Barneveld, 27 March 2020 – Robert Pijselman (53) and Marcel Karssen (58) have been appointed to the Supervisory Board of Mansystems and FlowFabric. In addition to supervision, they will fulfil the roles of sounding board and inspirer, focusing on realising the growth potential. Robert has the role of chairman and Marcel acts as a sounding board in his role as supervisory director. Robert and Marcel join Crevan O’Grady and Joerg Klasmeyer, completing the Supervisory Board. Together they will be advising the new organisation that was created after the merger of Mansystems and FlowFabric at the beginning of March.
With the expansion of the Supervisory Board with Robert and Marcel, the Supervisory Board is well represented in various areas.
Robert brings to the table valuable experience to take the new organisation to the next level. In recent years he has held the position of CEO and investor in various IT and telecoms companies. He has also held and continues to hold positions on the supervisory boards of various organisations. For example, he is currently also active as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Software Improvement Group and PQR. Marcel brings 40 years of experience to the table, of which 30 years in financial and operational management positions in the software industry. His experience with the low-code platform Mendix, in particular, is of great added value. He worked there as CFO, with responsibility for finance, legal, HR, recruitment and IT.
Robert Pijselman on his appointment: “The combination of Mansystems’ technical knowledge and FlowFabric’s market-oriented approach offers the opportunity to develop high-quality solutions for various markets. The companies offer a good mix of talent, knowledge and skills in a world that is using more and more low-code applications. I’m looking forward to supporting the teams with the knowledge and experience that has been brought together in the Supervisory Board”.
Marcel Karssen: “Mansystems and FlowFabric are both fast-growing Mendix partners, and in my time at Mendix it was a pleasure to work with them. I was therefore immediately delighted when I heard about the merger of the two companies. Together, these businesses can achieve even more success. I look forward to contributing to their further success and supporting management as an advisor”.
Arnold Zwart: “As CEO of Mansystems and FlowFabric, I am very pleased with the appointment of both gentlemen to the Supervisory Board. They are of great added value with the knowledge and experience they bring to the table. There was an immediate click and a sense of familiarity.
