I ‘ve in-depth knowledge on new product development processes, new product definition and introduction and worked as international product manager and project manager for various multinationals such as Bosch Security Systems, Philips Lighting, Philips Consumer Lifestyle, Brabantia, Cordstrap, Thomas Regout International, GEA International GmBH.
