Until 1 July 2010 I was the DGA and founder of the Creaal Group. The Creaal Group encompassed a number of subsidiary companies including i-design BV, Beeq BV and Sporty Chain BV. Through the years I was also involved in various companies including iSee iKnow BV, Vidi-o BV and Eye-Wear Europe BV. During the sale of the Creaal Group I acquired Eye-wear Europe BV.

Eye-wear Europe BV is active in the optics market and since 2009 the online market leader in the Benelux. I run this company together with the young, ambitious entrepreneur Bernd Damme. Eye-wear was nominated for various prizes such as Thuiswinkel (Home-shopping) award, de Loey award and Sprout. The company's operations reaches far beyond Dutch borders. Milestones of the eyewear business founded, include establishing a specially created shop dedicated to Porsche and being the first Dutch company to have a Facebook store. In the first half of 2013, Eye-wear.nl was sold to a Dutch consortium.

In August 2010 His Book (as a co-writer) titled "Raak effective communication from informing to co-creating” was published and became a management top 100 book.

As a public speaker and judgje member he is often asked to address issues related to Social Media, Entrepreneurship and E-commerce. From his vast experience as a self-employed businessman, he can share his views on the "ins and outs" of entrepreneurship. To do this he exposes the differences between the new and the old style of working. Inspiring and challenging, are the most important trademarks of his lectures.

Besides successfully doing businesses, Beker is a Father of 3 kids and he's currently enrolled as advisor of several business and boardroom consultant.
