Nik started to learn about customer loyalty and customer experience at the age of 16, when he started to help in his mother’s menswear shop. That experience taught him that knowing your customer and their preferences – and treating every customer accordingly – is an important business differentiator. Today, he enjoys implementing that same principle with his clients – on a much larger scale.
Nik has been in management consulting for more than 25 years, first with Accenture, and later with his own consultancy. He has worked with major organizations all around Europe and across different industries, striving to achieve the same goal his mother had – to keep customers happy and loyal.
Nik is based in Brussels, and specializes in loyalty marketing and customer experience. Building stronger and more valuable relationships with customers has been his passion for over two decades. For Nik, consulting doesn’t stop at the last slide. He likes to take ownership from beginning to end: translating a business vision into an actionable strategy, but also taking on the responsibility of implementing the strategy and ultimately achieving strong results.
Nik is passionate about his two sons and anything with wheels. He likes to cycle, tour on his motorbike, and make trips with his 1960-MGA old-timer car.
