Roelant van Herwaarden
‘Working together to raise operations to a higher level, that's what gives me energy. I enjoy bringing about improvements, using an approach with a practical focus. And with a healthy balance between results and organizational development. It's precisely the variation between different organizations, sectors, countries, company cultures, roles and issues that makes my work so fascinating. Both at the management level and on the shop floor.’
Roelant has more than 20 years' experience in operations, continuous improvement projects and change management. He has a quick grasp of operational issues and potential improvements and is able to turn these into an approach that fits the organization and its ambitions.
Roelant studied electrical engineering at Eindhoven Technical University and business administration at the IBO Business School. Before moving into the services sector, he worked for more than 15 years in operations and engineering in the international foodstuffs industry (Heineken, Danone) in countries including Russia. He has been a partner at ARV Group since late 2010.
