mentors-header

Leo holds a PhD in Business Administration with a focus on technology and organization. He considers himself a shaper of companies and has a passion for building strong and sustainable organizations. Before Leo joined Mazars, he was founding member and COO at VIGOUR, an international media-tech company in Amsterdam. VIGOUR claimed a significant global share in the fast growing market for online video distribution technology and eventually got acquired by a larger competitor early 2018. Prior to that, Leo already had 15 years of corporate leadership and consulting experience under the belt. He ran an international transformation program at Coca-Cola, and during his time at itelligence AG led countless projects in the SAP space for clients across Europe and North America.


At leAD, Leo wants to make an impact on how participating startups shape their structure and processes, how they set up their operational procedures and systems to both be able to get a grip on their growing company and to deliver clarity on financial needs, plans, reports and overall achievements. He also wants to help founders understand and handle and balance diverse shareholder interest.
