Family business Axell Group – Henriëtte Timmermans
Entrepreneurship is overcoming challanges
“Over the years we have indeed experienced just about everything”, says Henriëtte Timmermans. The greatest trial in the history of the family business, however, is undoubtedly the death in 2004 of the then director/owner Jan Timmermans. As a result, the leadership suddenly fell into the hands of his wife Henriëtte. “Luckily I had been involved with the company for many years, so I pretty much knew how it went. Through hard work, creativity, flexibility, trust and support, we have weathered all these storms – and more.”
Core values say who you are and what you stand for
“Most family businesses, like us, are strongly committed to core values and I understand that very well. We ourselves communicate our core values – human, transparent, decisive, problem-solving and enterprising – very clearly, so that it is immediately abvious to business partners and employees what they can expect from us. I also think that our core values fit our organization very well: we like to start a conversation, are open to suggestions, do what we promise and take good care of our employees. As a flat organization we can also switch quickly and take decisive decisions. And we have proven over the past 90 years that we are enterprising.”
