Kees Brouwer has been appointed to the role of Managing Director for Spanninga Group, effective 1st July.
The appointment will give CEO and owner Feike Spanninga more time to focus on the strategic aspects of the company.
Spanninga said: “We hired Kees in addition to our strategic management team. I’m looking forward to further develop and strengthen the company together with him.”
Brouwer brings a wealth of experience to the role, having previously worked for Photonis Technologies in France for 22 years in several roles including Managing Engineer, Technical Director and COO.
Brouwer has a background in physics, meaning the technical facet of bicycle lights is not an unknown field for him. Alongside this he studied business administration, with this combination of technical and business knowledge seen as a ‘perfect basis’ for his new role, according to the Spanninga Group.
