Another Superstar Joins the Team

PersonMay 1st, 2015 marks an important milestone as we welcome Martijn Adams to the ITRP Institute. Martijn is one of the world's most experienced implementers of service management solutions for global enterprises. Over the past 15 years, Martijn has helped organizations like HeidelbergCement, the European Union, Danone, Alliance Healthcare, NATO and Deloitte with their multinational ITSM initiatives. Apart from his hands-on project involvement, he held a senior management position at InfraVision as the director of their ITSM & SIAM Practice.

Martijn AdamsAt the ITRP Institute, Martijn has now taken on the role of General Manager, EMEA. His primary focus is the success of the large ITRP deployments in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He will do this by making sure that our partners in this region have everything they need to deliver the benefits of ITRP to their customers.

Martijn's arrival provided an ideal moment to refine the management structure. As a result, Robin Roestenburg has become our Principal Software Engineer. Because this role comes with management responsibilities, he has joined the management team.

In addition, I have decided to hand over the reins of the company to Cor Winkler Prins. It was my pleasure to lead the ITRP Institute through its first 5 years, but now that the company has a solid financial foundation, more emphasis can be placed on the direction in which the service evolves. Cor Winkler Prins, who has been our VP Product Management from the start, is the best person for that.

Cor has accepted the CEO post and the responsibilities that come with it. This allows me to focus on the success of our customers and partners in North, Central and South America as the General Manager, Americas.
