Hans has a lot of experience both inside and outside Holland Casino. His strength is that he is close to the people, both our guests and our employees. In addition, I am extremely grateful to Noël for his years of dedication and commitment to Holland Casino.

I have every confidence that Hans will fill the role of Director of Operations very well in his own way and I wish him every success with that.”
