Our Dutch Team
Discover the faces behind Pietercil Foodservice in the Netherlands.
Born in 1973 in Dordrecht, Danny Koster joined Pietercil Barends BV in 2011 after years of working in the electronics retail industry in various positions. Since 2017, he has been a team member within the Benelux Pietercil Foodservice team as 1 of 2 Key Account Managers Netherlands.
This Dutch Danny (in fact he has another Belgian namesake in the Foodservice team) has now been living for over 20 years together with his girlfriend and their 2 teenage daughters near burgundy Breda, centrally located between Pietercil Group's 3 locations in Ternat (BE), Tessenderloo (BE) and Rotterdam (NL).
In his spare time, Danny can often be found outside, either for a walk or a run through the woods, or for a delicious "slow-cook-session" on the Big Green Egg in the backyard. In winter, too, this is regularly turned on. So Danny can often be found among the pots and pans. Danny also finds it important to be active in the social domain and in club life. He is therefore a member of a local Rotary Club and can often be found at the hockey club MHC De Warande.
Reinier loves food, in all its forms: to talk about it, to make it and, of course, to eat it.
In business terms, this manifests itself in Reinier's efforts to introduce food brands and Private Label into the foodservice market, and then to develop and grow them further among end customers. In his private life, Reinier can be found every month at his cooking club Les Amis de Cuisine.
When Reinier is not eating, he is sailing with friends in his little boat.
Nalinie has been a loyal member of the Foodservice team for years. As a vegetarian with Surinamese roots, she is always open to trying new dishes in world cuisine.
When she is not stirring the cooking pots, she likes to go out for a walk, a nice party or a nice holiday with family or friends. A family visit to Suriname is also on her annual agenda.
Meet Evie, our Foodservice Manager. She manages our Belgian and Dutch team on the one hand and is always on the lookout for trends and new opportunities in the market on the other.
This cheerful positivo sees every day as a new day, full of new possibilities and chances to learn. She thinks in terms of solutions - no challenge is too big for her - she works in a structured way and is happy when deadlines are met. A flexible team player, she is always there for everyone. She never turns down an invitation to have a drink or dinner with friends or colleagues, and she is not the first to go home either. This persevering woman likes to roll up her sleeves, does not like to sit still but can also enjoy a quiet moment with a good book.
Her batteries are recharged in nature, exploring the smallest paths and roads, both in her own region and far beyond.
