“I am very much looking forward to starting this new challenge,” Schoenmaker said in a statement.
Schoenmaker will start his new role in mid-February.
“It is an especially exciting move for me to join the METS team, as I have been passionate about sailing since childhood,” he said. “To work in the nautical and marine industry is a privilege. METS is a great show and a superb opportunity for me to develop in both a personal as well as a professional capacity.”
“After a thorough search, we have found in Roel a highly skilled person and a perfect match with the METS team,” said Irene Dros, maritime domain manager at Amsterdam RAI. “His enthusiasm, professional approach, fresh ideas, customer focus and sharp strategic eye for a mutually successful outcome will bring significant added value to METS and its exhibitors.”
