more abroad?

international business: no need to appoint someone right now

Who does not recognize it: for all kinds of reasons there can be a barrier to do (more) business abroad. We are busy, maybe we don’t have enough time. Or sometimes we are a little too modest. Either way, appointing a truly experienced international sales manager is ‘expensive’. Not to mention his or hers extra fringe benefits and additional costs. So where to start?

Cut the traditional sales process

This ‘agile’ approach will provide a strong base for new export contacts and international growth. Without high start-up costs.

Why it works

Experience matters with selling technical products and services to customers and intermediaries at home and abroad. And being well acquainted with environmental technology and manufacturing industries. 


Already in the preparation phase it was jointly listed what will be further addressed in the follow-up. By yourself, your team or partly with input from outside. It’s all up to you.

About Dexss

My name is Hans Marcuse. Extensive international expertise with Europe, USA, Middle East and South East Asia. Well entered in the environmental sector, supply and manufacturing industries, waste processing and the process industry (oil & gas, raw materials, basic chemicals). And access to a large network of specialists where and when needed.


Studies by several governmental agencies and knowledge institutes, among others, indicate that a few factors – some quite obvious – determine successful exports:

Read which these are

  • ambition and willingness to invest time (energy)
  • an organization that is ‘export ready’ with own international experience of management as a clear advantage
  • in combination with network competences, the involvement of export partners in the target area.

Furthermore a survey by the Dutch Chamber of Commerce found that nearly 60% of a sample of more than 400 exporting companies started doing so when opportunities presented themselves. These 400 were part of 4000 surveyed companies, 90% of which did not export.

It turned out ...
… many chances were considered more or less accidental. Challenge is to deal with them in an organized way, while also creating new opportunities at the same time. Without sacrificing agilty and control.

Synspec - monitoring devices

“During his time as managing director of Synspec B.V. I got to know Hans Marcuse as an extremely active, goal-oriented manager who was not afraid to leave the well-trodden path in the interests of the company in order to pursue new, success-oriented ways. He integrated the existing wealth of experience into his ideas and developed new market strategies from them in order to position the company with its products in the best possible way. “

Ingolf Kahl
Managing director of EAS Envimet Deutschland GmbH, salespartner of Synspec in Germany


“I first met Hans at Synspec in Groningen where he led the drive to develop new export markets for the company’s analysers in Europe, the Middle East, USA and Asia. Hans is skilled in strengthening product portfolios. He has a sharp understanding of the mind-set needed to tackle new markets. And I’m impressed by his knowledge of international markets and the intricacies involved when approaching them. His new venture Dutch Export Solutions will be invaluable for any manufacturing company based in The Netherlands wishing to broaden their export horizons.”
