Hi, my name is Mark Appel. 46 years old and more than 25 years active in the IT industry. I like to share my experiences about marketing, the cloud, triathlon and gadgets. I live in The Netherlands near Amsterdam and was born in the southern part of the country. I have a great family together with my wife Jeannette with two kids. My son Julius at age of 14 and my daugther Sophie at the age of 16. Exciting times with raising kids and parents who have many ambitions. Finding the balance in between business and private life is a challenging thing. But the time we are living in is also exciting. Electronics and internet changing our lives and habits. Today in business life I am the global marketing director of Exact, the cloud solutions part.The 1st half of my career I spend my time as a salesman and sales manager. The second half of my career I slowly made the shift towards marketing. It is interesting to see how our daily lives are effected but also how the business and market is reacting on it. I very much like the essential principles of all what is going on around social media. In order to multiply you first need to share. In order to multiply you first need to share.Technology helps us to act in a better way. Whether it is private life or business. Finding things instead of searching for it. Serendipity becomes reality. Get introduced to new and exciting things, persons or companies of your flavour. Be surprised by your network of connections inviting you to new experiences.
