Chief Procurement Officer: Job Verkerke

Schiphol plays a crucial part as a mainport in the Dutch economy and for Dutch society. It’s both a privilege and a challenge to contribute to Schiphol from the Purchasing department. My teams and I focus on quality, innovation and cost-efficiency. In that way, we contribute to Schiphol’s ambition to remain Europe's Preferred Airport, and to retain that position. I like to travel, but I don’t like beach holidays! I prefer to visit New Zealand with my family. The combination of natural beauty, absolute tranquility, delicious food and a great culture makes it a great country to visit. If I’m in Europe, I prefer to visit the mountains where I can indulge in my passion for cycling.
