Erik Bax, former CEO CRH Europe – CRH

I have worked with Kees-Jan for more than ten years in merger and acquisition projects.

Working with him was always a pleasure because he is well prepared, in control and creative in finding solutions. His strength is to bond with people in uncertain circumstances, which is often the case in acquisition processes. He is analytically strong and is well able to develop and articulate a strategy. With financial models he supports the decision making process. Together we did many good deals in several countries. He knows the real Work starts after the deal is done and the promised value has to be realised. And maybe most important Kees Jan has good humour, is open minded and easy to work with which made long working days feeling like having fun with a friend
