Appointed as IntES General Director in 2020, Ronald de Vries has a rich background in multicultural engineering and project management within various sectors gained over 30+ years in the industry. A very committed and proactive senior leader with many years of experience, Ronald has a very energetic, down to earth, pragmatic leadership style and maintains a strong focus on collaborative team development based on maximising everyone’s individual strengths.
As IntES is a global company, IntES’ General Director is no stranger himself to international experience. Ronald has had a great deal of prior involvement in the internationally-operating multi-disciplinary engineering and consultancy industry, having gained his experiences in various countries like Aruba, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar. Now based in IntES’ office in Eindhoven, Netherlands, Ronald also spends a large proportion of time each year visiting all IntES offices across the different continents, staying very much involved in all international operations and individual projects.
Himself a founding investor and shareholder of IntES, Ronald and the other senior management team investors founded the company together in 2016 out of a deep pride in engineering and the work achieved together as former colleagues working for over a decade for an engineering firm. This drive and belief in creating IntES as a new business, and working as a team in collaboration has helped create the foundation upon which IntES has built its successes and growth so far.
Achieving a university degree in Mechanical Engineering as well as a degree in Heating, Air Conditioning, Ventilation and Refrigeration Maintenance Technology, Ronald then went on to gain valuable experience in Real Estate, Univeristies and Clean Room projects during the first 15 years of his career, and gained experience in the industrial sectors of Chemicals, Food & Beverages, and Manufacturing during the latest 15 years. With managerial experience firmly rooted in engineering project management, as his career has progressed he has gained more and more experience of leadership roles and enjoyed success in positions such as Managing Director and Deputy General Manager in previous employments before embarking on the IntES venture.
