Dutchman Jos has been heading T&E since 2004, overseeing significant growth in size and impact of the organisation. He previously worked as head of the transport division at CE Delft, a respected environmental policy consultancy in the Netherlands. At CE Delft, he got an early taste of EU policy by helping the Dutch government negotiate, in its EU presidency, the ‘Euro 3-4’ standards for cars. Jos holds a Mechanical Engineering degree from Delft University, but likes economics a lot more.
As well as his native Dutch, Jos speaks English, French and German. Jos puts sustainable transport into practice by regularly making his 2x30km commute by bike - the T&E office shower being the key enabling policy for this to happen. He loves Italy and its food, his wife and three kids, and, of course, greener transport policy!
