Time for a change

If you feel like things have come full circle, you know it is time for a change. I will no longer be director and major shareholder of Sidijk B.V. as of today.

During my time as owner of Sidijk, I have been able to achieve all my personal goals. Developing and selling great and unique products that have gone all around the world, including to the Olympic Games. I have travelled a lot and was introduced to all kinds of different cultures and great people.

We reached a pinnacle in 2018. Sidijk celebrated its 40th anniversary, we broke through the magical number of 100 colleagues, made it to the finals of the ‘Frisian Company of the Year’ awards, and I had been in the industry for 20 years. But working on where we are now for 20 years has cost a lot of valuable family time. This has led me to decide that it is time for a change.

It is now time for me and my family to enjoy each other and our relatives and friends. Even though my professional future is still unwritten, I am sure that it will be bright.

I leave Sidijk in the very reliable hands of Ronald Rotteveel, my current partner. The Sidijk as you know it will go on unabated.

I will fulfil my last period at Sidijk with the same passion and decisiveness, and will continue to follow the developments closely.

Thank you for the pleasant cooperation and trust.

Best regards, Klaas Siderius
