My name is Daniël Bies. As a born Frisian I grew up in Marum and live in the city of Groningen, together with my Drenthe wife and our 3 children. So I have a lot of affinity with the 3 Northern provinces. I also inherited the entrepreneurial blood. As the child of an entrepreneur, I have experienced the growth of a company and all the challenges that come with it from close by and learned a lot from it.
After studying Business Administration at the Hanzehogeschool in Groningen, I owned my own company active in the manufacturing industry, among other things. After selling the company, I was active between 2009 and 2021 as a business consultant and on an interim basis at companies in various sectors, including in the "smart" and "sustainable" sectors. I can put my experiences gained therein to good use in my role at NOM, where I started as Business Developer on November 1, 2021.
In my free time I am mostly involved with sports and sporting children. I played soccer for years but in recent years I have been mostly active on my bike, both on the road and in the woods. But I also still give soccer training at my oldest son's club and stand along the line with the other children.
From my role at NOM I hope to be able to contribute my bit to business and the economy in the North of the Netherlands and I would like to think along with you about your opportunities and challenges. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
