Before I confuse everybody with names and positions I thought I would show you how people’s personalities are reflected by their decor.

Let’s go inside. Dirk Brinkman’s office is the first on the right. Don’t be shy, go on in, the CEO is not in today, and if he was he would invite you in with a grin.
