HEC-Holland team is growing steadily and in February we were happy to welcome another new member to join us. Below you can find the greetings and introduction of Bob Bakker, our new commercial supply chain specialist.
HEC-Holland new team member – Who am I?
Hi everyone, I am Bob Bakker, 24 years old and currently living in Tilburg. Last January I graduated as a master of Supply Chain Management at Tilburg University, which ended my time as a student. Before the master program, I studied Business Economics at the University of Applied Sciences in Nijmegen. Nijmegen is the city where I always lived, before I moved to Tilburg one and half years ago. Since I found the job at HEC-Holland, it is now time for me to move back to Nijmegen, where I just found a new home for myself.
I am an enthusiastic, driven and ambitious person who enjoys achieving goals with a team. I think this fits well within the HEC-Holland company where we work hard together to reach the best outcomes. Outside the 40 working hours a week, I spent most of the time on just hanging out with friends, drinking some beers and going to the gym.
My role within the HEC-team
My role within HEC-Holland is a ‘’commercial supply chain specialist’’. I take care of the processes from purchase order until order delivery, together with Cindy and Karin. My focus will be on the coordination of the warehouse processes in our warehouse in Goch, Germany. I have some experience in how to manage fast-moving logistics processes, which will definitely be an advantage for me in this job. I just started a few weeks ago but I already feel like a valued part of the organization. My colleagues are very friendly and supportive and I immediately got a lot of responsibilities.
Thoughts for the future
The cable industry was not really familiar to me before I started in this position. However, now as I have dived more into it during the recent weeks, I have started to understand everything better and my interest in the cable industry has increased in general. I am looking forward to get to know HEC-Holland and our place in the cable industry even more, and to further optimize our logistics processes.
Looking forward to the new challenges and to get in touch with our customers and suppliers!
