Where do you live, and where do your companies operate?
I live in a small town called Lansingerland close to Rotterdam, Netherlands. Rotterdam has the biggest Port in Europe and many of our large industrial clients are situated there. Driving to the port only takes 30 minutes which is a great advantage.
What is your location/geography known for?
The Rotterdam port houses almost 40% of Netherlands heavy industry. Close to the sea Rotterdam is able to receive the biggest ships from all over the world en with inland river, railroad and highway connections it plays a very important role within the Europe logistic routes.
What is your background and role?
My background is in mechanical engineering, with an engineering & construction specialty. I have 20 years of experience in industrial safety consulting, focusing on emergency response and fire safety. After 6 years of engineering & construction in Chemical, Oil & Gas and 3 years working at the authorities I joined Antea Group back in 2007. As Project Manager at Antea Group I am responsible for Industrial Safety & Fire Safety, Compliance Management, Emergency Response projects, Energy Transition and information technology projects, I’m always looking for out of the box solutions to help our clients. There is never a dull day in my line of work.
How long have you been a part of Inogen Alliance and what value does the Alliance bring to you as a member?
Inogen Alliance came on my path back in 2016 during the Inogen Alliance event in Rotterdam. Here we demonstrated the use of information technology in compliance management projects. Inogen Alliance will enable Antea Group NL to further expand on low risk & compliance and we foresee a big challenge in energy transition that will require a strong and capable international network for global and local support.
