Business Development

Commercial Director

Maarten Boot

“My definition of commercial effectiveness is the whole of personality, curiosity and integrity and showing a genuine interest in each other.”

My role is to support customer success for our present- and future customers to achieve their goals. Key responsibilities are to make sure we onboard customers ‘first time right’ and stand by our relations to advise how ‘best’ looks like and act accordingly. In my spare time, I enjoy various sports (indoor and outdoor activities) like tennis, walking, fitness. I value excellent espresso or ristretto and, as ultimate relaxation, preparing Italian specialities for family & friends. Buon appetito!

Engineering Lead

Bart van den Berg

“You learn something new everyday if you pay attention.”

In my role as ‘Engineering Lead’, I determine the technical direction and future of the platform and the processes surrounding it together with a team of professionals. I am constantly looking at how we can improve and scale existing functionality, and add new cool features to our platform! In my spare time, I like to fire up the barbecue with friends and you can often find me at the cinema or on a terrace!

Backend Developer

Dave van den Berg

“A son asked his father (a programmer) why the sun rises in the east, and sets in the west. His response? It works, don’t touch!”

In my role as backend developer, I devise and develop new functionalities that make it easier for users to collect consent. I also optimise existing functionalities and work on integrations with the platform. I am always looking for new smart technologies to use within Optinsight. In my spare time I enjoy gaming with friends and going on holiday.

“Algorithm: Word used by programmers when they don’t want to explain what they did.”

Since the start of Opt-insight, I have been working as a backend developer, devising and developing new software solutions within the platform, with which users can collect and manage consent more easily. In my spare time I like to go to the woods with my dog Jara, and I love cooking and dining.

Product

Product Director

Erik Luttik

“Be critical, never stop asking questions!”

I have a long career in the pharmaceutical industry. Since 1982 I worked for Gist-brocades, Searle, Boehringer-Ingelheim and Chiesi. I was also involved in two, very successful partnerships with Pfizer and Lilly. I started my career as an international market researcher, worked as strategy manager and then moved to marketing as a product manager (Gist-brocades). After having worked as marketing (& sales) manager (Searle), he joined Boehringer-Ingelheim as Business Unit Manager Specialty care. My next step was Marketing Director, which I combined with Head of Commercial Operation (Netherlands and MIDI). In these last roles, I was , amongst other things, responsible for the digital transformation process, involving knowledge building, implementing the right tools and techniques and most important of all coaching the people involved into the right direction. The challenge was to make people realize, that by adding another (digital) channel in the right way, their efforts and investments were more effective. In my free time, I likes to cycle (MTB and race bike), to spend time on the water in my “sloep” and to work in the garden.

Business Analyst

Myrte Schippers

“None of us are as smart as all of us”

Where OptInsight is connecting platforms and data, I aim to connect people and their expertises. I function as a bridge between people to bring pieces of knowledge together. What I love about my job is that I get to learn something new every day, and see things from different perspectives. I like a challenge, and that’s not only limited to my professional life. In my free time I like to be challenged too – preferably to a game of volleyball on the beach.

Customer Support Specialist

Nienke Hagens

“Hands on, practical and pragmatic”

I have a long career in support, mostly CRM systems related, whether it was supporting the internal organization or delivering support to external customers. For the last 20+ years I have worked as part of or for pharmaceutical companies.
I am the proud owner of a slightly obese fell pony with whom I made an attempt at dressage and likes to hack out in the lovely surroundings of Bergen, where I live.

Business Analyst

Huub Kant

“Bridging the gap between life science and IT”

I have been working in health and life science IT for the past 8 years. My goal: to use software to enable healthcare and life science professionals to do their work better and more efficiently. There is a wealth of data available, how can we make best use of this data to achieve our goals? At OptInsight I work as Business Analyst to align software development with the needs of the customer in the best possible way. I have always been interested in personal data policies in the medical field since I needed to learn more about HIPPAA when doing biomedical research in the USA (at Johns Hopkins) and it continued to be important when working in life science IT. Outside work I like to play sports and to spend time with my family and friends.

“It is exciting to be closely involved in the growth of a business that truly adds value to its clients. OptInsight’s product is already attracting a lot of industry attention.”

I worked in change management and compliance within the financial sector for over ten years. As member of the Board of Directors of the payments provider Mollie, I helped the company grow from a small startup to an international scale up. In my 2021 book ‘Via Mollie’ I detailed the astronomical growth of the company. I continue to work with startups to grow their business and I frequently speak on innovation, product development and entrepreneurship.
