• Our people with European jobs

Robert Kroon

Program director Robert works within Arcadis Performance Excellence, a top strategic program for Arcadis worldwide: “Leading the program in the Netherlands requires me to draw on my experience, and apply my creative, analytic and pragmatic skills. Together with my colleagues across Europe, we developed a highly efficient way of working which will help us meet client demands and leverage our global footprint. Our clients, employees and stakeholders will benefit from this work in the future.” 

“We all learn, share and push each other to grow.”

What do you love about working for Arcadis?

“I love working in a top five worldwide company in a field that really matters for the world. I also enjoy that I have the opportunity to design my own career and am supported in achieving my personal goals.” 

My favorite projects

  1. 1. New highway/railway overpass
  2. “In this three-year project, I felt I learned the trade, from a technical, process, finance, environmental point of view. Even now, I am benefiting from my experience when I talk to our people, because I can easily relate to the problems they are facing on a day to day basis.”  

  3. 2. Design of a new highway tunnel
  4. “For this €600m+ project, three design phases had to be conducted in parallel to meet the client’s deadline. This was combined with a risk-based approach to reduce design costs.”

  5. 3. Light transport unit
  6. “I was asked to establish a new business unit for streetcar and subway work. I started with just four specialists, and it developed in to a mature unit of 25 people.”
