Pieter de Jong
General Manager

Pieter, yes another Pieter, chooses to go with the title ‘General Manager’ for now. Maybe he likes it because it sounds tough or because it has some status to it. However everyone knows that a ‘General Manager’ could mean anything. Negative? He doesn’t think so, cause who wouldn’t want to be able to do everything? It’s like a childhood dream. Doing everything -that Harmen and (the other Pieter) don’t or won’t do- is exactly what Pieter does on a daily basis.
