NTS expands Executive Board with COO

The NTS-Group has announced the name of its new Chief Operations Officer (COO), who will join the Executive Board from 1 August onwards. Rob Karsmakers has an impressive record of service with Philips. His expertise forms an important addition for expanding the quality of our service and for giving more attention and direction to a constructive cooperation between the various operating companies at NTS.

Our success brings increasing pressure on us to perform consistently at the highest level. This is true for each unit, but also for cooperation between the units. The expansion of the Executive Board with the position of Chief Operations Officer is therefore a logical step in our ambition to continuously keep expanding our performance to our clients.”
