Since December 1, Marnix van den Berge has joined the Solid team as Account Manager! He has a solid foundation in the recruitment world and we are very happy to welcome him!
Marnix started studying Computer Science followed by Commercial Economics. After his studies, he first worked as a recruiter for 10 years, and then grew to a management position. After 10 years, he wanted to work more with IT and discovered not only the size of the recruitment industry, but also the enormous diversity of IT suppliers within the industry. Thus, Marnix started within the recruitment software where he worked for one of the major parties for years.
Achieving commercial results is a large motivation for Marnix. Accomplish maximum turnover and margin with minimal resources, setting an even better result every year is what he strives for. Honesty and transparency are very important in this regard. Marnix indicates that most products don’t need to be made more beautiful than they are. The more real and honest you are, the better the relationship with your customers eventually becomes.
A good relationship with your customers is very important, especially because the operation of software partly depends on the people who use the software. Although the product is always the same, it is people who work with the product and with whom you have conversations. Marnix is challenged to manage all this.
Teamwork is of paramount importance at Solid. Because a strong team also delivers strong results. For Marnix, the definition of a team is a group of people pursuing the same goal. In addition, the atmosphere within the team is very important. The combination of working on the same end result and also having fun with each other is the basis of a good team, according to Marnix. This is therefore something he will pursue within Solid.
Solid Online is growing enormously, the demand for interfaces between software packages continues to increase. Marnix indicates that this is an interesting moment to join Solid. As an Account Manager, he is looking forward to making a substantive contribution to the growth of the company, both in the Netherlands and internationally. But because of his management experience, he can also make a difference in the impact of growth on the organization. Growth brings new challenges. Like organizing, standardizing processes and thinking about scalability. Marnix finds the transition from a small to a medium-sized to perhaps a large company in the future very interesting and he likes to contribute ideas.
With Marnix, Solid can altogether welcome an experienced and motivated employee. Welcome to Solid, Marnix!
