“I always like to get to know my colleagues better, so every now and then I sit down with one of them and ask some questions. So, let’s meet Jeroen!” – Eva
Hello, everyone! My name is Jeroen Arts, and I’m a Functional Consultant at Anchormen in our Groningen office. I’ve been working for Anchormen for more than 14 years; I think I’m actually the first employee that joined the team.
My experience here gives me a unique perspective in the development of Anchormen because I’ve been part of all the different phases that the company has been through. We started as a Web Developer, making websites and web-based applications for our clients. At that time, I was what we call in the Netherlands a “Manusje-van-alles” (jack-of-all-trades) doing everything from sales to coding. After we started growing (and changed focus to data) I transitioned from programming to the more strategic position of consulting and managing projects. My focus since then has been to work closely with our clients and build applications or platforms that can solve their workflow problems.
What I like the most about working at Anchormen is that I never stopped developing. Since I started, my role evolved together with the company. What is more, although we grew a lot, our main values never changed and we’ve always worked with the goal of bringing genuine business benefit to our clients.
Most of my free time I’ve dedicated to my family. I’m happily married for five years now and have two beautiful daughters. If I’m not with my family you can find me riding my motorcycle through the countryside, playing video games or watching sports and Netflix at home.
