Herwi Rijsdijk and Arno van 't Wout take on new roles Hines abc westland
abc westland business park was taken over by the American property investor Hines in May 2019. Six months earlier in October 2018, the agrologistics business park Fresh Park Venlo, similar to ABC Westland, had already been taken over. In order to make even better use of the knowledge and experience gained within both fresh parks, Hines has decided to appoint Herwi Rijsdijk - until now director of Hines abc westland - as commercial and development manager for both fresh parks in Poeldijk and Venlo.
"Fresh Park Venlo and abc westland work in the same market and I'm going to make sure we use each other's strengths," Herwi explains. In order to take over a large number of tasks from Herwi at ABC Westland, Arno van 't Wout has been appointed property manager Hines abc westland since April 1st. Arno: "We are facing new challenges. And if nothing is certain, much is possible." Furthermore, Cor Bouwman, our current facility manager, will leave Hines abc westland on July 1st after 21 years to enjoy a well-earned retirement and Arno will also take over his duties. Arno will therefore also be responsible for the entire technical service team.
Arno van 't Wout was born, raised and still lives in De Lier and after secondary and higher horticultural school he worked as a manager in various Westland glasshouse horticulture companies. After that, he rigorously changed track, completed the higher hotel school in Maastricht and had his own hotel/restaurant. Over the years, Arno has mainly developed on an organisational, financial and analytical level. With this knowledge and experience he has, in our opinion, all the qualities to further develop Hines abc westland under the leadership of Herwi and together with the existing team. We wish him every success with this!
