“As I learned more about the company’s successes and its future growth plans in the region, I instantly knew this was where I wanted to continue my career,” Netzer said.
Eijsink added, “Cologne’s proximity to the largest industrial area in Europe, as well as access to a large pool of talent, has supported our decision to expand our footprint to Cologne. We believe being close to our customers is very important, and the combination of our team and our industry-leading technology enables us to do just that.”
This new office is the sixth office opening for CH Robinson in Germany.
