Kristel Landa has been appointed Managing Director of Relined Fiber Network. Landa takes over from Jan Willem Tom at the helm of the organisation he is leaving after more than 16 years. As a member of Relined’s management board, Landa will further determine the course to be taken by Relined and set out the strategy towards the organisation.
Kristel Landa started her career with T-Mobile, where she was responsible for managing relations with all the big landlords. From here, Landa made the switch to NOVEC, a business specialising in the operation of telecommunication masts. There, she started out managing the Sales department. Following the acquisition of Duvekot Rentmeesters, she was made Managing Director of that organisation. Under Landa’s supervision, Duvekot became a modern, medium-sized, nationally operating agency with a range of disciplines. Now, she will be committing all of her knowledge and experience to managing Relined.
On the basis of her cooperation with former Managing Director Jan Willem Tom, Landa has been able over recent years to watch Relined’s growth and development from the side-lines. What struck her most was the parallel between the two organisations.
“The ambition and intrinsic desire of both teams to develop further. This field of play is closer to where I started out, and I see at least as many opportunities and possibilities here we can get to grips with, together with a passionate team”, says Kristel Landa.
Landa will make up the management team of Relined with Financial Director Pieter Heestermans. Together they will work to make Relined’s future ambitions reality. Relined is an organisation that has been active on the market for almost 17 years now. From a small, national Dark Fiber organisation Relined has become a player with an international reputation and a network stretching across the Netherlands and Germany.
“The aspects I will focus on first are further expansion of the network by means of cooperations and partners and the international ambitions, as well as putting the finishing touches to the team. I believe that I can make a contribution to this from my own nature – which is to cooperate, play to one another’s strengths and look for connection and commitment. This means I will be starting work at Relined with a great deal of enthusiasm.” – Kristel Landa, Managing Director Relined Fiber Network
