Born and raised in The Netherlands. Rutger has been working within the IT industry for roughly 25 years. As a Senior Consultant at Proact IT in Sweden as well as VMware PSO he spends most of his time helping customers design, deploy and manage VMware SDDC (vSphere, NSX, vSAN) and all that comes with that.

It’s no secret that he’s quite passionate about VMware NSX. Not only because the solution brings cool technology to the table helping organizations accelerate digital transformation and speed up their service delivery. It’s also very interesting how the NSX platform tends to tear down some of the traditional silos found within IT organizations. It brings different people with different backgrounds and competencies together and that’s when exciting things can happen.

Rutger lives in the south of Sweden with his wife and two kids. He used to be quite a fanatic photographer and have all kind of activities going on in his spare time. Unfortunately, he acquired some brain damage due to a life threatening brain abscess in 2017 and his lif was turned upside down. He’s very grateful to be alive and functioning, albeit with some physical limitations. He’s still in the process of figuring out the new him. Maybe he will be able to rewrite this part of his bio some years from now.
