Behind the man, there is always a woman and in this case also an entire team, dedicated to change the world a bit.
But our story started, almost 20 years ago, with the man.

He is the founder of POLARIS Creative Solutions, an agency based design studio.

in the fields of brand marketing, communication design, ICT, people communication, travel, writing, training and education, hospitality, food & beverages, consumer adoptation of technology, advertising, content providing and charity, working on projects around the globe.
It is his responsibility to align the companies, internally and externally
, with his strategic vision. He pitches ideas, has ideas pitched to him and puts together partnerships and deals. From day 1 he’s been a trailblazer for good causes and charitable projects. He has been guest lecturer at several schools and is a passionate keynote speaker at various occasions.
