Dave van den Akker

CEO

I established LinQuake ("Linguistic Earthquake") in August of 2013. It was a big leap of faith, but starting my own business has been a dream come true. After that, it really took off. This year (2018), LinQuake celebrates its fifth anniversary. I'm really proud of our team and of the clients that trust our expertise. Because I work together with motivated colleagues, the time flies by very quickly. I used to work in sales, but recently I have been focussing on the innovations occurring in the translation industry and determining how to market and apply these. When I'm not working, I like to spend as much time as possible with my wife Danielle and my son Lars. I love travelling and discovering new places and activities. I recently started working out again, so as to compensate for my love for food.
