Say hello to our new Deputy Commercial Director!

Together with our Commercial Director Gerard Wiecherink, our new Deputy Commercial Director has a challenging assignment: make Convergence even bigger and more awesome! We would like to introduce you our new Greek colleague Xenofon Varidakis.

Tell us something about yourself

I live in Athens with my wife Dorita and our daughter Sofia. We like exploring Athens (often ending up in some kids’ playground, which can be fun for all) and spending our holidays in some interesting new place where we can take it easy while soaking up the local culture.

In my spare time, I like to grab a coffee or beer with friends or watch some obscure world cinema film (all-time favourites include Dario Argento and Andrei Tarkovsky). I would like to get back into skydiving and mountain biking, and being Greek, I also enjoy long philosophical discussions with no objective and no visible end point.

What are your plans for Convergence?

I want to work closely with Gerard, Chielant, Felix and the rest of the team towards making
Convergence the go-to market leader in our product and service niches and grow our global market share and revenue through the creation of new direct and indirect sales channels and strategic partnerships.

What would you like to achieve in the next 5 years?

As a member of the Convergence team, I want to actively contribute to our global expansion drive, with the end objective being to continuously widen our product and tech portfolio, while at the same time strengthening the Convergence brand equity and building upon the success of the past decade.

Personally, I want to continue learning about new technologies and applications, creating networks and taking on new challenges!

What are your qualities to achieve your goals?

I am generally described as being results-oriented, calm under pressure and a planner. I enjoy devising and executing strategy (my biggest challenge), studying and building human relationships and networks, and ‘joining the dots’ by taking care of the details while seeing the big picture.

You’re not satisfied until…

I keep coming up with new ideas and ways of doing things – be it in marketing, sales, strategy, etc. – with process optimisation and the customer in mind.

Fun fact

The saying “taking the bull by its horns” comes from the Greek myth of Hercules saving Crete from a raging bull by seizing its horns.
