I am married, have 2 sons and a daughter who are living independently but still like to come home, were I live with my wife and my dog. Sport has always played an important role in my life and I am happy that I can still do my bit of rowing and cycling. It is nice to be part of a company that really stimulates a vital lifestyle of its employees.
I have spent many years in commercial and general management of mid- to large size companies. Both as employed member of management teams as well as company owner I have been active in supplying capital goods to the producers of consumer products worldwide. I have supported customers in Europe, the USA, Mexico, Russia and a number of countries in Asia. I am a strong believer in the necessity to understand the processes and challenges of our customers and to act as a partner rather than as a supplier. I am glad that the people and the management of Tanis share this view. In a phase of healthy growth, the marketing and sales of Tanis is a vital aspect of company management. I am glad that Leo asked me to support him in the role of Chief Commercial Officer.
It will be a pleasure to manage both the sales processes as they are as well as the adjustment and improvement of sales and after sales services to strengthen our support to our customers even more. I am looking forward to meet you all face-to-face. I hope that you will take the Interpack as an opportunity to do so. Please visit us at our booth C20 in hall 3, from May 7 till May 13.
