Dear business partners,
After 37 years at the helm, Peter Bakker is leaving Gemini Teak Decks. In this newsletter, the founder of our company sheds light on his decision to move on and we introduce you to the new Board of Gemini Teak Decks, which has the same structure and will stay on the same course. With quality, innovation, exclusivity and flexibility as our main compass and our customers as our absolute beacon.
Flying under the same flag
Peter Bakker recently handed over the helm to the new board officially, with the aid of the famous Dutch cheeseboard to symbolise what Gemini Teak Decks embodies: Dutch level-headedness, worldwide reach, familiar with every ship’s flag. “The flags symbolize the pride and joy that I feel, knowing I can hand over the company to colleagues who have helped me build it over the years,” said Peter Bakker. “This will ensure continuity in the structure of our company, in quality, and in the way we work. The new board shares this operating philosophy, and they complement each other perfectly. I couldn’t have found a better time to hand over the baton.”
Business Process Innovation
Peter Bakker can look back with satisfaction. He especially values the collaborative relationships with customers and partners. “I therefore want to thank all our business partners for working with us, for their commitment and trust,” he emphasises. Stepping down as director does not mean Peter Bakker is going to rest on his laurels. “I want to focus on being an advisor and sparring partner when it comes to innovation in business processes. Not only for Gemini, but also for other organisations – preferably in manufacturing,” says Peter Bakker, who looks forward to meeting up with familiar faces in his new role. “If you want to know more about my future plans or would like to catch up, I am always available by phone or email.”
