John was accompanied by his wife Mintje, their two sons and one of their daughters. They were welcomed by all his Dutch Barenbrug colleagues with a big round of applause.
Bastiaan Barenbrug and Jos van der Wielen (General Manager of Barenbrug Holland), shared warm words on the journey John has travelled at Barenbrug, from the start of his career as a Product Manager to becoming Chairman of the Board.
On behalf of the staff association of our Dutch employees Astrid van den Brink organized the "Who knows John best" quiz.
John also received a video message from James Schneider, General Manager of Barenbrug USA, who spoke kind words and looked back on John's achievements in the United States.
