The unique Frank

Frank painted "Come to the dark side, we have cookies" on a room wall in his house. By pushing the boundaries, leaving comfort zones, viewing from the outside in, daring to question the status quo, Frank invigorates creativity in himself and his environment. Innovation and co-creation without hierarchical constraints make him tick.

It is no surprise that Frank admires Elon Musk because he dares to go where no man has gone before.

Frank likes to do sports as long as it is not solo, like volleyball, padel, squash, mountain biking, running, etc. His reading preference is eclectic, from philosophy over leadership to marketing and strategy. On his nightstand currently lies Alan Greenspan's 'Capitalism in America: A History.'

Being long aware of how much fulfillment he gets from helping others grow, Frank already has mentoring under his belt. And he looks forward to sparring with a new mentee.

  • “Frank helped me multiple times with very concrete tasks (eg. reviewing slides to make sure the message is brought well). This is something I really appreciated. Colleagues often complimented me on things that directly resulted from the mentoring and tips I received from him. He also made me realize that personal improvement is something you have to take time for. I learned to stand still for a moment to reflect on what I was doing and how I could improve. Frank never assumed things and asked for more concrete examples if I was struggling with something so he could give the right and relevant feedback.“
