Ruud Knorr interchange Veiling Rhein-Maas for Dutch Flower Group31 October 2016
Ruud Knorr, director of Veiling Rhein-Maas in Germany, plans to leave his position as of 1 January 2017. He wants to open the way at the auction in Straelen-Herongen for an as-yet-to-be-appointed successor who will be able to lead the company into the next phase of its growth. Ruud Knorr has held the position of director of Veiling Rhein-Maas since 1 January 2011 and after six successful years, he is ready to pursue his career elsewhere. On 1 February 2017, he will take on the position of division director plants.
Veiling Rhein-Maas arose through a joint venture between Royal FloraHolland Venlo, Landgard Herongen and Lüllingen. Throughout his time as director, Knorr has led the merger of these different organisations and worked to establish Veiling Rhein-Maas as an international marketplace for ornamental plants and flowers. Among other things, he completed a culture process through which three corporate cultures and two nationalities were brought together. Knorr successfully established a firm bond between individual suppliers and with customers.
Ruud says thanks to organisation
Ruud Knorr: "I had a wonderful time at Veiling Rhein-Maas and I am thankful to Royal FloraHolland and Landgard for the opportunity to further develop both myself and the company. I look back with pride on what we have achieved and when I see the degree of cooperation in our company, I can conclude that I am leaving an organisation behind that is solid as a rock. I very much enjoy being challenged and having the opportunity to grow, and this is the right moment for me to make this difficult decision. I would like to thank all my colleagues, the suppliers and the customers for their trust."
Lucas Vos, CEO of Royal FloraHolland: "I would like to thank Ruud Knorr for all his efforts these past years. With a great deal of commitment and enthusiasm, he contributed to the development of Veiling Rhein-Maas." In the coming period, Royal FloraHolland and Landgard will begin looking for a suitable successor.
