Arnold van Aken
Director Research & Development
DMS’s technical brains. Raised in an innovative entrepreneurial family, and above all, a hands-on go-getter. Developed, built, commissioned and delivered multiple machines and projects; often challenging, always successful. Actually boats aren’t his thing, but he is the co-owner of DMS Holland.
Director Sales & Marketing
Passionate about yachting and never short of words. He brings customers, colleagues and neighbours into the world of stabilisers with infectious enthusiasm. His ultimate goal is to circumnavigate the world with his wife. On the condition that the yacht is equipped with stabilisers, otherwise his wife won’t go with him.
From beer to coffee, caravans to office furnishings, and finally ending up in stabilisers. It might have been a long journey but in the end, it is only about one thing for Ruud; if the customer is happy, so is he.
Rens van Hal
Area sales manager Benelux
A recent, permanent fixture of the DMS team. Previously employed by the military as an omniscient helicopter technician. Later moved on to DMS to use all his experience, talent, knowledge and skills for the perfect stabilisation of yachts. And with that, comfort on board too. Also honest and ingenious.
Lonne van den Kieboom
Meticulous, friendly and with technical insight, she doesn’t shy away from a sea trial or installation. Previously a Maritime Officer in the commercial marine sector, she brings on-water experience.
Administration, invoices, accounting; Ankie is DMS Holland’s numbers whizz kid. A financial hawk eye, pro in Excel and true to her word. With her well-balanced stability, she’s been the foundation of all things money since 2015.
Mechanical Engineer Research & Development
Happiest when creating. Experienced in FEM, CFD and analytical calculations. Also has a preference for the Scandinavian countries.
Overflowing with enthusiasm for everything. Is quickly interested in new ideas, opportunities, technologies, people and markets. Perfectly suited to his role as Business Developer. Alongside making professional plans, Jaap also likes to make recreational plans.
Wim van Ieperen
Getting the most out of product performance and operational optimisation. Concepts that drive Wim. The experience of a flawlessly working product which offers value for money: that is central.
Supply Chain & Assembly
30 years of experience at home and abroad. And yet different and challenging every time. Ultimately, the supply chain revolves around people and their trust in each other. Involved in DMS since 2020. And as a water sports enthusiast, that feels good in heart and soul.
Koen van Dijk
Started refurbishing boats at secondary school. He discovered his passion for technology and started working for DMS Holland immediately after finishing school. Likes to throw himself in at the deep end, but he does it well.
Julian van den Berg
‘Truth is in the eye of the beholder’. But ultimately, there is only one truth. We do not tell our customers fabrications, but what is based on experience, knowledge and the technical facts. Of course, presented in an attractive way.
