Maarten de Groof has been of great value for Schiphol. He shared his enthusiasm and knowledge and that has been very good for the airport. He contributed to both our propositions to travelers and relationships with airlines. Schiphol thus created an attractive, recognisable and always interesting offer for all customers and partners. Maarten has also been a fine colleague who will be missed.
