Frank Smetsers is a fan of the fine print. For Frank, the best things in life are the little things. The details. And the art of not getting lost in them. Picking up the pace where necessary. Bold action, but thorough consideration. Pragmatic, but knowing the system. Promises are made to be kept. And to do that, Frank needs to know everything. Down to the details. Delivering the right custom work is his trademark. Work in which the human side of the case is written large. Tailor made work is, after all, people work. It has to fit. The company, the business person, the human being.
