Marco de Jong has worked at Van Duuren as Control Tower Manager since January 2018. Before Marco joined Van Duuren he worked at Foot Locker, where as a client he became acquainted with Van Duuren. He had previously worked for various logistics companies in several positions, from planning to account management and business development.
‘At Foot Locker I had years of a very fine working relationship with Van Duuren and always greatly valued the partnership. In fact I didn’t feel like a client but more a real partner in helping our joint customer, the store’ says Marco about his experience with Van Duuren when he was working on the side of their client: ‘The enthusiasm, the drive and the absolute will to be better that the competition appeal to me a great deal. I think it’s fine to be part of that, and I feel very much at one with the personal core values that Jeroen and Jasper strive for.
I hope that, together with my colleagues, I can take the next step towards growth and to the further professionalization of the company and processes. I also hope that the Control Tower will play an important role in this.’
