Bert van der Zwan: "I have a lot of experience with US and European software companies and have held both CEO and other leadership positions with EMEA responsibility. I know the business software market well. The credit management software market is an important and interesting part of it and it is clear that OnGuard has obtained an impressive market share. My goal is to contribute to further strengthening OnGuard’s position as market leader in this market, both in the Netherlands and beyond."
