Martin ter Horst

Managing Director, the Netherlands

After a short stint in advertising, I moved to IT in the mid-nineties. Since then I’ve seen virtually every corner of the ICT industry; mostly in consulting, project management, sales, and leadership roles. 


In 2014 stepped down as the CEO of a Netherlands-based boutique data consultancy and sold my share of the company. After that, I spent several years helping other IT and consulting firms establish or scale-up their data practices and elevate their service offerings higher up the value chain. 


Early on in 2020, I was first drawn to Thoughtworks. Because of its thought leadership as well as its deeply rooted mission to create social change and be diverse and inclusive by nature.It wasn’t until the second half of 2021 thought that I joined what I consider the greatest company in the world. Since then I’ve been Managing Director for The Netherlands, managing and scaling up a team of highly skilled technologists and consultants and driving the Thoughtworks mission to deliver extraordinary impact.
