Double Reinforcement for the Jalema team
| 30 August, 2018
Jalema, manufacturer of Office Supplies since 1947, is proud to announce that Joris Verweij and Paul Lücker have joined the Jalema team. Joris Verweij starts his position as Key Account Manager Benelux; Paul Lücker will take up the position of New Business Development Manager.
Both Joris and Paul aren’t unfamiliar with the office products sector - Joris (34 years old) has worked for five years at Hamelin BV, after which he continued his career amongst others as an Area Sales Manager at Lyreco Benelux. In his position as Key Account Manager Benelux at Jalema he will be joining Loek van Rhee to begin with (Loek will benefit from his well-earned retirement from May 2019), who is involved in the office market in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Joris sees his new job as a challenge: “The world of office supplies may be declining, but it remains incredibly large and still offers many opportunities for Jalema. Opportunities I don’ t like to miss out on!”
Paul (42 years old) will be focussing on a completely different part of the market - As a New Business Development Manager he will work on the possibilities that (international) online platforms have to offer. Next to that, he will focus on the (export) possibilities that Jalema can still profit from on the international market. Paul begins to work at Jalema with a lot of positive energy: “The office supplies market is also shifting more and more from traditional sales channels to online channels. By focusing on this, Jalema shows that it is ready for the future.” For his new position, Paul can perfectly use the 17 years of experience he’s gained as a European Product Manager and Business Development Manager at Office Depot.
Jalema is delighted with the recruitment of these two gentlemen - The organisation expects to be able to fill in its position as the leading partner in office supplies even better and lay strong foundations for the years to come.
