Frans W Biegstraaten, CEO South East Asia & China, Brandtone

“I am an entrepreneur with nearly 20 years’ international experience in different industries; software, technology, semi-conductors and big data. I co-founded SmartHaven in 1999 and was their CEO until it was sold to Quote Media Group in 2002. In 2003 I was involved in the set-up of Invitation (at that time called True Solar Autonomy). After raising a series B round of capital in 2008 for Invitation I relocated to Hong Kong with my family to set up the Asian operations for Invitation, working directly with our partners and clients in the region. In 2013, after 10 years with Invitation, I was ready for a new challenge and joined Brandtone as COO Asia in September of that year. In October 2014 became CEO for South East Asia and early 2016 I added China to the markets that I cover for Brandtone.”
