Next to that, you support and challenge the Product Management and Application Support teams. This will ensure we develop the right solutions and features for the region concerned to realize substantial growth for both Nedap and our Business Partners.
It's an entrepreneurial and commercial role to grow the sales, to manage our regional teams and to establish genuine relationships with our valued Business Partners, while forging new connections aimed at growing our business.
