Expertise | Network | Value In Payments
We started Connective Payments in 2014 because of our joint passion for payments and helping companies in the payments value chain create value for their business. We are “Connective” because we bring together the right expertise to help our customers grow and we leverage our network to help shape alliances and create fruitful customer and vendor relationships.
We are pleased to see that our approach of co-creation is working well to bring success to the organizations we serve. We act as team players and we leverage our industry knowledge within our customer’s team.
The story of Connective Payments is still evolving rapidly as we venture deeper into the payments value chain and use our expertise to help scale-ups grow and steer them in the right direction, as well as allowing established names to excel at operations and improve profitability and customer satisfaction.
We are Connective Payments, Value Creators in Payments.
As consultant in the payments value chain, clients rely on me to identify, create and implement solutions that create value for their company. I guide with new propositions and product development leading to business growth; I reduce complexity from idea generation to product delivery or vendor selection; I select the best business case and road ahead. As a co-creator, I enjoy working with your team, focused on actionable scenarios. Typical roles are; business or strategy consultant, product owner, interim product manager.
With a strong background and network in the international payments industry, I have performed assignments throughout the value chain. Specific areas of expertise include issuing and acquiring, PSP services, POS payments (EMV, NFC, QR) mobile payments, open invoice solutions, APM’s.
When not working for Connective Payments, I focus on my family and friends and actively grow my classic Citroen cars from 1960-1985 collection! Upgrading them, searching for parts and investigating their history is my main hobby. Sooner or later, I may write a book about Citroen in its golden age, the 60’s.
My customers note that the broad experience I gained over the years makes a real difference for their companies:
CEO (2017-2019): “Thanks for your great contribution to making next gen PayTech happen within our company!”
COO (2017-2019): “I have been impressed by the flair, energy and results Jeroen brought. I would highly recommend Jeroen to any organisation looking for successful change management and true value add.”
COO (2016-2017): “An excellent job restructuring the team, embedding the vision and strategy in the day-to-day operations and re-building the relationships with the global teams.”
Deputy Global CIO (2014-2015): “A strong commitment to success and sustainable results, driven by innovation and creativity.”
Having literally seen every corner of many companies in senior roles I have experienced what leadership, vision and focus bring: they pave the way for value creation. Having internalized a mindset of ‘distant involvement’ my management style is characterized by leadership, open mindedness and curiosity as a facilitator of organizational and personal growth. I help my customers achieve tangible and lasting results suited to their specific context.
I am gratefully embracing the gift of life in every situation. I feel challenged to create value in the lives of others. Hence my professional motto: “how rewarding it is to create value together!”.
I like to co-create and implement. Having worked for 30+ years in the payments industry, I have gained a deep expertise and an intensive international network. I worked in several roles at multiple companies of various sizes, as an individual as well as a team leader, both as employee and contractor, on the business as well as IT side, or in between.
I am result driven, perseverant, pragmatic, with a good sense of humour, strong communication skills, a sense of political environments, and always eager to learn. I am therefore able to create / co-create value and to implement new functionalities / product propositions. Working for Connective Payments with business partners who share the same values but different expertise, is absolutely great.
In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music (visit pinkpop.nl!), watching soccer, traveling, dining in a good restaurant, and spending time with my family.
