My name is Rik de Koning and I work as a Functional Consultant for Portiva, which is one of the larger Office 365 implementation partners in The Netherlands.

I started my career in 2011 as a SharePoint support engineer and in 2013, I went to become a SharePoint consultant where I did various projects on SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2013. In the last couple of years I started focusing more and more on Office 365, especially on SharePoint Online, Power Apps and Power Automate (formerly known as Microsoft Flow).

I like being challenged and there are always some challenges when implementing these services.

When I’m not working, I like spend some time with my family (girlfriend and son), hang out with friends, do some sports (like fitness, running, kitesurfing and snowboarding) playing videogames and just relax a little.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
