About Hans Peter Evers
Seasoned Non-Executive Director, executive, (digital) entrepreneur, transition manager
Partner in growth, who substantiates tranquility, structure and a clear overview during hectic times
The people around me know me as a builder of bridges. As a seasoned executive and (digital) entrepreneur I connect interests and people to create mutual success for all involved, with eye for all stakeholders.
As a former CEO/business owner myself, I know from personal experience that it can be a struggle to find the right direction during the frantic times that accompany a fast-growing organization. Since 1990 I have been involved in launching various innovative business concepts and start-ups. Like being at the forefront of the first concepts regarding interactive television. Also, I founded and successfully developed my own ‘web based’ (SAAS) metering company. And in those frantic times I also made my own mistakes.
Controlled change processes (transitions) have always fascinated me and actually all my career I have done nothing else. With a central theme: “How does one persuade people to start moving?” Over the years I have helped revitalize and grow many businesses. Along the way I have encountered a large variety of situations. As a transition manager, I have worked with family owned businesses, private equity owned businesses and listed corporations; helping them with turnarounds, mergers & acquisitions, international growth, as well as the purchasing and selling of (parts of) companies.
In short, besides my digital experience, my track record includes business management as well as sales management and marketing in business to business markets. I can also offer you insights into talent assessment and cultural change. My strength lies in connecting (ICT) technology, business and people. My background in ICT provides a firm foundation for digital transformation programs.
Through ten years of international sales experience I developed a good sense of intercultural differences and how to work with them effectively. Not only was I responsible for a French business unit, for several businesses I have actively been involved in sales & marketing management in Europe and the United States, setting-up an international network or the acquisition of companies and business development.
Often, I hear that I am able to connect people who are polar opposites and to deploy their competences optimally. I believe in the power of individual talents and know we need them for the business. Providing context and perspective to participants – what role do they play? – I succeed in motivating them.
With a master’s degree in Biophysics I am based in Zeist, The Netherlands. Dutch is my mother tongue, and I am able to do business in English, German and French.
