From our ICT department in Steenderen, we automate all the business processes of Aviko worldwide. And so our work spans from the potatoes' delivery to our factories till delivery of our products to customers. This means that we must connect various processes, departments and people with each other, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As a Manager, I lead ICT Professionals who have their own areas of expertise. For instance, we have a Consultant for security, a Consultant for archiving, for performance, Internet, you name it. Everyone focuses on a specific part of the core processes in Aviko.
I'm primarily responsible for Change and Programme Management. Our ICT department assists Aviko employees with changing the processes. Aviko is a pretty ambitious company, which means that each time another company is bought, we at the ICT department have our work cut out. I have been working at Aviko for 25 years and still no day is the same. I truly enjoy working for Aviko. Aside from work, I like being active in the football club in Vorden, where I live, and I like organising events. You know, connecting people…that really appeals to me.
