I’m Roel, Nomad’s Project Manager based in Holland. I was born in Gorinchem in the Netherlands but lived in Holland for most of my life, so I consider that my home. I studied Industrial automation at Hogeschool Utrecht, which is the equivalent of a technical bachelor education. I also served as a sergeant with the Engineers and worked as a commander on the Leopard Bridge laying tank. Afterwards, I started my first job as Project Manager at Royal Boskalis Westminster, a dredging company working all over the world – which I really enjoyed! Whilst working for that company I worked in the United Arab Emirates and Germany. Since then, I have always worked within the profession of Project Management, eventually starting at Nomad Digital in 2016.
In my spare time I love to walk my dog, and I recently got a new puppy! Another hobby of mine is cooking, and I love to cook for groups. One of my idols from the culinary world is Heston Blumenthal, as his dishes are always a challenge to make.
