As the grandson of founder Tonny Goedmakers, it is a privilege to be able to lead the company and to ensure that the number of meaningful jobs can continue to grow. When I was 15, I started doing cleaning and service work during the holidays, which is how I developed my interest in service provision. It is precisely the diversity of the people you work with and the positive impact we can bring that makes our services so special."
