Jordy Kool’s CV is a page-turner. From a stint in an elite military unit, to an award-winning tenure as CEO of the Infotheek Group, and then a mid-career reinvention as a mentor and investor — it runs long on adventure and short on predictability.

But, as he tells Jean-François Manzoni in this wide-ranging conversation, his success has been built on a few simple principles.

Among key takeaways in this episode, discover how Kool’s military training has shaped his decision making in business; his time-management tricks when pursuing several projects at once; and the calculus he uses to decide when it’s time to sell a company.

Jordy Kool is an alumnus of the High Performance Board program at IMD.
