Willem approaches projects as an allround contract and tender manager with a helicopter view as well as with an eye for detail. He has a strong vision for efficient preparation, tendering and construction. His focus starts already with the design strategy, after which the preparation, tender and realisation will follow. In this way, Willem optimises systems and processes, so the contract management will be a smoothly running project.

Experienced team player Willem is an experienced team player in offshore tenders and in contract management. He knows processes of projects within the industrial and maritime construction sectors inside and out and he translates the present risks into measurements, which deliver the quality the client expects. He is experienced in directing on commercial targets and designing processes for a competitive procurement and tendering. In the realisation, Willem is proficient in treating subcontractor claims, he determines the processes which are the best and he works on structures for the back office of the contract control.

Willem has worked on several special projects for Shell, like the construction of the ”Prelude” which is the floating FLNG factory.
