Robert Zeemans joins TimeEdit as our new Business Development Manager for Benelux and UK/I - and with that, he becomes TimeEdit's first Dutch employee!
It was about time TimeEdit opened a branch in The Netherlands - and we have done it with a boom! As our first employee in our Utrecht office, we are thrilled to have found a seasoned BDM who has been working in the higher education industry for many years and loves supporting complicated work processes with great software. His name is Robert Zeemans. We've taken a brief chat with Robert about his new role.
Tell us a bit about yourself
Robert: My name is Robert Zeemans and I am from the Netherlands. You heard that right, I am the first ‘boots on the ground’ for the Dutch office. I have a background in Facilities Management and Real Estate Management related processes. At TOPdesk (FMIS) I was responsible for sales in Benelux and Canada. At Lone Rooftop (Space Optimization & Occupancy Analytics) I was responsible for sales in Benelux and UK/I.
When I am not working I love to spend time with my family, workout in the gym, cook and travel the world (when Covid permits).
What's your role at TimeEdit?
Robert: My role at TimeEdit is Business Development Manager Benelux & UK/I. In my role I will explore opportunities and introduce TimeEdit’s products and services to the Higher Education institutes in these markets. The Benelux and UK/I may be relatively new markets for TimeEdit, but with an amazing product and a (maybe even more amazing) team of colleagues I have no doubt that we have a great time ahead of us!
You have been with the team for a week now, what's your first impression?
Robert: It’s funny how familiar it feels. I have indeed been with TimeEdit for only a week, but it feels as if I have been with the company for at least a month. Everyone I have met is really nice and helpful, and that may be the exact reason why it’s so easy to fit in. Getting to know the product is a bit more challenging. I never knew scheduling services and resource management were this extensive! There’s a lot more to learn still, but with this team that should not be a problem.
We are excited to have you on board, Robert!
