Meet the management team
Founder & President – Akendi UK
Technically everything is possible, making it work for people is where the real challenges are. Addressing these challenges from an end-user perspective in a way that makes business sense is what has driven Leo throughout his career. With more than 20 years of experience he is able to bring an ability of strong lateral thinking combined with very broad domain knowledge of applications/markets and technical enablers.
Tedde van Gelderen
Founder & President Canada
Tedde infuses Akendi, its services and methodology with his drive to make customer and user experiences go beyond a singular product or service. Experience Thinking starts with the holistic experience customers and users have with an organisation over time, then guides the enabling technologies and content to create intentional experiences. In his view, Experience Thinking should become deeply rooted in an organisation's creation processes, research, ux testing and experience design in both public and private sectors.
