The independent voice of the global moving industry


Robert-Jan Voerman to take over as CEO

Oct 02, 2012
On 1 January, 2013, Robert-Jan Voerman will take over the position of CEO of Voerman International from Piet van Herk. The new appointment represents a new generation at the helm of the company.
Voerman International, founded in 1986 by Ed Voerman, has grown into a leading removal company in the Netherlands, both on the domestic as well as on the international market.

In 2006 it was decided to separate the domestic and international division, after which the international division with its head office in The Hague and branches in Moscow and Prague, continued independently under the well-known brand ‘Voerman International’. In that same year, Ed Voerman handed over his position as CEO to, then financial director, Piet van Herk, but remained actively involved as chairman of the Supervisory Board. Under the management of Piet van Herk and his fellow directors Robert-Jan Voerman, Edwin van de Vliet and Rob Sybesma, the company enjoyed a period of continued growth.

After 7 years as CEO, Piet van Herk will hand over his position on 1 January, 2013, to the current Commercial Director Robert-Jan Voerman. Piet van Herk will stay on the Managing Board as vice CEO, thus actively supporting the transition process and maintaining responsibility for various important projects.

The new generation is also taking a lead role in other areas of the business: two employees, who were practically brought up in the removal industry and who have earned their own spurs at Voerman International, joined the managing board as per 1 July, 2012. Wiebe van Bockel, Head of Sales, became the Commercial Director and Michiel van Herk, Head of Financial Administration was promoted to Financial Director.
