André van Kruijssen will become General Manager of Plantion in Ede, the Netherlands. He will start with his new job on 1 January 2021. Van Kruijssen will succeed Peter Bakker who will leave the auction at the end of the year.
Last week André van Kruijssen announced his departure from Veiling Holambra. Van Kruijssen was General Manager for eight years at Veiling Holambra. He and his wife Karin want to return to their family in the Netherlands.
Before van Kruijssen left for Brazil he was General Manager of merger auction Plantion.
In 2008 Van Kruijssen was one of the founders of the merger auction between Veiling Vleuten and VON in Bemmel. In 2010 he was also one of the founders of the new auction building in Ede.
Van Kruijssen sees Plantion as his child. “With that feeling, I want to help Plantion a little further. It is not just any company for me. When I see the responses I get from customers on my return. That is really nice. I have a nice network and good relationships. That all plays a role in my decision to return to Plantion. ”
