Upper management changes at Qonnect 25 January 2023

Qonnect has recently implemented leadership changes, which have been ‘in the works’ for some time now, but were only finalised with the October promotion of Daan Schrijen to managing director. 

Daan Schrijen has expanded his function from operational management to the managing director role, effectively concluding the transition of Founder Jan Aarts, from active management as CEO to an advisory level. Daan has been active at Jan’s side with Qonnect since 2014, sharing his experience and carrying this to the current level today.

Qonnect has also recently taken on a new corporate identity and will be introducing new product groups and partnerships in the near future. As new managing director, Daan will oversee and manage the company in these new ventures, as well as navigating it through the challenges of the modern world.

At the same time, Qonnect’s focus will remain, as ever, on being a dependable stock partner – delivering high service and quality, as well as original industry design, while remaining a flexible and highly responsive partner.
