Announcement: I am no longer with Boulevart
Last week Boulevart decided to stop pushing its mobile strategy, as a result of the rough economical situation we all are facing. It was quite an unexpected and hard decision which meant that they are letting me go. These recent developments happened very quickly, for various reasons, but I did not really see it coming. Being surprised hearing the news, my Boulevart adventure ended on Thursday 14/05. Taking a closer look on the last year, I can only say that I’m very proud of what we achieved together and that it was a blast, working with several talented people. I’ll miss being one of Boulevart’s known representatives, where winning the Max Award in December ’08 was definately one of the highlights.
Looking for opportunities
Every ending offers a new beginning, so I took a few days to clear my head and figure out in which direction I want to go from now. Although I don’t have any concrete plans I updated my linkedIn profile in order to start talking, networking and looking for opportunities. I’m planning on focussing more on mobile consult in general:
