Marcel Wassink
Head of Business Development

contextflow SEARCH is like a car’s navigation: a tool for every radiologist to guide them during diagnosis.

Marcel brings decades of experience building relationships in the healthcare domain to contextflow as its Head of Business Development. As Executive VP and later CEO of Philips Speech Recognition Services, he built the business from scratch, shaping the global healthcare market before selling the business to Nuance Communications for $100M. His healthcare and speech know-how propelled him to become a serial entrepreneur, co-founding Telecats (interactive voice response and speech technology), National Decision Support Company (Clinical Decision Support), Superevent (professional conference app technology) and NLC (European healthtech venture builder). Radiologists have Marcel to thank for introducing the ESR iGuide to the EMEA market. At contextflow, he is responsible for developing partnerships and sales strategy. Originally from the Netherlands, Marcel holds a Master of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science from Delft University of Technology and an MBA in Healthcare IT from Erasmus University in Rotterdam.

People would be surprised to learn…that I’ve been married for over 25 years to my high school sweetheart and am a proud father of 3 daughters. 

If I wasn’t working as Head of Business Development, I would be…playing more golf, surfing more and playing piano in a rock band!

Most rewarding part of my job: Establishing new partnerships
