Director Procurement & Contracting: 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 Procurement department. My teams and I focus on quality, timeliness, innovation and cost efficiency. That’s how we contribute to Schiphol’s ambition of becoming, and subsequently remaining, the world’s most sustainable and high quality airports. I enjoy travelling, but I don’t want beach holidays! The best trips are with family in the mountains, where there aren’t many tourists. The combination of natural beauty, tranquillity, delicious food and opportunities to cycle is what my family and I enjoy the most.
