Bio

FRANK BEKKERS, JOYN INTERNATIONAL
CEO

Reading Frank Bekkers' resume, one gets the impression he is a serial entrepreneur. One is right. Mobile Vikings is his 13th company, preceded by various others like Tupperware, Creneau, Medical Software and the Living Lab i-City. As varied as all these companies were, there is one thing connecting them, one thing that is Frank's real passion. It encompasses creativity, new and different business models, in a word: innovation. Mobile Vikings is a fine example. Creating an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) without a brand, without points of sales, with a whole new approach and rapidly muscling his way into a market that was supposed to be saturated, for Frank it's just what he does. He is more an evangelist than a CEO. To quote George Bernard Shaw: "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man."
