I am hap­py to announce that effec­tive May 13th, 2019, George Koun­tar­das will join CAPLINQ’s Team as our new Prod­uct Man­ag­er. Work­ing full time out of our offices in Heemskerk, Nether­lands, George will intro­duce new prod­ucts and sup­port our exist­ing prod­uct line.

I am your stereotypical nerd, forever asking questions and reverse engineering whatever I can get my hands on to figure out how things work.

George holds a Mas­ter of Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Sheffield (UK) and has exten­sive expe­ri­ence with project man­age­ment and spe­cial­ized inter­na­tion­al trans­porta­tion.

George moved to the Nether­lands 2 years ago, look­ing for new chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties. He applied to CAPLINQ because of its inter­na­tion­al appeal and after inter­view­ing agreed to join after learn­ing about how this ambi­tious com­pa­ny has a direct impact on the devel­op­ment and advance­ment of new tech­nolo­gies.

In his free time, George con­tin­ues to exper­i­ment with new tech­nol­o­gy. He enjoys PC build­ing, gam­ing and comics. He also enjoys watch­ing medieval and sci-fi movies, lis­ten­ing and play­ing music, and walk­ing his dog. An avid trav­el­er, George has a goal to step foot in every coun­try in the world.

George to support all product lines

Key to this role will be to under­stand all the prod­ucts CAPLINQ offers and to find the unique sell­ing propo­si­tion of each that allows cus­tomers to find solu­tions to their engi­neer­ing chal­lenges.

Orga­ni­za­tion­al­ly, George will report to the Busi­ness Devel­op­ment Engi­neer but will inter­act with all depart­ments as he intro­duces, launch­es, and sup­ports new prod­ucts.

Please join me in wel­com­ing George to this new posi­tion and wish­ing him a long and suc­cess­ful career with CAPLINQ.
