Director & Founding partner
DDG Smart Marketing, The Netherlands
Arno´s family name is the first D in our trademark. You might not always see him at our events, but you can be sure he is involved. Some people take centre stage; others are facilitators behind the curtain. Arno ensures the foundations of DDG are solid. He insisted on investments in IT when most agencies only used computers for word processing and bookkeeping. He keeps an eye on the numbers. Can be a terminator when options run out but he is mostly a moderator in debates and is consolatory when emotions run high. He understands the importance of creativity but will lead a brainstorm to its conclusion because decisions drive actions. Make up your minds. Choose and execute. Arno is the rock that DDG was built on. By the way: he loves marshmallows.
