Rogier knows our industry and understands the opportunities and challenges. He looks at the future with a refreshing eye and brings the new leadership and energy that is needed to fulfil the ambitions of Royal Reesink and its operating companies.”

Speaking about his new role, Rogier van der Linde said: “I’m very grateful that I am receiving the trust to lead this company into a new era. This is a great company with a long history and it is an honour to take the helm.

My ambition and my goal for the immediate future are to consolidate the rapid growth the company has undergone in recent years and build the framework that will enable us to move forward as one company. We exist to enable our customers to do their business better, something you achieve by delivering high performance every day and empowering our people to make the right calls for their business and their market.”
