“I am happy, proud and fulfilled that Arjen and Egbert are now joining as shareholders after three years as directors. For me this is a natural and logical process. I made a conscious choice to take this company, its employees and its clients further into the future in this way. Arjen and Egbert know the company through and through; they have been working there for twenty and seventeen years respectively. I myself will remain involved in the company as advisor and shareholder,” said Stephan van Gelder, co-founder and former director of Integron.
Arjen Maliepaard and Egbert Engelfriet also welcome the move. “It makes us even more ‘Integronners’ than we already were. It also brings new responsibilities that we will gladly bear. All with the goal of continuing to develop as a company, along with our employees, from the vision and passion of always getting the best out of customers and employees. Our mission is to ensure that clients become top performers and succeed in being sustainably successful organizations.

Van Gelder went from director to 100% DGA four years ago. He is currently dedicated to his own company, The Inner Journey Guide, supporting and advising entrepreneurs on “conscious entrepreneurship.
