Gamer / Wandelaar / Helpende vriend

Ik heb meer hobby’s dan er uren in een dag zijn. Van wandelen tot gamen met vrienden. Ik bouwde zelfs een PC voor mijn partner. En ik liep onlangs 10 kilometer dankzij de TVH Nudge Challenges. Dat is meer dan ik in de tien jaar daarvoor samen gelopen heb.

Ik probeer altijd optimistisch te zijn. Met een positieve ingesteldheid maak je het verschil. In mijn rol heb ik veel contact met collega’s van sales tot het magazijn en alles wat daartussen valt. Hen kunnen helpen, is de reden waarom ik mijn job graag doe.

Vader / Basketspeler en coach / Golfer / Ingenieur

Ik ben op 13 minuten van mijn slaapkamer op mijn kantoor. En dan bedoel ik niet eens mijn thuiskantoor. Dat is een luxe. Het geeft me extra tijd voor vrienden en familie en om dingen te doen waarvan ik hou. Zoals golfen en basketten met mijn dochter.
Ik hou van het vertrouwen, de mensen en de cultuur van TVH. We zijn allemaal op dezelfde missie en helpen elkaar om er te geraken. Ieders mening telt in dat verhaal. De mensen maken hier echt het verschil.
