Simacan welcomes new colleagues: Jord Koot and René Bruijne

Jord and René are both senior professionals in their work field, they started at Simacan to strengthen our teams in business development and sales.

Amersfoort, April 20, 2020 – At Simacan, the open and supplier-independent cloud platform for digital collaboration in transport and logistics, Jord Koot has already started in his function as Sales Manager and Rene Bruijne as Director of Business Strategy Europe & Innovation. Both gentlemen are no strangers to the world of transport and logistics; Jord’s former position was Chief Commercial Officer at Route42 and René Bruijne was the man behind the concept of e-CMR in his last position as managing director at Transfollow.

Both will help Simacan realize the ambitious growth that started last year after the European Commission has allocated a European subsidy for innovative and ground-breaking ideas.

Jord’s focus will be on the -scalable- further development of the commercial organization in the European growth areas where Simacan offers its platform.

Jord: “Simacan offers enormous opportunities and potential to all players in the supply chain. Bringing this innovative power of Simacan to the European market matches my work background, past experiences and motives. I would be nice to bring this enormous potential of the Simacan platform to commercial maturity, and of course, together with the entire Simacan team!”

René Bruijne: “My work experience and ambition to digitize the supply chain fits very well at Simacan. I have always followed Simacan with great interest and I was impressed by the company. My motivation is, besides making the logistics chain shorter, smarter and cheaper, also to make it more sustainable, all with CSR goals in mind, by taking responsibility for our environment and the future of our planet.”

Alongside Jord, René and about 8 other new colleagues, Simacan expects to further expand the total workforce in the next two years. Simacan aspires to be the most attractive IT employer in Amersfoort and surrounding area.
