Ir. Frans van der linde, Consultant

“I am an engineer, but most of all an entrepreneur. Running my own business has always been my ambition; I want to determine my own course. After managing Zonneveld ingenieurs with Jan van der Windt for almost 30 years, it is now time to hand it over to our successors. Jan and I took over from Jaap Zonneveld in 1990. Harm and Martin took over in june 2017. This is how Zonneveld ingenieurs can maintain its independance. I am proud of what our team together with our clients and businesspartnes has accomplished over the years. We are still one of the best engineering companies in the Netherlands.

This next period I will remain a consultant for Zonneveld.

Besides, I will remain active as an arbiter for the Council of Arbitration, but I will also have more time for other important matters, including my family and good friends”
