Matthijs de Graaf

Matthijs is part of Fruition NCE (Used to be Logicalis SMC) and have been working there for 4 and a half years. First based in The Netherlands and since May of 2018 based in Copenhagen.

Matthijs is a sales executive doing both New Business and Account Management and has been appointed to support the growth in the Nordic region. Besides the recently win of Electrolux and SKF Matthijs is working on some very exciting ServiceNow and IT4IT opportunities of which a lot of them are a joint effort with the DXC community.

Thoughts on the acquisition

Matthjis explains the importance of local presence. As he was meeting customers, DXC management, account teams and ServiceNow across the Nordics most of the time one of the first questions was: ‘How many consultants do you have available in my country?’. This is where BusinessNow comes in to play, as the one of the leading providers of ServiceNow in the Nordics. As an impatient sales guy, Matthijs is very enthusiastic about BusinessNow joining Fruition Partners, taking the Nordic practice to the next level.

Thoughts on BusinessNow

“Fruition NCE goes to great lengths to guard our culture (Fun-Devotion-Teamwork) which results in highly motivated and committed teams. It’s not uncommon in our company that colleagues are around for 10+ or 15+ years (or as long as we exist). I feel BusinessNow is a very good fit from that ‘culture’ perspective and our business approach as well has a lot of similarities.”

Looking forward

Besides looking forward to the Christmas party, to see what all the fuzz is about, Matthijs is excited to be working together with the team to identify where we can leverage each other’s knowledge and experiences to do wonderful deals.

Spare time

“To relax I like to play golf occasionally. I think I have a great swing, its only not reflected in the scores most of the time. The stupidest, but most fun hobby, I tried; rebuilding the carcass of a sailing boat to make it into a sloop for the canals of Amsterdam. Let’s say I’m better with words then with my hands!”
