Arnout Groen | GM EMEA
Arnout was 6 years old the first time he boarded a flight across the Atlantic by himself. From that point forward he was hooked on the feeling of adventure that travel had to offer. His career in technology began as a traveling sales engineer for RasterOps EMEA. From there he spent a few too many years working inside a cubicle in Silicon Valley. In spite of the cubicle he was excited to establish a career in Product Management for Truevision. The geek inside thrived on being in the Valley and the excitement product development had to offer. Arnout left his cubical to join Puffin Designs as Director of Business Development, where he traveled throughout EMEA and built a solid international presence for the company. After Puffin Designs came Pinnacle Systems where he continued his journey as Director of Business Development. During a break from his career in technology Arnout picked up a camera and made his best effort at being a professional photographer. The results of which can be seen @ arnoutgroen.com. Privately Arnout works hard to balance career and family with an occasional journey to seek out the perfect wave or snow-powder run. He holds an MBA in international business from Webster University.
