Koen Tackx

Professor of Management Practice in Marketing and Strategy

Creating sustainable value for customers, shareholders and society with effective pricing, innovation and product management

Koen Tackx combines corporate strategy with strategic marketing. His strategy research focuses on ensuring effective strategy implementation, and on the impact turbulence and platformisation has on innovation and business models. His main marketing interest is balancing value creation and value capturing – and how different strategies can influence this balance – with a strong emphasis on pricing.

Koen has specific industry focuses too – including energy, financial services and telecommunications. And he has presented academic papers at major conferences. Besides his academic career, Koen has built over 20 years’ experience in various industries – including telecommunications, energy, real estate and HR services.
