Meet our leaders

Debby de Gelder (Managing Director, Raet Netherlands)

"I studied Business Administration and Public Administration at Erasmus University Rotterdam prior to joining Archstone Consulting as a business consultant in 2004. While there, I concentrated primarily on business transformations and change processes. My main focus was on conducting analyses and maximizing client impact. I moved to KPN in 2010, where I focused on HR. I held various HR positions in the area of Operations and Services, dealing with topics ranging from process optimization, to full responsibility for KPN’s HR Operations & Services component.

I joined Raet in November 2015 as the Director of BPO Services, with responsibility for operational HR support for all our Business Process Outsourcing clients. In 2016, we realigned BPO and Professional Services, bringing them closer together in the organization. That’s when I became responsible for all Services at Raet.

I have been the Managing Director of Raet NL since July 2018. In that role I am responsible for the totality of client experience when it comes to our software and services. I work with everyone at Raet to develop the best HR solutions for our clients so that they can get the most out of their workforce and achieve their business and HR goals. "

Alvaro Capobianco (Managing Director Latin America)

"I had the privilege of working in 15 countries (mostly in Latin America), during the last 20 years, with different HR Technologies. I used to work for the main global software companies, always leading the HR line of business and helping huge customers across Latin America. A great experience that gave me a strong knowledge of Strategic HR and allowed me to be an advisor about HR digital transformation, but also gave me a personal life experience after sharing with so many different cultures.

Innovation it's my passion, as well as being close to our customers and making them live an amazing HR journey, being part of their business growth adding value with our solutions. That's the attitude and enthusiasm that we share in our team, keeping our entrepreneur DNA every day."

Wijnand van Plaggenhoef (Product Development Director at Visma)

"After finishing my studies in Industrial Automation in 1996, I started working at Baan Development (now Infor). Here I have gained experience in product development. It is my passion to build generic products exceeding customer expectations with an enthusiastic international team. In 2004 I went to work for Cordys where I was responsible for the Dutch development organization. During my time at Cordys I learned how the optimization of processes can help customers make enormous steps in efficiency and effectivity.

As Product Development Director at Visma I am responsible for a great team in the Netherlands and Spain that delivers the Raet and Visma SaaS solutions. We continuously work on our products and add features to ensure that our customers can optimize their HR processes 24/7."
