After 4.5 years working for multinationals, Quintus concluded that running and managing a company should be done radically different. Based on the ideas of Ricardo Semler, where each individual must have maximum autonomy executing and experiencing their work, him and Niek started an organisation based on the values love, trust and transparency. Within Foryard, Quintus is responsible for Business Development, Finance, Software Development and Marketing. Before starting the company Foryard, he joined Heineken in Congo, Africa. Afterwards he worked at Pon Holdings first as a Management Trainee, later as Director Project Management in Louisiana, USA. His knowledge lies in creating and restructuring new organisations. The end goal is to build an international network of Software Innovation Labs, to influence social entrepreneurship on a worldwide scale. More power to the individual.
Before joining Quintus and founding Foryard, Niek was active at the University of Utrecht and LOI. At the LOI, Niek tutored students following the courses mind mapping and speed learning. At the University, he guided honours students. Also, Niek taught at the Utrecht Center for Entrepreneurship for a year, an initiative of the UU, here he tutored 20 young entrepreneurs. Together with the team at Foryard, he builds innovative software solutions for governments and businesses. Niek is also involved in setting up external innovation labs within companies, implementing SCRUM, business development and building strong and inspiring teams.
