The story of Wim Vansina

Adding value for clients

My ambition is to become a technical expert in my field, so I can truly provide added value for our clients in managing their soil-related issues. In the execution of projects, I am given a lot of personal responsibility and scope for development. For instance, last year I served as project leader for a challenging, large-scale soil survey of an old industrial site near the city centre of Mechelen. As someone who’s most comfortable working ‘behind the scenes’, I was very surprised and honoured to be recognised as Witteveen+Bos Employee of the Year 2017. But I was even more pleased when the results of the Mechelen soil survey were approved by the Belgian government just two days later, to the great satisfaction of the client.
