Marnix (43) is the current director of HPV CHandeliers. In 1995, he started his career in this company and in 2012, he officially took over the role as director from his father in law. At the very beginning, he worked only on Saturdays in the crystal workplace. After graduating from MMO-BD on the College of Economics in Zaandam, he started to work full-time at HPV Chandeliers.
Without doubt, Ton is the one with the most experience and knowledge. He has worked at HPV from the very beginning, in 1972. Two years later, he became the director, and that was his title until 2006. Now, at the age of 67, working at HPV still makes him happy and you can easily tell he’s enjoying his job.
As this is still a family company, we needed a cousin as well. Sjoerd is 23 years old and works both in the workplace and on location throughout the Netherlands. In 2015, he started working at HPV Chandeliers. He studies to be a Geography Teacher in Amsterdam.
Someone that can do basically anything in the company, is Yenthle (24). Like Marnix, she started working in the crystal workplace in 2012, but these days, she’s also responsible for the sales and the management of the website. She mainly works on weekends, because she studies Interior Design at Thomas More in Mechelen, Belgium.
Our youngest employee is Youk, he’s 16 years old. Just like Sjoerd, Youk works at the crystal workplace, as well as everywhere in the Netherlands to install chandeliers for our clients. He started his career at HPV Chandeliers in 2015 because he was doing an internship here. He studies for mechatronics in Amsterdam.
Dieuwer is on the background, but that doesn’t mean she’s not important! She doesn’t work in the workplace or on location, but she’s responsible for the administration, and also helps customers in the showroom. She is Ton’s wife and is 65 years old.
