Bob Hekkelman

While studying communication in Utrecht, I worked as an entertainer at a campsite in France during the summer months. I learned that you can connect people of different nationalities by having them work together and have fun. At that time, I never could have guessed that this would be the foundation for an international career in marketing and communication.

For the past 25 years, I’ve led two of WPP’s communication companies in Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, Helsinki, and Amsterdam. Besides entrepreneurship and brand strategy, I’ve focused on digital transformation and the demands today’s reality places on companies and employees in terms of growth.

Even in the increasingly complex virtual world, it remains essential that people are involved in how the business functions and changes, the role they play in this as people and professionals, and how it comes together for both sides. I love people, I’m curious about what motivates them, and I dare to push boundaries to get to the core of their personal ambitions. By communicating honestly and effectively, which is a personal strength of mine and also the key to change.

I look forward to meeting you.
