Paul van der Velde joins ENPICOM as Chief Operations Officer and Acting Chief Technology Officer

ENPICOM welcomes experienced COO to strengthen operational processes

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Van Der Velde as our Chief Operations Officer and acting Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Paul has most recently served as CTO at The Sharing Group N.V. where he was responsible for development teams and architecture. In addition, he ran multiple projects to increase engineering quality, time to market and portfolio management.

Paul brings extensive experience in both technical and product management roles, which have enabled him to excel at building efficient teams to develop, market, and manage great products and services, as well as empowering product managers, product owners, and process managers to reach their goals. At ENPICOM, he will be heading our technical and operational activities to further improve our software development capabilities and strengthen our operational processes. As acting CTO, Paul will also function as internal mentor and coach to one of the senior engineers with the aim of preparing him for the CTO role in the future.

I’m very happy to join ENPICOM in their quest to become the global leader in computational immunomics. I was enticed by the passion the team showed for having a real impact in bringing better therapies to patients faster. I was impressed by the capabilities of the IGX Platform in antibody discovery and look forward to taking the next step with the talented people here in the Software and Operations teams.

Paul received his master’s degree in Business Economics, from the University of Amsterdam, with a specialization in Finance. He started his career in product management in 2008 at KPN, a leading Dutch telecommunications company, where he moved up to the role of Senior Director of Product Management in just a few years. During his time there, he contributed to the strategic and in-depth development of each aspect of the product life cycle, including managing and growing portfolio P&L, product strategy, and team building.
