Als jonge ondernemer was Edwin Kennedy mijn coach, leermeester en begeleider. Vanaf de start van BrandPIt en in de jaren die volgden heb ik samen met SalesPulse de grote lijnen en meer specifiek, de sales proposities vorm gegeven en succesvol uit kunnen rollen. Door de verschillende fasen van het bedrijf heen, kon Edwin als buitenstaander in de huid kruipen van wat ik als ondernemer moest ontwikkelen, of waar ik beter anderen voor kon vinden.
Edwin is a very experienced principal sales consultant with a passion for sales. During the period I worked with Edwin, I experienced him as a very pleasant colleague, straight forward and a motivator for his team. His strengths are managing the sales process, stakeholders and setting up the sales strategy which a key for success in achieving the goal of closing the deal. I learned a lot of his way of working and approach and hope to work again with him in the near future. Thanks Edwin.
As principal Transition manager / program manager I worked with Edwin in various challenging bid projects at Capgemini. It is a pleasure to work with Edwin: his drive, spirit to win, direct communication and customer centricity are key assets of Edwin.
In 2011 I met Edwin when he became commercial director of the startup Intrasurance Technology Services. Quickly we started working together and after two years we have managed to create a vast customer base including international insurers and green fields. Edwin has a strong strategic outlook and is always looking for new opportunities. This combination of analytical and commercial skills create value for every company he works at.
Edwin and I worked together when I was working for VvAA insurance. Edwin has great business knowledge and understanding of client needs. He is very pragmatic in his approach. He is a true professional: reliable, flexible and approachable.
Within my role as senior bid manager I worked together with Edwin on various sales pursuits. The collaboration with Edwin has always been a great pleasure. Edwin is a principal sales with not only a lot of sales and market knowledge, but also has the ability to read people as they truly are instead of judging a book by its cover. This together with his passion for sales allow him to outline a clear sales strategy and make him a great asset to any sales team.

Edwin is an old friend and good advisor from my days when i held the CIO portfolio with Achmea and later Eureko group: even after i left and had some other business responsibilities in the pension & investment industry including IT, he was an honest trusted advisor to me. As a former executive in the Indian Technology scene he is also involved in my current activities in Indian business and diaspora affairs.
A true sales professional, excellent network in banking and insurance which he uses effectively, great drive and ability to kick start pipeline development and close deals. Able to go the extra mile, perseverance and results oriented. High ethical standards and a nice guy to work with, happy to recommend.
