In 2005, TomTom listed on Euronext Amsterdam. It turned to Taco to set up an investor relations team and he seized the chance to join one of Europe’s great tech success stories. TomTom’s energized, self-reliant culture fitted him like a glove. In time, he added new responsibilities, including treasury (2010) and group control (2012).
On becoming CFO in 2015, Taco gained legal, tax and accounting responsibilities and a deeper connection to the business. But he still finds time to listen to his teams, travelling the world to deliver TomTom’s open and optimistic message. By constantly reassessing his people, processes and technology, Taco helps TomTom to stay on its toes, ready to jump on new opportunities.
Taco complements his roles as CFO and member of the Management Board by taking part in the Ministry of Economic Affairs Chief Economist Roundtable, the University of Amsterdam Executive Master of Finance & Control Advisory Board and other forums.
