Hi! I’m Ken.

I build and lead world-class product teams.

I’m passionate about creating beautiful, easy-to-use products (mobile and web). An entrepreneur in my own right, I have a proven track record of leading product teams and turning ideas into successful products. I’m currently based in Berlin and work with some of the world’s most influential companies and brands to create products that touch the lives of millions of people.


Shipping made simple.

Twill makes shipping simple. The booking process is as easy as buying airplane tickets – it takes just 30 seconds to place a complete cargo booking. No phone calls – everything happens on the intuitive platform.

Building a virtual freight forwarder

Freight forwarding is a fragmented, analog and inefficient process. Twill offers instant quotation, shipment tracking and smooth, digital document handling, while building on the experience of DAMCO’s tried and tested logistics network.

The product challenge

Building a digital freight forwarder with state-of-the-art technology in an industry that still relies on couriers and faxes is not an easy feat. In my role as Senior PM at BCG Digital Ventures, I was responsible for the creation and execution of the product vision and roadmap from the ground up, as well as building and coaching the venture team that took over Twill during the commercialisation phase.

Facts and Figures

  • Position: Leading PM
  • First live booking on the platform after 5 months of build time
  • Locations in Berlin and The Hague
  • Coached venture team to take over after successful launch
  • Delivered on-time and on-budget


One app. Every airport.

FLIO provides crucial airport information, connects you with free Wi-Fi, and offers lounge passes and train tickets at a discount through in-app purchases.

Building a world-class team

As CPO and Co-founder, I recruited 10+ passionate senior developers, PMs, and designers to create the world’s most efficient airport app. To connect our team across four locations, I implemented scrum-oriented processes from scratch and developed low-budget collaboration methods to foster smooth communication.

The product challenge

FLIO aggregates information about airports (mostly through proprietary APIs and web scraping). Our challenge was to identify which services were most useful to the user, and deliver on those priorities under budget. We focused on clustering features for fast search experience to avoid information overload. After all, it might make the difference between catching a flight or missing it.

Making shopping rewarding

shopnow is a shopping companion app. As you visit stores, you collect points that can later be redeemed for rewards, and you receive personalized offers and discounts.

The shopnow team

I built this product team from just myself up to a staff of 15. We ran a smooth scrum process, but I’m most proud of our consistent team spirit. With team members from seven different countries, we cultivated a supportive culture that made work feel awesome.

The product challenge

From hand-soldering the first iBeacon prototype to building out the roadmap for a new mobile app, I loved the process of transitioning my own workload from hands-on technical skill to hiring and managing a team of 15—while consistently delivering on time and on budget.

The restaurant guide

foodQuest simplifies the restaurant search. Instead of being flooded with geo-driven choices, foodQuest tailors its recommendations by category like business lunch, romantic dinner, laptop-friendly or quick & healthy.

A team of entrepreneurs

I co-founded foodQuest fresh out of university. Starting and running our own company taught me the practical skills and strategic mindset that I use as a product director today, and that continue to fuel my passion for mobile products.

The product challenge

Run on a shoestring budget, foodQuest went up against the Yelps and Qypes of the web 2.0 era. We focused our resources on building the best user experience on the market by enriching existing restaurant data with our community’s recommendations.
