From an early age, Joep has had an affinity for technology and production processes. Making a total product from different parts and actually seeing results is what has always intrigued him. This interest led him to pursue his bachelor's degree in Technical Business Administration. After obtaining his bachelor, he wanted to gain more knowledge about the external environment of companies. Following his bachelor, he therefore started the master's degree in Management of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Milan. The master taught him how companies can exploit opportunities operationally, organizationally and financially. Since high school, Joep has been working at Flex Industries. This company develops and produces internal logistics solutions in the field of automation. In the more than ten years that he has worked here, he has been involved in many processes within the company. This has made him familiar with operational, tactical and strategic issues of a company.
In his spare time, Joep likes to go motorcycling and running. He also started kite surfing last year. Furthermore, Joep has a great passion for Italy. This passion eventually led him to pursue his master's degree in Milan.
