Willem van der Jagt

CEO, Mines Services Suriname N.V.

As a maritime officer, I started working on Icebreaking-, offshore and dredging vessels in Europe, Africa, Central America and the Caribbean. After returning to Suriname with my family, I managed a stevedoring company in Suriname for a couple of years, before I started Mines Services Suriname in 2003, first as general manager and later as owner. As a innovator who continuously strives for growth the growing with the mining industry since early 2000’s allowed me to grow the company from the small office downtown to a significant industry partner. Since 2007 Mines Services Suriname N.V has profiles itself as a key supplier to the top ten industries. We are now expanding our company for the third time in 10 years’ time and the last one with me at realm.  Time for the next generation to get ready!
