Gertjan Schaefers

Chief Executive Officer EMEA, Netherlands

As CEO EMEA, I’m responsible for running the business across EMEA and ultimately make the key decisions. It’s great working with people who are similarly enthusiastic about ecommerce, online marketing and digital transformation and helping our customers to grow their businesses.

I’m proud to be in the position to claim that our company has grown year-on-year for multiple years under my leadership, and look forward to continuing that in the years to come.

Today, I most enjoy working closely with clients and the Wunderman Thompson Commerce teams to create new strategies and ideas that are innovative and, of course, add value to brands and businesses. I like thinking about what's next — and I am particularly passionate about how Wunderman Thompson Commerce and our clients can take specific action to capitalise on changes in technology and consumer behaviour.

When I’m not in the office, you’ll find me relaxing with my wife and our daughter. We enjoy sailing, travelling and skiing.
