“Gejo was my ‘mentor’ at the ISM (now: Managed Services) division of Oracle Netherlands. He thought me a lot with regards to the Service Level Management side of the job and how to deal with customers. He’s a great guy to work with; (dead)serious when he has to be, but there’s also time enough for a joke. He knows his stuff very well, and he’s always prepared to explain things or help you out. And he stands behind ‘his men’; he won’t sell you out if that’s politically or commercially convenient for him. I enjoyed working with and for him.”

— Mike Philippens, Oracle Consultant, Oracle Corporation, reported to Gejo at Oracle

Henk de Vries

“From 1998 until 2005 I worked for the Dutch Oracle Consulting business unit ISM (Information Systems Management), later on known as Managed Services. Gejo was one of the founding fathers of ISM and later on business unit manager until 2005. With his endless creativity, dedication and enthusiasm he turned ISM into a very profitable and successful part of Oracle Consulting in the Netherlands. I know Gejo van der Kaaden as a business unit manager, committed to his job and the business unit he is managing and also providing a good working and social atmosphere within the unit. It’s a pleasure to work with Gejo as colleague and for Gejo as manager. On the personal level he is a motivator, with very special sense of humor, not work-related interest in and sympathizing with people and protecting the people for overload.”

Norbert Bessems

“I have worked with Gejo for some 18 months at Orange Business Services. During this period I have come to know Gejo as a true ICT professional, with a very solid technical background, a keen eye for processes, a well developed commercial sense, and very service and customer committed. He is a ”heart and soul driven’
people’s manager, able to bring the best out of individuals and teams.”
