Working with many talented colleagues from whom I am learning every day

VP High-rise Building Solutions,
The Netherlands.

I lead the high-rise team that supports our local business units to grow sales in the high-rise building segment through developing & marketing innovative products and services that are relevant for specifiers and developers. A key activity we are presently working on is the Post-Merger Integration of Studor Active Drainage Ventilation technology, which we acquired in October 2017.

The global aspect of this role brings me in contact with many different cultures. It is very inspiring to be able to contribute to our transformation journey by sharing my wide experience with other Aliaxis colleagues and stakeholders. Helping our local units to win high-rise building projects through technical specification is also very rewarding, as many of these buildings are so-called landmark buildings that form the skyline of the city location. Together with the central and local teams, we are all passionate to “manage water for better high-rise living”.

Since its creation in 2003, Aliaxis has been in permanent change, which has brought me many opportunities in change management. I started working for the group in 1989 and my role as Group Vice President is now the 10th role I have assumed within Aliaxis. Before that, I have worked in many (international) sales, marketing, innovation & general management roles. Making changes to structurally improve the business and working with many talented colleagues from whom I am learning every day, provides a lot of job satisfaction. Having the opportunity to work with many international colleagues on the transformation of the group, makes Aliaxis my best place to work.

Rob, Group VP High-rise Building Solutions, The Netherlands.
