Meet our InnoFour Team
Peter Bakker - CFO
After graduation from University of Twente with a MSc degree in Electrical Engineering, I started my career as an ASIC Design Support Engineer at one of the bigger Telecom company in The Netherlands. I became hugely interested and active in the design automation of electronics, since it gave me an insight in two disciplines, being electronic design (electrical engineering) and automation (computer science). Over the years I have extended my experience in several roles: technical, commercial and management.
In 2008 I had the opportunity to start my own company InnoFour together with three founders focusing on delivering Electronic Design Automation products (tools) and training/services. Today I am proud that we serve a growing number of customers in the Benelux and Scandinavian market with their digitalisation journey of the design of complex electronics and systems. Over time one thing became clear to me, the world of design automation never stands still and gives every day new opportunities and challenges.
Rick Stroot - CEO
A background in Digital Signal Processing and more then 20 years of EDA experience. I entered the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) in 1990 as an application engineer and continued my career to consultancy.
Working in international teams I have then become a leading member in EDA product development for European and American companies. As part of the InnoFour team I am dedicated to deliver productive engineering and electronic development solutions to our customers via the best in class software, support and consultancy for tomorrows complex designs.
Within InnoFour I am technically responsible for all solutions in the area of FPGA and IC design, Cabling and Harness design, and Application lifecycle Management (ALM).

Senior Application Engineer
After graduated in telecommunication, I became an Electrical Engineer for 6 year at Philips, moving on into the EDA in 1990 with Dazix transitioned into Intergraph and became Veribest which then was sold to Mentor Graphics.
Technically I started as an Electrical Engineer working on digital television application and inducing the first EDA systems into the development process. When moving to the EDA industry I worked as all-round Application Engineer responsible for the Analog and Digital simulation tools with a side responsibility for PCB. Over the years this changed and I became a senior specialist in PCB and High-speed tool. Including designing production PCB for a year. This ended when I could become a Application Engineer again at InnoFour.
My aim is to help our customers to find a practical solution for their Engineering and Production processes, getting the best performance out of the tools. By providing them excellent Support, Training and Consulting.

POLARION TECHNICAL CONSULTANT
20 years ago, I started as a software engineer. I graduated in 2006 as a system and network engineer from the University of Amsterdam for applied sciences with a BSc. In 2011 I became a software architect after graduation from University of Amsterdam with a MSc in Software engineering.
Besides the engineering and architecture, I also became a cybersecurity and privacy expert. From security engineering level to architecture level. I agree with Elon Musk who said: The architect should know tech better than the people that works for him.
In 2018 I had the opportunity to start with Polarion. I started with developing scripts, widgets, and plugins. At InnoFour I am the technical Polarion expert.
Together with my experience of engineering, software architecture, networks, security, and privacy I can offer our clients the best (technological) solutions.
