As a supervisory board member at the 360-year-old family company van Eeghen, I managed to strike a good balance between oversight and offering advisory input on the “what” during my 8-year tenure. The company experienced significant growth after a thorough revision of its strategy, achieved through a collaborative effort between the management and the Board of Directors. After two four-year appointments, I left behind a successful and thriving company.

Currently, I serve as the Chairman of the Board at KUBO, a global player in high-end greenhouse construction projects. This is also a family business, albeit with private equity as a minority shareholder in the recent past. This new situation requires a slightly different approach to the board’s role.

Additionally, I am a member of the Advisory Board at Nuversys, where I contribute to the commercial expansion of their technology.

My interest lies in non-executive positions in B-to-B companies and the non-profit sector.
