After more than twenty years, Marc Guelen – founder and owner of Hezelburcht – is stepping down from his role as CEO. Effective the 1st of July 2018, he will be succeeded by Jan van Baars, a member of the Hezelburcht Management team since the 1st of January 2018 and former Director of Mortgages at ABN Amro.
I started Hezelburcht in 1995, and over our 23 years we have seen beautiful growth and development as a company. The result is a thriving organisation with more than 80 professionals, ready for the next phase. For me, this is the right time to hand over the day-to-day responsibilities as CEO and I am excited that Jan van Baars has accepted this position.
Jan is a highly motivated and experienced business professional. With the continued support of Hezelburcht’s existing Management team, Jan is absolutely capable of managing Hezelburcht in this new phase. – Marc Guelen, Owner
