We can hardly keep up

We can hardly keep up

At g-company we help organizations take the next step into the cloud. We have many great tools, software and hardware for that. But there is one pillar that really makes it possible and that is our people. Also our most valuable asset. Their knowledge, expertise and passion for the cloud help ensure that g-company has been able to grow so rapidly in recent years. Without our people, g-company would not exist, we would have no great customer success stories to share and much less fun.

Growth has been strong lately. So strong that it is hard to keep up. In the past two months, five new champs have started again, so it’s high time for our traditional introduction round!

 

Cor van Dusseldorp – Service Delivery Manager

“I live in Zoetermeer with my wife and our little daughter. 👨‍👩‍👧
We like to wake up for her, but otherwise I prefer to sleep through. In my spare time I travel, play checkers and read. 📚

I have been a customer of g-company in the past, and I enjoy working with Google products. In addition, I was looking for a company that is ambitious and on the move. I find both at g-company, where I have the role of Service Delivery Manager.”

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”

“For me, technology means: access to (meaningful) information, help to make life (work and private) easier, reducing distances and a commodity.”

Koen van Zuijlen – Cloud Data Engineer

“I live on my own in my house in Utrecht. In my spare time I like to play sports, watch series and movies. You can wake (/keep) me up at night to go into town (and luckily we can do that again!). The sports I do are badminton 🏸 (several times a week), cycling 🚴 (a few times a year) and fitness 🏋️‍♂️ (in a full-fledged home gym).

In my previous work I already worked a lot with Google Cloud. It seemed interesting to me to continue with this (at a higher level) at g-company. I am part of the Google Cloud Consultancy team. I can still go in all directions, but I started as a Cloud Data Engineer.”

“My BHAG is to eventually start working at Google.”

“I think tech is especially cool if I can use it to make my life a bit simpler/more sustainable. Finding the middle ground is often an interesting challenge.”

Marie-Laure Bols – monday.com Implementation Consultant

“My name is Marie-Laure Bols – Machine Learning for friends, or just ML 😉 – and I’m 28 years young! I live in the center of Antwerp in my brand new apartment in which my cousin rents a room, a girls apartment (and yes, our towels, blankets, slippers, pyjamas, pots and pans are pink and we are very happy with that)! 💖 I simply love life. My hobbies are almost exclusively on the water: sailing ⛵️ and kiting are two of my favourite leisure activities. In addition, I regularly go for a walk and I love to play the piano 🎹 (which is perhaps more of a passion than a hobby)! At night you don’t have to wake me up (unless it burns), otherwise just let me sleep. 😴

I chose g-company for several reasons. First of all, I like to help people, so consultancy seemed ideal to me. Secondly, I sincerely believe in the added value of g-company for any organization that does business with us. At g-company I know that I improve and facilitate people’s daily practice with a technology that I believe in myself.

Simple but so important: I want to keep developing and growing in every aspect of my life and be proud of something every day! 👏”

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. – Thomas A. Edison”

“Technology to me means progress and comfort. This is also what we offer our customers!”

Jeroen Colpaar – Customer Success Manager

“My name is Jeroen Colpaar and I am 45 years young. Together with my girlfriend and red cat ‘Mad’ Max 😼 I live in picturesque Amstelveen.

Before g-company I worked as a project manager at InTWO and did projects such as ‘Lift and Shift’ to the cloud, and virtualization processes (SaaS) of applications to the cloud. Before InTWO I worked at KPMG as a System Engineer. All in all, I think I’ve been active in IT for about 20 years. Time flies when you are having fun, they say. I love technology and I always find it super interesting to do projects where we are at the forefront of the latest developments.

Outside of work I like to be active and to do sports. I like to run 🏃🏻‍♂️, can often be found at the gym for fitness, yoga 🧘🏻‍♂️ and kickboxing (bag) training 🥊. When the weather is nice, I also like to jump on the racing bike 🚴🏻‍♂️ for a nice ride. Furthermore, I am a real movie lover and I like to go to the cinema 🍿. The last movies I’ve seen are James Bond ‘No time to die’, ‘The French Dispatch’ and ‘House of Gucci’. I also love watching series: Seinfeld, Cobra Kai, Undercover and I am watching the ‘Impeachment’. Furthermore, I also like to travel 🧳 and I go to Ibiza almost every year 😎. When the festival season starts again, I like to go there too. 🤘

At the end of 2021 I was approached by a recruiter and it made me enthusiastic from the start. g-company as a company and Google as a cloud provider appealed to me. The people I spoke to at g-company were nice and sincere and I could see myself working with them and achieving beautiful things together.

My mantra is ‘better together’. I believe in teamwork and I also get a lot of energy when beautiful things arise through good cooperation.”

“Business wise I want to become a successful Customer Success Manager in the near future and privately the New York Marathon is still on my bucket list.”

“I am a bit of a techno geek: I like to play with gadgets and I enjoy working on innovative projects.”

Martijn Boer – Support Jedi

“I have lived in The Hague for nine years now, although in recent years I can also often be found in Amsterdam and now Diemen, where my girlfriend has moved to about a year ago. In my spare time I am very much involved with video games 🕹, board games 🎲 and I also like to read books 📚. I also like to jump on my bike 🚴🏻‍♂️ to keep moving a bit and escape the city to some greener environments. 🌳

After some years of experience with both Google Workspace and Windows/Office 365, I still preferred the former. I really enjoy guiding the transition to and managing Google Workspace environments. g-company therefore seems to me to be the right place to expand the knowledge and experience gained and to further grow in working with what Google has to offer.

I am part of the support team, where my focus is mainly on support in Google Workspace. I want to become as useful as possible in the team, as soon as possible. In addition, I especially want to figure out which direction I would like to go in and develop further in that direction.”

“It’s very cliché, but in learning to deal with Drive I have often used/misused the Spiderman quote, ‘with great power, comes great responsibility’. But it is still a good one.”

“For me personally, technology means facilitating and making many things easier in (daily) life as well as providing a lot of fun in my free time. Life without it would be quite uncomfortable these days.”


Welcome to our team! We are happy to have you on board and wish you lots of fun and success at g-company!
