I am incredibly thankful for his years of advice and support”, said Derk Haank, co-CEO of Springer Nature.
Commenting further, Frank Vrancken Peeters, CCO of Springer Nature, said, “Since I joined Springer Nature, Syed and I have been working closely, reviewing our sales and marketing strategies in order to strengthen our business and teams. I am very grateful to him for his assistance and support”.
