As of the 1st of September, Sander van der Meer will be assuming his post as the new Commercial Manager Indonesia at TOS. In this position, he will be the sparring partner for our clients to improve and expand our services in the region. He will also be responsible for improving & optimising processes of the crewing operation at our Jakarta office. Sander: ‘I started on the 1st of March at our TOS HQ in Rotterdam. The last few months I‘ve gotten to know the company and my colleagues in the Netherlands very well. I’ve also visited the Jakarta office several times. Next month I will be leaving this beautiful city of Rotterdam. Together with my girlfriend and newborn daughter, we’ll be living in Jakarta for the coming years. A real adventure!’
Sander is already a familiar name and face in the industry. As Crewing Manager, he worked for over six years for Anthony Veder, a shipping company of gas tankers. In this period, Indonesia was his special assignment and he visited their Indonesia crew offices regularly. Sander: ‘There are many developments in the region and the demand for Indonesian seafarers is increasing. So, I will be busy optimising our internal processes, keeping the quality of our services high and in line with HQ. The office staff is already familiar and very professional. The lines of communication with our HQ in Rotterdam are short. I’m looking forward to creating a dynamic and smooth operation for our (future) clients.’
At the end of March, Sander and Ivan Wagenaar (Executive Manager Sales TOS) visited the Jakarta office to get acquainted with the office staff. Also, Michal Gorski (Senior Consultant TOS Poland) was present, on his way to a client visit in Australia.
