A Letter from Guus

Dear visitor,

Some of you might know, that I served more than 11 years at the Royal Dutch Marines (1981-1992). From the Royal Naval Academy to operational practice and international experiences. A very impressive base for my personal development and growth and for successful business assignments later in my carreer.

After leaving the Marines, I started my commercial business life at Schick/Wilkinson Sword (1992-1997, Benelux sales), the second largest shaving company in the world. After that I spent 2 years in the convectionary business at Redband Venco/Leaf (Benelux & France sales). From 1999 till 2006, I lead SodaStream (World leader in consumer home carbonation) in the Benelux from scratch to a double-digit Dollar revenue.

From 2006 until mid-2009, I had 3,5 very exciting years at BRITA GmbH. It took me from their home-market Germany (and Austria), via a very challenging time in the West, setting up/building MAVEA in North America, to exploring business opportunities in the East, in India.

After BRITA/Mavea I returned to my own consultancy/interim agency Doorman Management BV, from where I experienced also very interesting assignments. From a challenging joint attempt to take over Inventum Holland BV (small domestic appliances, 2009-2010) -which we decided to abate-, to leading a very exciting test-project in Germany and the Netherlands (2010-2011) for Bevyz Global Ltd (hot/cold capsule dispensing), to Management-support activities back again at BRITA in 2012 for BRITA Ionox/Vivreau (water dispenser systems) in Obertraubling Bavaria and also running the Private Label Department at BRITA Wasser-Filter-Systeme AG in Neudorf Switzerland.

From late 2012 until late 2016 my team and I were responsible for BRITA’s Distributor Markets (40+) worldwide, which made me travel all over the world (Asia, South Africa, Middle East, Eastern Europe and more).

From September 2016, I was leading Special Projects for Qualicaps, a hard two-piece capsules and capsule equipment manufacturer, owned by Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation (MCHC), a KAITEKI Company. This intensive turnaround Project in North America (Qualicaps Inc. NC) ended Q2 of 2018.

From summer 2018 onwards, I was supporting the Management Team of B&T (Van Beekveld en Terpstra, organisatieadviesbureau) in Amsterdam. At the moment I am very close on starting a challenging new assignment in the CBD-oil business, with subsidiaries in Suriname, Canada, Germany and the Netherlands. From that moment on I will  not be available for new challenges.

I am looking forward hearing from you or maybe even better WORKING with you, wherever in the world.

Until we talk or meet, you can always reach me via this website.

All the best, with kind regards

Guus Doorman
