At Transferz, we’re dedicated to excellence in everything we do. We believe that providing a top-quality ground transportation service in every aspect is essential. In line with this vision, we are thrilled to announce the appointment of Tjerk van der Lande as our Chief Quality Officer (CQO). 

Tjerk brings a wealth of experience and a strong track record. His expertise in quality management, innovation and operational excellence during past roles at TomTom, Navads (CIO), Uberall (CoS), Dealroom (COO), and Mach49 (Venture Partner) makes him the perfect fit for this role. He will define a higher level of quality standards and streamlined processes, ensuring that every touchpoint in our value chain delivers the results needed for our drivers, travellers and partners.  

While the role of CQO is not commonly found in scale-ups, we at Transferz recognize the critical importance of having a dedicated leader to guarantee and further develop the quality of our offerings. Tjerk’s appointment underscores our dedication to maintaining and enhancing the service level standards that our partners, transfer companies and travelers have come to expect from us. 

This strategic move aligns with Transferz’s vision on the market, as recently shared by founder/CEO Johan van Vulpen in his recent post on LinkedIn where he emphasizes that in a competitive and dynamic market, quality of delivered services and sustainable growth are key differentiators. “By appointing a CQO, we are doubling down on our commitment to delivering unparalleled quality and reliability, and therefore we are excited to welcome Tjerk to the team. Tjerk’s expertise will be invaluable as we continue to scale and strive for excellence in every area of our business,” said Johan van Vulpen. He continues: “Additionally, over the past years, Tjerk and I have built a high level of mutual trust and understanding whilst working together at Navads from 2016 to 2018. During this period, we turned around the company and achieved operational profitability in a short and intense time. Our proven track record of high-paced collaboration and success bodes well for the future of Transferz.” 

Tjerk’s focus will span across all operational facets of Transferz, from partner integrations and customer interactions to internal processes and technological advancements. His leadership will ensure that quality and innovation are embedded in our company culture and operational DNA.
