Joep van den Boer, Sales Trainee
Joepstarted working as a trainee a year ago. As a student of Sports, Economics andCommunication he was required to dive into theorganisation and take a helicopter view of how Legro is managed. So he’s notentirely a newcomer. He’s familiar with the organisation and is now, as Legro’slatest new employee, rolling his sleeves up to help Legro realise its(commercial) aims. Straight out of school and eager to introduce Legro to abroader public. We believe that consumers also benefit from good pottingcompost. Joep is therefore joining our consumer team and is going to make moreconsumers happy with Legro potting compost!
