Personal Life

Tak’s family lives internationally; he and his wife live part-time in different countries, as do his four children.”Half of our children are in the Netherlands, half are in England, my wife is in England, and I commute between England and the U.S.,” he says.This exposure to multiple cultures not only enhances his life, but also provides him with a world view toward business and leadership.”You always learn from other people, other cultures,” he says. “And you can always find better ways of doing something in one part of the world compared to another.”
