Yamaha Motor Europe N.V.
For my first KANDO moment we have to go back to the year 2011, when I was working at Yamaha Motor Europe N.V., Branch Nederland.
At that time Mr. Arno Sunnotel from Yamaha Motor Europe and Mr. Ton Koebolt (owner of the glossy automotive magazine RTL Magazine) came with the idea to create something unique for a charity program in The Netherlands.
My ‘simple task’ was to coordinate the total project. During that time we had several meetings about the design of the Yamaha R1 and how to make this project as unique as possible.
At the end, we created a one-off Yamaha R1 ‘AGO Replica Edition’. For the charity evening we had invited Mr. Giacomo Agostini himself to present this unique motorcycle to ‘the World’.
At that particular evening I felt the meaning of KANDO!
I felt proud looking at all the people who were present when Mr. Agostini arrived and when he unveiled ‘our project’.
