Director of Schiphol Real Estate: Jan Willem Weissink
'Schiphol is at the heart of society and almost every day it is in the global spotlight. This is not surprising given the airport's social and economic importance. I find it fascinating that Schiphol links more than 300 direct destinations and there are 500 companies located here. It is our privilege, along with a dedicated team real estate professionals, to further develop Airport City into a true meeting place for guests, visitors and more than 65,000 people who work at Schiphol. The personal trips I prefer are to countries in Southeast Asia and southern Africa. This is because I spent part of my childhood there. And flying on the return journey on home carrier KLM is the ultimate feeling of coming home.'
