Valk Solutions has brought an experienced chief technology officer (CTO) on board. Wido Riezebos (52) has earned his spurs as founder of transporter Eyefreight and Head of software development for Supply Chain and Logistics at Sainsbury’s – Argos in the UK. At family business Valk Solutions, Wido will lead the further development and technical renewal of the portfolio.
Karin Valk, general manager of Valk Solutions: “We have grown rapidly and we have the ambition to continue to grow for the coming years. This requires continuous investments in maintenance and innovation, whereby we always use new techniques. The complexity is increasing, because for more and more customers we can also work in the e-commerce and logistics domain in addition to the point of sale domain. That is why we looked for a solid CTO to set out the right lines for the future. Wido brings exactly the experience we need and has a pleasant combination of technical knowledge and hands-on leadership.”
Wido Riezebos, CTO at Valk Solutions since 1 March: “I immediately saw plenty of opportunities and that good feeling only got stronger in the first weeks. There is a lot of energy here and an enormous customer focus, which appeals to me very much. The size and complexity of the software also provide a playing field where I feel very much at home. The short term mission is to become well acquainted with the entire domain. Then we will continue in the field of both technical and functional innovation; the roadmap for 2021 and beyond is going to look good!”
Wido is currently training himself as the new CTO and will soon also be meeting customers. Welcome Wido, we wish you the job of your dreams at Valk Solutions.
