Thierry Alen

”No-nonsense consultancy”

Thierry Alen is a real doer: a thinker who puts his money where his mouth is!

Digitally transform and successfully use data

In our modern society, data and internet related services play an increasing role. But how do we make optimal use of these services? How and where do we use them? Which people, processes and technologies do we need?

As a result of ongoing digitisation, organisations are constantly having to deal with changes. They have to respond to new technological developments, tap new markets or restructure their existing markets. Moreover, companies have an increasing amount of data at their disposal. They want to make optimal use of this, but at the same time comply with applicable privacy laws and data protection regulations.

Thierry Alen has a clear vision on digitization. With plenty of experience in the technology sector, Alen can rightly be called an expert when it comes to digital transformation and digitisation projects. Thierry Alen has the personality needed to initiate change, and can support organisations like no other in the deployment of the appropriate IT-related services.

Owner Intelectric Network Solutions

Over the years I have come to know Thierry as a driven person with a lot of knowledge of the services and products in his package. He is extremely communicative, speaks four languages and knows how to attract customers in his own unique way. Thierry is very social and compassionate: a real people person. I am pleased that our collaboration has been successful for more than seventeen years, time and again.

David Barlow

Director at Esprit Digital Interactive Lt

Thierry is one of those rare people in business “a creative thinker”. Thierry brings a deep knowledge of his subject and a lateral view of how that knowledge might be applied. Thierry will be a tremendous asset to any business that operates outside the ‘me too’ business model that is increasingly bringing the elecronic security industry to a commodity industry.

Thierry Alen

Thierry Alen about himself:

“As much synergy as possible within a team, that’s my goal.

“Every company and every department within an organisation has issues or challenges that are difficult to answer or solve. How do you realise new business models, quality improvements or, for example, savings with innovative technologies? Such projects require someone with an in-depth understanding of the latest technological developments. A manager who sees opportunities can take the lead and motivate teams”.

As a business developer Thierry Alen worked both nationally and internationally with multidisciplinary teams.

Thierry quickly understands the nature of problems and will come up with the right solution in a foreseeable future. Sometimes he is a specialist, sometimes more generalist. In addition to the necessary professional knowledge, Thierry has plenty of knowledge of people and is happy to take responsibility. Thierry is regarded by many as an inspirer and motivator.

Thierry Alen is:

Decisive
Thierry can manage well, makes decisions on time and then sticks to his decision. In case of uncertainty, he makes a choice and takes full responsibility for it.

Competent
Thierry provides the right tools to enable teams to perform optimally. He has the competence to positively influence and convince people.

Integer
Integrity commands respect. People can trust Thierry. That promotes the performance, satisfaction and commitment of employees.

Vision
Thierry has a clear vision and finds that important. A clear vision gives people a common goal and motivates them to persevere. Without a vision one gets nowhere.

Modest
From an always modest and sometimes even humble attitude, Thierry remains in balance between service and powerful leadership.

Persevering
Thierry Alen has transformed, modernized and optimized several organizations in the past. He does this with an attitude of never giving up: flexible, but always persevering.

Business Transformation Consultant

Thierry is not your average sales guy. His unorthodox appraoch and out of the box thinking makes him succesful in tough markets. Apart from that, his sense of humor and positive nature make him a pleasure to work with.

Frank van der Velde

Insights & Analytics Director at Brand-Liquid

Thierry delivered outstanding results in a time-frame that was deemed virtually impossible. Excellent knowledge and accurate feedback at each stage of the project.

Thierry Alen has been dealing with data and communication networks components up from the early 90th. Since, he was a promoter of the so called “structured cabling” in BeNeLux. We did a great job together, also many years later, after he works for me!
