“From day one I have been appointed as CEO of FP Instruments. As FPI has a relatively flat structure I am responsible for most of the management activities. My ambition is to lead a creative group of engineers and project managers delivering successful products for our clients. Experience gained at TUE in Eindhoven and during work in Denmark gave me a good insight into Western Europe business and R&D culture. I use that experience every day.”

“When a new project starts I am the person who is responsible for defining the starting point and giving the right direction to successful product development. My job is to fully define the product scope, mainly all technological features, clear development steps with milestones and finally design activities for the team. One could say that I am the person who not only plans but also integrates the world of firmware and hardware development in our company.”

“Hardware is my passion. It was during my studies at the university when I found out that I am a hardware enthusiast and, for me, generating lines of code is not exciting. My main role in FPI is hardware design with stress being put on PCB routing. I fully enjoy the moment when the product concept finally comes to life, when I give it a body and then pass it to the firmware people so they can give it a soul.”

„Ever since I began high school, embedded systems have been my passion. It was the idea that I could create something from virtually nothing  – starting with designing electronics, through making it become real by routing PCB, and finally giving it life by creating firmware – this is what I fell in love with. Since then almost everything I have done is, in one way or another, related to the embedded world.”
