Some sad news today from TomTom (link to: tomtom.com) as 136 roles have been made redundant of which 57 are in the Netherlands. I would suspect a few 10s might be in London.
Amsterdam, 29 September 2017, 11:00 am CET – TomTom (TOM2) today reconfirmed its strategy to build on its leading position in navigation technologies and to provide location content, software and services to business customers.
In line with the strategic review announced in the Q2 2017 quarterly results, TomTom is reorganising parts of its Consumer Sports business. As a result, 136 roles have been made redundant, of which 57 are in the Netherlands.
TomTom will continue to sell consumer sports products, and support its Sports customers.
