Frank started working with us in October 2015, as a pre-sales manager his task was to work with potential customers and see how their case could fit the platform. Through time and experimenting he realized he wanted something more strategic and focused on implementation, that’s how he grew into his role as our CSM.
It’s actually quite an interesting story of how Frank ended up at Capptions. For his graduation at Twente University, Frank interned at TNO, a dutch research company doing studies on maritime safety. At the same time, TNO was doing a project with Capptions (Safety Changer, at the time), and that’s how Frank got to know the company!
In his free time, he runs 2 to 3 times a week, plays tennis, makes music, and loves to read. Frank likes the work/life balance that Capptions offer because even on busy days in the office he gets time for himself. He brings a really good atmosphere into the office with his dry sense of humor and is easy to talk to.
Frank was born in a little village called Holten, in the eastern part of the Netherlands. His parents still live there, so he visits once in a while. He likes the big city life in Rotterdam with lots of cultural activities, but if he were to choose a place to go back to it would be Banff, a small town in Canada.
