Frits Polman

Managing Director Europe

I founded Guide ID in 2003 with the idea to bring cultural information to as many museum visitors as possible. I'm a creative person and have lots of ideas for the companies future. Sometimes so many that I drive the rest of the Guide ID team crazy once in a while. I, of course, love my three kids, as well as playing tennis, snowboarding, hanging around with friends and travelling to other countries.

Joshua Stevenson

Business manager UK & Ireland

I consider myself very lucky to work for not only a company that is totally progressive, but also a company that can fulfil my passion for travelling. As Business Manager for the UK & Ireland, I am fortunate to be able to visit some really amazing places within my role. In my spare time when I am not visiting some of the British Isles best attractions, I love going to the cinema, visiting the theatre, eating out, and I also love spending precious time with my friends and family.

Petra Brinkhof - de Rijk

Business manager Benelux

After 13 years of working in the international giftware business, I switched to the far more inspiring heritage world in 2005. In this sector I can combine commercial activities and my interest in art. I have a Masters in French and literature. Besides visiting museums, I love theater and concerts. Me and my husband have three kids, who love sports. At the weekend we either support the kids or do sports ourselves.

Mitchell Brown

Head of Client Services

Coming from a consumer electronics and gaming background, I really enjoy the challenge of mixing the old with the new. The old being the heritage and the new being our platform. The fact that I get to travel a lot is a bonus. I was born in Bristol but I have been living in Holland for 20 years. I love watching football, hanging out with my girlfriend and friends, and playing tennis in my spare time.

Hendrik van den Boogaard

Head of hardware development

At Guide ID I am mainly responsible for hardware-related developments. In my spare time I like messing with the computer, watching tv series, playing some (board- or computer-)games (in which I usually try to find ways to cheat when I can't win), hanging out with my girlfriend and/or friends and the other usual stuff that people like doing. Although most of my non-tech colleagues at Guide ID seem to like sports, I don't, but I do regularly take the stairs when I get/leave home (which is 16 floors or 240 steps :)).

Mark Hattink

Head of software development

After my studies, I rolled into a programming project for Guide ID and since never left. Computers, graphic design and music are some of my many hobbies besides playing pinball and pachinko (パチンコ). I also like to visit concerts/festivals and the cinema. As a tech guy I don't really care for sports either, the only sports in my life is karting.
Sometime in the future I hope to visit Japan. It's one of the few countries that really attracts me. じゃね !

Susanne Brown - de Haas

Client Services and Office management

My job at Guide ID is to provide out clients with everything they need and help then with any issues or questions. I really enjoy my job, especially the contact with clients. I like to laugh a lot and have fun with colleagues. When I am not at work I really enjoy my family life with my little girl and husband, which is not Mitchell Brown by the way, but his brother.
