He is extremely inventive and proactive in his approach, and is aware of the priorities and restrictions that apply to business. He ought to be everyone’s first port of call in the Netherlands, and the only reason I am hesitant to suggest him is because we don’t want him to become too popular.” - WTR 1000 2023
