MEET THE MT

CEO Bart Hoefakker

‘More eye for the longer term’

Matthias Haag has left as CEO of Gemini; he has found a new challenge near his home town of Edinburgh. Matthias has been succeeded by Bart Hoefakker, who has worked for Gemini for several years and was responsible for Operations & Maintenance as an MT member (see the interview in this newsletter about the ins and outs of the wind park). The daily management of Gemini is now in the hands of Bart and CFO Arend Drenthe.

Bart on his new job: “I wanted more and broader responsibilities. Gemini’s board of shareholders has given me these and that is an important message; for me but also for the entire Gemini team. That trust is very important.” The redistribution of work has taken shape within the existing Gemini organisation, says Bart: “I will be more concerned with the tactical, managerial and strategic operation of the company. With more contact with shareholders and financiers, for example. And with even more of an eye for the longer term - without losing sight of the daily performance of the park. The new dimensions of the work really appeal to me. Then it is good to take some more distance here and there. I have been able to transfer a number of my tasks and responsibilities to my colleagues who have therefore also been able to further their career. And that's a great development.”

The Gemini organisation regrets the departure of Matthias Haag, but is very grateful to him for the essential role he has played in the development and construction of the wind park. Bart: “With his enthusiasm and extensive expertise, Matthias was the main driver of the project. Partly due to his dedication, this special project has been realised, on time, safely, within budget and without major setbacks. The people always came first for him; I have great admiration for that. We are sorry that he left but we wish him every success in the continuation of his career!”
