In my little free time you can often find me swimming in the outside pool in our town. Also I like to walk in nature where it is always fascinating to look at everything thats grows and flourishes. This is also a reason to give my full support to and be a member of the Dutch Rare Breed Survival Trust (SZH).
As account manager I am in close contact with our current clients and new business relations. Together with my experienced colleagues I set up new business activities in the areas where Ergon operates. In addition to my customer service responsibilities, I try to contribute to the introduction of new selected varieties into the market. All this in cooperation with our technical sales engineer.
In order to relax I play football (soccer) and, of course, I also like to watch a good football game. I work out every week and like to watch Formula One races on television.
My main responsibilities are Ergon’s stock management, variety registration and customer service. I aim to carry out these administrative tasks in the best possible way.
At home I love to work in my garden to grow my own vegetables.
Being one of the customer service employees my job concerns the scheduling of orders and processing the in- and outcoming orders. Besides that I focus on public relations, a diverse task that varies from the website to social media and to film and photography. It is enjoyable for me to use my background in mediastudies at this diverse task.
When I’m not working I enjoy cooking, reading, watching TV and films and visiting museums.
Responsible for all non-sales related activities within Ergon. In addition, I am involved with all our website issues and the photography of our products both in our greenhouses and on location.
In my free time you can find me, of course, with my camera taking pictures from all that passes by. For many years now I have been dancing with a close sacred dance ladies group, for me a way to achieve a state of inner peace and tranquility.
As it is my job to coordinate all activities at the seed packing unit I must see to the correct and on time packing of the vegetable seeds. And so I do this task together with my colleagues Margriet and Anneke. I also take care of the germ tests, process the results and carry out different administrative tasks. During the growing season I assist Ergon's crop care employees in the greenhouses.
In my spare time I like to exercise, cycle and walk. With my children and friends I like to go out to Texel, for instance. Other favorites of mine are shopping in a nice city, visiting music festivals and going to the theater.

accurate work in our greenhouses together with my colleagues. From sowing,
planting and all further activities, including the harvest, we ensure that all
vegetable trials succeed as good as possible in order to evaluate the various
varieties for the different regions all over the world.
In my free time I like to walk, I regularly go to music performances of different bands, mostly in the blues-rock style and for 35 years now I have been playing in the table tennis competition, which I still enjoy doing.
Assisting and advising the key clients of Ergon in the Middle East, North Africa and Eastern Europe. Name of the game is trying to find and to grow the right variety at the right place and time in order to optimize the yield for the farmers. Therefore I frequently visit the areas to stay in close contact with our agents and the farmers to exchange information and to learn more about their specific needs.
In order to relax I like to walk in nature together with our dog Boeddha.
I joined Ergon beginning of 2020 to strengthen the commercial team, returning to the agricultural roots. Working side by side with Jan, Gert-Jan and Edwin, aiming to preserve and establish strong and long-lasting partnerships with our current and potential new clients.

As I just moved to Amsterdam, I spend my spare time discovering the hidden gems of our capital city and if the weather allows it, I like to gather up with friends and family to go race cycling.
In my portfolio I have a wide number of accounts from various areas and with different backgrounds. I take care that our clients are getting the proper seeds, the desired packing and the required documents. Together with one of my colleagues I also carry out the germination tests.

As employee seed packing unit it is very important
to be accurate and precise. The logistic
