Diana Geels de Koos passionately guides VodafoneZiggo's Cloud Infrastructure tribe, demonstrating a keen focus on her team members. Working towards creating an ideal work environment, Geels de Koos ensures her team has the freedom to build and work on the best Cloud Infra services. Within this setting, authenticity is encouraged, providing a secure space for personal growth and development.

Geels de Koos studied Business Administration in Rotterdam. She started her career working for a company that at the time had only 30 employees, but within two years had grown into a company of 500. “I learned a lot from the quick growth of the company and what that did to the people, structure, products and services. After that, I moved to IBM,” she explains, “At IBM, I had my first management job and grew from role to role. At a certain moment in time, I felt the need to grow into a customer-facing role.”

Geels de Koos found that role by working for the technology company Oracle, staying there for more than 15 years and working in several roles. “I really liked it very much, learned a lot and saw several aspects of the company, technology and business. And then VodafoneZiggo came along and now here we are.”

Within her current role, Geels de Koos explains that one of the biggest challenges is getting the right people with the right skills. “The market is so tough,” she says. “It's just so competitive. You lose people because they get better offers somewhere else.”

Geels de Koos believes that the key to a successful team is creating an environment where everyone is comfortable expressing themselves, sharing their opinions, and embracing experimenting. Geels de Koos consistently encourages the team to actively listen to each other, ensuring a sense of safety for everyone involved.

According to Geels de Koos, security and compliance are the number one priority for her and her organisation, along with high standards of achieving both. “Security incidents in society are becoming a daily occurrence. As a telecommunications provider, we continuously monitor to detect suspicious activities and adapt our security measures when necessary.”
