The Netherlands off to a flying start
Despite a pressured and competitive European market, the new ProData Consult branch office in the Netherlands is already so busy, that a new account manager has been hired.
ProData Consult opened the doors of its branch office in the Netherlands 1 January with Toine van Kastel in charge as Country Manager. Toine has already built a solid client and consultant database, and the client’s are showing so much interest that it has been necessary to employ a new account manager, Boris Merkelbach, a Bachelor in Business Administration who has been working with IT in the hotel industry, to help with demand. The two are now our local sales team in the office in Gorinchem. All back office services are being managed by the head office in Denmark.
Former franchise in the Netherlands
This is ProData Consult’s second entry to the Netherlands. Prior to 2010, there was a licensed ProData- franchise, but the owner lost their license due to bankruptcy in October 2010.
At the time, the Dutch ProData Consult was a successful enterprise. Accordingly, ProData Consult is eager to recreate the success with the help of Toine van Kastel, who managed the ProData franchise under the former owners.
