The right time to say goodbye, sometimes it is now
After many years of creating our great agency, Freek Claessens and Hans Erdmann withdraw from Claessens Erdmann's activities with effect from January 1st, 2021. A special duo, who have been working together since the end of their studies in 1984 and who started the Claessens Erdmann agency as you know it since 1995.
Their dedication, personal input, creativity, and never-ending enthusiasm, in combination with clients, suppliers, and colleagues, have resulted in many outstanding projects that can still be found both nationally and internationally. They have turned Claessens Erdmann into an agency that is facing the future with self-confidence.
Of course, we would have liked to pay them the festive farewell they deserve, with all those with whom they have developed a relationship in recent years from their professional life at Claessens Erdmann. Unfortunately, the situation surrounding Covid-19 does not permit this at the moment.
At the beginning of 2019, they handed over the daily management of the office to Hans Preeker, Sander Bos, and Lieke Genten, to ensure a smooth transition. We are pleased that as Associate Partners they will continue to be involved in our office and that we will use their experience and professional advice whenever necessary.
Freek and Hans look forward to taking the time, creativeness and attention to many other things that are close to their hearts.
We wish them all the best and happiness in doing so.
