History of the Hoppinger Group
History of the Hoppinger Group
Starting the climb
Hoppinger was founded in 2001 by Marijn Bom and his former business partner Jan, during a climb on the highest mountain in Norway, the Galdhøpiggen. It started out as a small internet company with only the two founders and some interns. They mainly focused on branding and first generation programming, growing along with the internet.
Taking the next steps
During that time Hoppinger partnered up with Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences to start a specialization program on web technology. This later turned out to be one of the best partnerships the organization could have, introducing Hoppinger to great new talents that would elevate the company to a higher level.
Full service digital agency
Until 2009, Hoppinger remained primarily a development agency. This changed with the arrival of our current CEO Gerard Pastwa, who, together with Marijn, transformed the company into a full-service digital agency. Designers and strategists became part of the team, and Hoppinger embraced open source techniques to develop the best digital products.
Becoming a digital partner
By 2016 Hoppinger had become a fruitful mix of strategists, designers, developers and online marketeers from different academic backgrounds. But the arrival of Giuseppe Maggiore as the new CTO brought us to the next level. His extended knowledge on the future of technology and his ambition, temped other like minded engineers to join us too and his Italian background paved the way for many internationals. He incorporated enterprise technology into our work, making it possible for Hoppinger to become a true digital partner for our clients.
The Hoppinger Group
As we grew, we wanted to stay close to our customers. To give our customers the focus they deserve, we decided to set up sister company Vidda Digital. Hoppinger focused on digital platforms, Vidda Digital on growth marketing and lead generating corporate websites. For the same reason, we also founded Hoppinger Business Solutions in 2020, which helps customers optimize processes and structure data with low code, BI, CRM and ERP solutions. With that, the Hoppinger Group was born: end-to-end partner for digital transformation.
Because we are a group of companies instead of one big corporation, we can deliver in-house expertise without losing our agile start-up mentality. This not only makes us attractive for clients, but also for our professionals. Working for the Hoppinger Group, means always having a next step to take in your career. Whether that step is a promotion or a side step to a different role or company. Basically you can have a lifelong career, working with different clients on different goals, without losing your favourite colleagues.
