Tell us about your work
My primary responsibility is supervising the Customer Support team in their roles. I oversee our technial support, repairs and training efforts. I also work on special projects as they arise.
The favorite part about my job is empowering my team to achieve their goals.
One of my favorite part about working at Ag Leader is the international diversity. Because of all our touchpoints, I get to know a lot of people and cultures – both customers and employees. I also appreciate the approachability and open attitudes of my co-workers.
Tell us about yourself
Outside of work I enjoy going to music concerts and festivals. I enjoy a diverse range of music from older 60s-70s rock to today’s electronic music. I also have begun to try my hand in oil painting, though it is still very new to me. My favorite food is everything.
The best place I’ve traveled was the western US including National Parks, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas. I did this trip just a few years ago and it was very memorable. The scenery was amazing as there are not too many mountains in the Netherlands!
My favorite books are by John Man. John is a British author who writes about history, historical events and culture. He is a great storyteller and has a unique way of presenting the facts and information.
