Lucas McGregor (Head of Products and Technology at ZEAL Group)
Peter-Paul is highly competent. He is the rare combination of being able to operate at the details and to manage complexity; and also being able to drive strategy and create a clear vision. He combines intelligence and strategic vision with tenacity and creative problem solving. I worked with him on a multi-year effort to introduce new products into regulated markets. None of it would have been possible without his leadership, can-do attitude, and skills. He tops it all off by also being one of the nicest people to work with.
Sebastian Blohm (Global Head of CLA at ZEAL Group)
Peter-Paul is one of the most capable in his area! Strong in strategic thinking as well as in day-to-day execution. He is also a great networker. The fact that he is just a nice guy, probably helps. I always enjoyed working with him very much.
Rolf Slotboom (Communications & Policy at Center of Responsible Gaming)
Peter-Paul has had a huge impact for the public image of (until recently) unlicensed online operators/lotteries in the Netherlands. Because of his excellent people skills and his likeability, he quickly found his way into the lobby circuit, talking to politics & government, emphasising the responsible gaming goals of the company and then actually sticking to them. By doing this, Peter-Paul played a crucial role in acquiring a license for innovative lottery Lottovate/ZEAL/Raffld
Bart Heinink (Director Regulatory & Access Strategy at T-Mobile/Online Breedband)

Guido van Hattum (Head of Data Centre Sales Benelux at BT Global Services)

Peter-Paul is able to explain complex issues at a high or low level and interfaces at all levels with ease. I would have no hesitation recommending Peter-Paul and would be happy to work with him again in the future.
Bernard Uyttendeale (CFO Orange NL)
Peter-Paul has been essential in developing and implementing the Wholesale Transit & Interconnect business at Orange which contributed significantly to our turnover and profitability. He is able to interact at different levels in an organisation and to do so in different cultures.

I recommend Peter-Paul highly to anyone who is looking for can-do entrepreneur and an expert in the interconnect-legal field.
Brechtje Molenaar (Business Engineer at Telfort / O2)
Peter-Paul is capable of taking the broader view, overlooking impact and consequences beyond the boundaries of his own department or limitations of his own responsibility. Most of the time he is at least one step ahead of others, nevertheless always willing to explain matters to those who are interested in but less familiar with the subject. He pays attention to people as well as to business. In short: he is a valuable colleague and a good person.
