Our team

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.
