My Experience; Jeroen Lens

With over 25 years of experience in international automotive industries, both in Europe and the US, I can offer companies a wide range of support and a tremendous network of possible clients and suppliers.

While having experience in working with all Major OEMs worldwide, I have a client list of automotive oriented companies mainly involved in supplying unique and or competitive products, services and processes to the automotive world. Working from offices in the Netherlands and the UK, I spend my time across Europe, the US and Asia, advising, executing growth strategies and developing new products. Having strong OEM and Tier 1/2/3 connections with many key people of influence as well as Director/CEO level with supply partners, LENSTRAT is strongly networked, allowing good access to potential programs of work.

The automotive industry is not for everyone. Business and developments are fast paced, rules and regulations are tough, and suppliers are always under tremendous time and costing pressure.

If there is no passion for automotive, it is hard to survive in this market place. With 25 years of passionate automotive experience I know how the business runs and I can look back on many awarded and successful programs. I can be proud at a history of great results.
