The chairman of the board passes the torch to the third generation during the anniversary year

Directie den ouden

After almost 14 years of working passionately for Den Ouden Groep, Chairman of the Board, Jochem Langenhuijzen has decided to retire during the anniversary year.

For the first six years he worked as a Business Economics Adviser, during which he and his team took care of the development of the organisation. Following this, as the Financial Director, for four years he was responsible for internal operations, together with Berrie den Ouden, as director. More than four years ago, he was given the opportunity to take over from Berrie den Ouden as Chairman of the Board. Together with Harm and Rob den Ouden, he completed the management team, with great pleasure. Jochem langenhuijzen held a farewell reception on 31 August 2018, in which he thanked all Den Ouden Group associates for the pleasant collaboration and faith in our company.

Renewed management team

Jeroen den Ouden MSc joined the Den Ouden Group board on 1 January 2018. Just like Rob and Harm den Ouden, Jeroen is one of eight third-generation cousins working for the family business. Because of his proven qualities, he has been asked to become a member of the management team.

A new era has begun

The third generation represents a great challenge to expand the company over the next twenty years and then transfer it to the fourth generation. Besides the long-term goal, the short term is very clear: our aim is to achieve a turnover of 100 million euros in 2020. A nice challenge that we all stand behind.
