I am Henk Akse.
I founded Traxxys in the fall of 2004, when almost nobody talked about Sustainability and almost everybody thought we had solved all environmental issues……
Innovation and sustainability have been constant factors in my career over the past 33 years. These factors still drive me today.
Groningen and Eindhoven university, Shell, Paques, RVO, VEMW, NUON, and Arcadis have tought me about profession, corporate life, how to achieve targets but – most importantly – how to innovate chemical processes in a clever way.
This working knowledge I like to share with you in your professional life!
I am a proud father of two daughters: Sophie working in HR for an international vegetable distributing company and Lotte creating audio visual installations in the Rotterdam Art scene after having finalized the Willem de Kooning Art Academy. Together with my dear partner Alicia I am living in the centre of the Netherlands, in a rural town called Woerden close to Schiphol Airport.
I like long distance cycling, Bach, playing the Grand piano, concerts of the Rolling Stones, paintings of Vincent van Gogh and Anton Mauve. I admire Murray Perahia, Stefan Askenazy, Christopher Hogwood, Andreas Staier, Mick Jagger, J.J. Cale and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Essentially: Sound and Vision, like Bowie said…
