    Laurens was my Sales Manager at Amtron Technolgies. Though at that time I not always appreciated his direct approach, it always was a pleasure working with him. Laurens was on top of every part of the sales proces, but never forgot to push the logistical distribution process to deliver his promise to the account. Laurens was in everyway a driving motivator to achieve targets. Coming from a different world of discipline, it was Laurens who taught and gave me insight of the selling trade
