'Schiphol makes the Netherlands a larger country. But we don't just create value for the economy. We balance the economic perspective with the social perspective. We have many stakeholders who have different interests that are all equally relevant. This makes working at Schiphol challenging and very rewarding. We focus on the point on the horizon, while we continue to make short and longterm assessments about the future of the airport. That is what keeps me sharp. Two of my favourite personal destinations from Schiphol are Toulouse and South Africa. My wife and and I enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Toulouse in an old farmhouse on a spacious piece of land. And I enjoy South Africa because of its beautiful scenery and great wines.'
