Koen – Foreman
Since 1998 I have been working with Omexom. During my first 10 years I’ve worked in the pharmaceutical industry. In 2008, I made the transition to the high voltage industry. Because of the completely different techniques, I had a lot to learn the first few years.
After five years, I prepared my first power station and managed some colleagues. In May 2016 I was appointed as Foreman. The first weeks I had to adjust; I had to place orders, prepare schedules, write safety procedures, supervise the projects from A to Z … all by myself.
I am still learning and I try to organize my work as efficiently as possible. However, a foreman is nothing without skilled employees, so I pay close attention to the team spirit and guide young workers within the team, as they are the future.
