My electronics background was best invested at Motorola where i started as their Benelux distribution manager.

After moving to Toulouse in 1994, I ended up as Motorola’s EMEA Business Manager and at a later stage Global Director, Pricing, Processes & Systems.

Had a tremendous time and probably learned those things that drove my career from that point on.

Great collegues, a tremendous people and quality attitude and … true teamwork that drove the semiconductor sector to great successes.

At a later stage, the semiconductor sector got split into standard products (today ON Semiconductor) and proprietary high tech products (what became Freescale, currently part of NXP Semiconductor).
