Nick Geijs – Project manager HP
“During the past year I’ve worked together with Leo on serveral Robeco projects:
• Robeco disaster/recovery with Coin
• 3rd party migration (including implementation of a new Reuters solution)
Leo was my Robeco counterpart and the overall lead of these projects. I have to say
it was a pleasure to work with Leo because on all 3 projects Leo has shown the necessary effort,
drive and maturity to lead! Leo is always able to keep the focus on a project when it tends to slip.
Besides that his meeting and follow-up skills are remarkable.
Because of these assets we were able to book the necessary progress week after week!
When a project does tend to slip, Leo was prepared to go the extra mile! Together with our teams
we successfully went through a lot of long change weekends, using efficient web collaboration tools.
The changes during these weekends were very critical for both Robeco (customer) and HP (supplier).
Both as a person as well as a senior project manager I highly recommand Leo”

“I’ve worked with Leo on the project to implement IP telephony at Robeco. I’ve experienced Leo
as a very dedicated and hands-on project manager who focusses on delivering project results.
In this project he succesfully replaced the old telephony envrionment by IP telephony
and made sure that the anticipated savings were realized.”

Ton van Gaalen – Team Lead Change Robeco
“Over a period of just a few months Leo has managed to recover an infrastructure project that
was way of target. Under very challenging circumstances and against the odds he really came
through and delivered more then expected. He’s pro-active, hands-on with an eye for the
big picture and he covers those easily overlooked but important details.
As a project manager I consider Leo highly recommended.”

Hans Sluijter – Senior Projectmanager Robeco
“Leo proved to be a result driven project manager, with strong capabilities in relationship and
stakeholder management. Supported by a thorough theoretical background (Prince & IPMA),
Leo manages to apply a practical approach throughout the process, without him losing sight of
the goal of the project. Leo encourages people for better results and Leo manages to create
a pleasant atmosphere within the project.
I particularly like Leo’s attitude of considering the glass half full, instead of half empty.”
