Why was the Advisory Council established?
‘EZ Factory is a young and energetic company with a great deal of potential. In a setting like that, one is forced to make choices all the time. When it comes to strategy, it isn’t so much about what you will do, but all the more about what you will not. It is important to remain focused on the things that matter. Enthusiastic entrepreneurs benefit from the ability to spar with other experienced professionals. We do this on a regular basis, the Advisory Council and EZ Factory’s management meet around six times a year to discuss current and strategic challenges.’
Who are on the Advisory Council and what are their contributions?
‘The Advisory Council consists of three people. Paul de Kroon fulfilled various strategic roles over the past twenty-five years in the areas of finance and technology, such as CEO at RBS Turkey & Israel, President at KrypC and chair of the Supervisory Board at Knab. With this background, he brings a lot of knowledge, experience and an international network in those fields.
