The year 2020 will go down in the history of Aspectra B.V. (formerly Alphatron Broadcast Electronics B.V.) as the year of major changes. As a direct result of COVID-19 and new insights in a world of social distancing and working remotely, it is the right time for Aspectra to grow.
In the early stage of the pandemic, shareholders came together to analyse the situation and discuss various scenarios. Despite the healthy financial situation, not knowing what COVID-19 would mean, action was taken almost immediately. The goal to further develop the already strong foundation of the organization and to prepare it for the world after COVID-19. The addition of Hans into the management team - consisting of both shareholders René van der Reiden and Thomas Raadgeep - is in line and a logical consequence of the course that has been set.
“I see enormous potential and would like to focus on the areas where I can make a difference for Aspectra. With a good feeling and conviction, I hand over the baton of Managing Director to Hans. With great pleasure and energy, I make the switch to International Sales Director within Aspectra B.V. A role that fits well with the experience I have gained in this company and market over the past 20 years” - says René van der Reiden.
