On May the 8th KIVI Students Twente will again host a CEO-lecture which will this time be in collaboration with S.V. Stress. The goal of these lectures is to stimulate and enthuse students and young engineers. CEO’s from important companies, with an engineering degree themselves, will talk about their experiences, their career path and how they became a successful CEO.


This time Ed van de Weerd, managing director at Kruidvat, will provide the lecture. Ed van de Weerd obtained his Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering and Management from the University of Twente in 1993. After several functions he became Managing Director at Kruidvat.


How Ed van de Weerd achieved to become a successful CEO and what he sees as goals for his company and himself in the future, will be central during the lecture. Want to know more? Hear it from Ed van de Weerd himself on the 8th of May!
