Only occasionally you come across people that combine expert know-how, outstanding leadership skills and warm personality, and I was lucky enough to have had this experience with Jeroen. I had the privilege of working with Jeroen for a year as a fellow team lead during a challenging period of a rapid market transformation from traditional oil and gas to renewables. In this complex environment Jeroen remains his focus and his empathic leadership style. Jeroen is communicative, able to transfer his ideas in a clear and concise manner to all stakeholders at all levels. On a personal level, Jeroen has this special ability to make you feel welcome and accepted as you are, that I will miss for sure. As a team member or a leader, Jeroen earns my highest recommendation. (Ron van Breukelen)
I’ve worked with Jeroen for roughly 5 years at Heerema and can absolutely recommend him if you are looking for a manager that puts his team first while ensuring company targets are met. Genuine interest in people combined with a good sense for stakeholder management and results make Jeroen a valuable asset to any company.
I have participated in a workshop organized and led by Jeroen,
the workshop was about the essence of change and how to achieve it.
It was a very creative workshop, which really made you think and act, all in a positive and enthusiastic spirit. (Wim de Boer)
During the time we have done business together, Jeroen managed this in a professional, very constructive and collaborative way, always aiming for the 'win-win'
Jeroen has successfully set up the EPC group (22 fte) and managed the team efficiently, resulting in a great performance on the billion dollar SURF project Kaombo, for example.
Jeroen often took initiative and ownership, in a broad sense, to improve the performance of the people and the department (70fte).
In addition I’d like to recommend his Supply Chain / Business development skills. Detailed preparation and a co-operative mindset makes him successful, effectively shown for Brazil end 2017. (Dimitri van Baarlen)
Jeroen is a very pleasant & skilled people manager who gets the best out of his team, truly interested in what drives people and gives them the freedom to initiate and work out their ideas effectively.
In his position as Manager EPC Services he effectively resourced and coached the EPC Supply Chain team which executed a 3.5 bn dollar investment, below budget. With his support I was able to implement a Procurement Cockpit and conduct Finance sessions for Procurement.
As I having made the transfer from Oil & Gas to renewable's, am sure that at some point other industries than Oil & Gas will benefit from Jeroen's capabilities. (Peter Gill)
I’ve had the pleasure of working in Jeroen’s team after coming back from Singapore under difficult personal circumstances. He is a real people person with great empathy and right level of empowerment to his direct reports. I therefore believe he will be successful in any industry where he can coach and energize his team.
