MARKET ENTRY – Derk Smid will help you to successfully start & run your business in Germany and other major European countries.
“Business is all about people.”As a Dutchman being born in Norway and then living for periods of about 5 years in Pretoria (South Africa), Buenos Aires (South America), Los Angeles (North America) and several European countries he has learned to respect other cultures, values and viewpoints. Very often righteousness is in the eye of the beholder. This flexibility and interest in people and “what makes them tick” has made Derk a very successful business leader in various different industries, technologies and markets.
Derk’s career focus has been mainly on Innovation and International Sales & Marketing.
He has led many projects into commercial success through learning the markets, establishing strong cooperation partnerships and motivating the different departments to work together.
Having worked over 25 years in large multinationals such as Dow Corning, Advanced Elastomers Systems (ExxonMobil) and Altana, Derk decided to join a small Direct Marketing Company and run one of their subsidiaries in France. During the last 10 years he successfully built the UK market for the company and worked on a few very exciting start-ups such as his own consulting business and the German market introduction of the Brain Control Device developed by LiquidWeb s.r.l.
Since the end of 2016 Derk has decided to fully focus on his consulting firm to support companies that want to enter the European market.
