Remko Bijsmans – Head of Customer Succcess Management
Remko started his career in Process Mining in 2015, when he joined the young and ambitious ProcessGold team as a Marketing and Sales Representative. Before that he worked as a Technical Consultant in the financial industry.
Having graduated from the Business Information Systems Master’s program at Eindhoven University of Technology, he knew exactly what ProcessGold was trying to achieve and brought indispensable input into the development of its customer base.

What makes ProcessGold unique?
It’s definitely the people, in a good way! Everybody is willing to help and cooperate with one another in order to achieve a bigger goal. This is one of the crucial things we bring to the table. A willingness to understand one another and form lasting partnerships that leads to mutual success, and that is what customers and partners value in us.
I like the quote from Albert Einstein: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.” For me this means that sometimes you need to get out of your comfort zone and try a new approach or technology. Process Mining is exactly that, a disruptive technology that can provide you with the fresh insights you (didn’t know) you were looking for.
