Rob van der Meer comes from a traditional horticultural region in the Netherlands: the area around Roelofarendsveen. Historically, this area was a growing region for strawberries, gherkins and pods, but later also ornamentals, cut flowers and pot plants. These days, Roelofarendsveen is well known for the many tulips that are cultivated from bulb to carpets of colour in modern companies. Rob (54) still lives there, together with his wife and two daughters.
His father and the preceding generations were all growers. And Rob’s career began in the glasshouse too, as pot-plant grower, followed by the cultivation and propagation of perennials and outdoor flowers. And that's how he developed his green fingers. Studies in cultivation techniques and management training have expanded his expertise.
He has used this expertise as manager and person responsible for cultivation techniques in various companies, eventually working as operational manager at a production company for vegetables and herbs. Is there a better CV imaginable for working as commercial product manager at Maan BioBased Products?
