What is your background?
After finalizing my studies at the Rotterdam University of Applied Science (mechanical engineering) in 1994, my career started at a trading company selling all kind of pneumatic and hydraulic systems to the Oil & Gas market. Via Willich Gresel’ (a construction & insulation company) I moved to a project management position at ‘Technisch Bureau Dahlman’ (nowadays known as ‘Royal Dahlman’). Dahlman is a system-integrator for skid-mounted filtration units and dust/ liquid filter equipment active in the Oil & Gas and Petrochemical/ Chemical industry. After approximately 8 years working as Project Manager I was promoted to ‘Manager Projects’ becoming responsible for all projects within the Project Management Department. In 2009 I had the opportunity to move to Escher Process Modules where after 2 years I was promoted to ‘Deputy Director’ becoming operationally (technical and financial) end-responsible for all tenders and projects.
What is your mission at 360°KAS?
I’m proud to be have become part of this very experienced, young and dynamic team. With the current worldwide developments in the oil & gas market, I like the fact that 360°KAS is active in a broader range of markets with various competences. We have our own production facility, which was an important decision driver for me to start at 360°KAS. My personal mission is to confirm the glory of the ‘Imtech era’. To realize this goal, we need the right people with the right expertise to achieve our growth targets. But above all, we need to make sure we continue delivering the quality that our customers expect. That means getting everything right, in the right order, the first time round!
