Herman founded his first company Connective Power in 1995, which was an omni-channel commerce platform for retailers (Amyx). This was when e-commerce just starting to grow - even before Google. The platform consists of an integrated webshop platform, cash register for physical stores and an ERP system for mid-sized retailers. With this experience, Herman gained great insight into the full spectrum of IT systems for the retail industry.
Sander gained practical retail experience working within Customer Business Development at Procter & Gamble. After P&G, Sander – together with two former eBay business developers – became owner of online strategy consultancy firm Harvest, which was later acquired by Naspers (OLX). In 2011, Sander founded Commerce Squared, a boutique retail strategy consulting firm focused solely on digital projects.
Herman and Sander are very strong and experienced and lead a team of talented developers and sales consultants. Together they have built a rock-solid company with an extremely attractive growth potential in a highly innovative market. The company fits the investment philosophy of our fund and we look forward to using our knowledge, network and energy to help Omnia Retail reach its growth ambition.
