Gijs Dullaert is the chairman of AIMMS. He has spent over 25 years within the technology industry. In the past 15 years, Gijs has led AIMMS to become a successful technology company with offices in the US, the Netherlands and Singapore.

AIMMS’ mission is to bring the benefits of Prescriptive Analytics to society. We are passionate about putting the power of our ‘optimization analytics’ in the hands of people, making its application valuable and enjoyable. We provide our customers with our AIMMS software to support fast and intelligent decision-making, with a focus on Supply Chain Management and Operations.

In October 2016, Gijs stepped down as CEO of AIMMS by signing the Holacracy constitution. Since then, the AIMMS team embarked on a journey of self-organization. They embraced Holacracy as a company-wide self-management practice, in which authority and decision-making are distributed to teams and roles, rather than through a management hierarchy.

Gijs is a firm believer in marrying care and high performance at AIMMS; self-organization may lead to great results, but needs to be invigorated by purpose and a compassionate culture to create an agile and inspiring organization for the long run.

Gijs holds a master’s degree in Petroleum and Reservoir Engineering from the Delft University of Technology. He currently lives with his spouse near Amsterdam and they have four children.
