My name is Marnix de Vrije and I live in Voorburg in The Netherlands.
Since 1994 I have been involved in web design. In those early years of the World Wide Web i decided to focus on this new wave in the IT world, instead of becoming an accountant or business administrator. After my study Communication & Multimedia Design at the Hague University i started working at Winvision in 2006. During those years i did numerous SharePoint projects focusing on developing websites based on the SharePoint platform.
I work as a consultant at Mavention, responsible for designing, developing and delivering SharePoint and Sitecore solutions. I’m specialized in SharePoint and Sitecore Web Content Management solutions, web standards and accessibility.
Who is Mavention? The name Mavention is derived from the word maven, “a trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass knowledge on to others.” We are an independent company with an entrepreneurial spirit. Mavention aims for real results for our clients. We do this with passion for both our customers and profession. As one of the few organizations in the Netherlands we have the Microsoft SharePoint Master certification and we have a SharePoint Most Valuable Professional. We regularly organize SharePoint events for our customers and we are represented in the SharePoint Black Belts group in which the best Dutch SharePoint consultants participate.
Mavention implements the new way of work: the new way of sharing information, knowledge and experience. It increases the quality of information and reduces operational costs. Mavention helps businesses to use the new way of work by translating their needs into practical solutions. This results in realistic and manageable projects.
