My name is Lars Nefs. I have been working as an Esri Technology Specialist at Tensing since October 2020.
As a small child my great uncle was my good friend. He worked at the Land Registry and I wanted to do what he did. Many years later I completed my studies in geodesy/geo-informatics at the Hogeschool Utrecht. After my studies I worked for over 6 years as a GIS consultant at the municipality of Tilburg, after which I held the same position for 3 years at Antea Group. At both companies I was mainly involved with FME and the various Esri applications. This makes Tensing a logical continuation to apply this knowlegde to our clients and expend it together with our driven and skilled team of GIS specialists.
I live in Rijen, a place in Noord-Brabant, where I left the parental home in 2014. In my spare time I am part of the equally famous and infamous band RODL Rijen (#alwayspromoting), where I play trumpet. I also like to get on the road bike or mountain bike in my spare time. On vacation I like to climb the big mountains in Europe on my racing bike.
The focus on Esri en Safe Software has been an important reason for me to choose Tensing. I really enjoy working with this applications and look forward to applying my knowledge at various clients. In addition, I expect to learn a lot within the team of smart GIS professionals. Despite the fact that we, as consultants, spend a lot of time with our clients, the team spirit and the urge to grow together is very strong.
