Introducing: 3 new faces!

Introducing: 3 new faces!

The Spark team has recently been strengthened with three new colleagues: Ruud Schatorjé, Oussama El Koubai and Brian Khouw, all three talented team players. We are pleased to introduce them to you; that way you’ll know what issues you can challenge them with.

July 5, 2016

Ruud (engineer with twinkling eyes)

Ruud Schatorjé is known for his sense of humour and his Limburg accent. And he is a trendsetter; he rode on a 'fixie' when the gang were busy with a simple back pedal brake. But above all he is a solid and driven engineer.

Manufacturability and cost are high on his priority list. Without compromising quality in terms of design and use.  “I come from a real manufacturing environment and have a background in the production of sheet metal work. This experience will stand me in good stead here. I want to make clients happy with clever usability solutions.”

And with a twinkle in his eyes: “I recently placed a light and weight sensor in my sofa: when I sit on it, the light goes on, and when I stand up, the light goes off again.”

Oussama (financial spider in the web)

Oussama El Koubai is the man in charge of the agenda and the wallet. With a background in Accountancy and work experience in various places at KPMG, Oussama ensures that the administration of all our products is robust and secure.

"I felt immediately at home thanks to the atmosphere and mutual relationships with colleagues.”

Brian (visual cocktail shaker)

Brian Khouw is a young, talented designer hot off the press! He has the kind of ‘hands-on’ attitude that we love. Empathetic Brian chooses inspiring design directions, matching social trends, target group, interaction, meaning and image. He nimbly turns his ideas into quality, photo-realistic visualizations. Important for creating support among stakeholders or for optimizing sales.

In his own words, Brian can be compared to a cocktail shaker: “Design is about identifying key parameters and making the appropriate concessions when you bring these together. Some drinks taste perfect when they are not mixed, but awful when they are. Just like making a good cocktail, the art of design is about selection and balance.”

Cheers!
