CEO Erik Oostwegel: “From Schiphol airport you can easily access our head office in Amersfoort by car or public transport. That is why we organise all larger meetings at our head office. In addition, the wooded area offers many possibilities and there are also many good hotels in the city.”

"Our goal is to create happy cities. Smart and healthy are essential parts of this. We contribute to this with our Healthy Citizens Platform, with which we help municipalities make decisions to offer residents a healthy living environment. We cleverly bring together matters that are important to the health of people, such as odor, noise, temperature and air quality. This way we can quickly come to a baseline measurement: how is this city or street doing? We make a bottleneck analysis and come up with measures. After that we look at the impact of these measures.”
