Personnel changes at PartsPoint Group
The PartsPoint Group is continuing its fast growth. The organisation consists of the successful companies Brezan Automaterialen, Staadegaard Automotive and Technische Centrale. In addition, after the sale of the AD activities in Belgium, a new company has been created: AD Netherlands. More focus has been placed on the Brezan formula in Belgium through the takeover of Distri Pieces Auto. To steer all these developments in the right direction, the management team of PartsPoint Group has recently been adjusted.
The management team continues to be led by Chief Executive Officer Cor Baltus. The team also consists of experienced members Johan van Veldhuisen (Chief Financial Officer), Peter Meyer (Central Operations Director) and Simon Staadegaard (Staadegaard-TC Director). New to the management team is Roel de Bijl; he has been appointed Network Operations Director, responsible for the Brezan chain in the Netherlands and Belgium. Roel has extensive experience in commercial and technical service provision, including for MotracLinde and Coca Cola Enterprises.
At the same time, Frank Doorenbos has been appointed Innovation & Business Development Director. After the substantial investments by PartsPoint’s parent company, AutoBinck Group, in Smart Mobility, Innovation will also demand much management attention in the existing companies.
From 1 July 2017, Fred Kamphuis will join in the position of TECH360 Project Manager. The new PartsPoint concept TECH360 is a complete technical support programme for the motor industry. Fred has extensive and relevant experience for this position: in his previous job as Marketing Manager Concepts, he was responsible for setting up technical training programmes for the automotive industry.
