Roelof Bos new KWPN General Director

As of July 1, Roelof Bos will be appointed as General Director by the KWPN board. Since the departure of Bastiaan Meerburg, Roelof has already assumed the management tasks in collaboration with the management team. All parties have appreciated working with Roelof very much, so it has been converted into a permanent appointment.

Roelof has a lot of experience as a director in the world of associations. Before his job at the KWPN, he worked for a long time within the commercial banking division of Rabobank. He looks forward to further shaping the KWPN organization in his new position. “I have had a great time working with my colleagues over the past period. In close consultation with the General Board, we have been able to continue working on a good basis for our office organization and association. The world around us has changed considerably, resulting in many challenges but also plenty of opportunities. Our focus is mainly on the core tasks of the association such as registration and selection, and promoting our fantastic KWPN brand. Enthusiastic breeders and members, that’s what we do it for!”

Chairman of the board Andries van Daalen: “In recent months, Roelof has run the organization excellently together with the management team. We have seen him grow in this role and believe he is the right person to manage and represent the organization as General Manager. Roelof is a down-to-earth and honest personality with enormous enthusiasm for the equine industry, which he knows inside and out. We are pleased that he is taking up this challenge and are confident that he will fulfill this position well.”
