Victor is Partner, Managing Director (aka Main Monk) of MediaMonks. After sailing round Europe for a living, former skipper Victor dropped his anchor in the choppy waters of Hilversum (just outside of Amsterdam) in 2003. Since then, he has developed an increasingly low tolerance for bad sailing metaphors. Being the only Monk with a driving license, he initially became the one to handle clients and accounts.
Today, Victor is the Monk that takes the stage to talk about business and the way digital works. At any talk he gives, one person will leave the room offended, but another 10 will be inspired to see digital in a completely new light. For the last nine years, he directed the company's growth by sticking to the golden rule: Buy, barter or die.
MediaMonks is the biggest creative digital production agency on the planet, with offices in Amsterdam, London or New York. With a staff of over 160 talented monks, MM combines full in-house services - including film, game development and mobile - with a personal approach. The trophies and recognition from the FWA, Cannes Lions, BIMA, the Webbies and the Lovies, amongst others, are a nice indication of the love, dedication and eye for detail brought to the projects.
