My preference is always to be together in the office. Adyen is such a special place that after a recent medical procedure, I returned to work at the first opportunity. After some months pushing myself, I now realize that this approach will not lead to the fastest recovery.
As much as I enjoy being back in the office with all of you, I need to iterate on my approach and prioritize taking as much time as needed to recuperate. While I will still actively participate in strategic decision making, I expect to not be present in the office throughout the upcoming 6-8 weeks.
We are lucky to have such a strong leadership team, whom I trust entirely to manage in my absence with zero disruption to the business.
I thank you all for your understanding and look forward to seeing you soon.
