Senior Meteorologist, Operations Manager (LinkedIn).
My first experience in the world of meteorology was back in the early 1990s. The first years of my career were with KNMI at Schiphol Airport and then from 1994 in De Bilt. At De Bilt I specialised in media forecasts for newspaper, telephone, radio, and road traffic (especially network control). Following this I worked for WNI, specialising in offshore /maritime forecasts, leading a 25-member strong forecast team.
In 2009, I was offered the opportunity to help build a new weather company with a small team from scratch called Infoplaza BV. It was a fantastic opportunity and one I grabbed with both hands. I form part of the meteorological editorial team, represent Infoplaza to external parties as well as providing contact points for data suppliers to Infoplaza.
