor talk ‘plain language’. My passion is to connect people and information needs to technology and processes, and vice versa. This will enable the business to become more competitive and mean more for the (end) customers. I am a team player and like to deliver a positive contribution to the greater whole. Under the motto: We make IoT work!

Recently I’ve made this YouTube with my experiences, competencies, ambitions and drivers for the job application Business Architect Central Information Services @ the Municipality of Eindhoven.
