NXT sends first Dutch management trainee to India
Floris Moest, a young professional with a background in international business who has prior experience doing several projects for foreign companies in Europe, was send by NXT to its office in Bangalore, India.
Starting off as a management trainee, he works in close contact with Victor Eveleens (Head of Business Units Technology & Performance Materials) for a period of six months to study all facets of NXT’s infrastructure.
Mr. Moest is 20 years old and is originally from the city of Eindhoven, a thriving technology hub where the headquarters of Philips is located. He managed to procure an internship for six months at NXT’s head office in the Netherlands. There he worked as an e-commerce specialist and was responsible for managing Dutch e-commerce infrastructure and optimizing the fulfilment and sales process. In India, he heads a five member E-Commerce team. His primary vision is on the scalability of this unit.
The Dutch management trainee is observing the business processes in Bangalore from a Dutch perspective. He finds it beneficial and educational to work in NXT’s corporate culture.
‘It’s hard work, gaining a lot of practical and on site knowledge, very interesting projects with highly reputable companies. I have a lot of responsibilities, and I’m learning a lot of new skills in this emerging economy”.
Moest seamlessly blended into the Indian culture. The communication style is slightly different from the Dutch. People in India are not as direct and forthright. However, Floris and India share a common trade which is being determined and focused on getting results. He was pleasantly surprised at how modern and multicultural the city is and already feels at home. “The social life is vibrant and exciting, there’s always something to look forward to, to destress after work and on the weekends”
