|Arne-Christian van der Tang
SVP Human Resources
I was an HR school drop out in the early nineties and very deliberately chose a career in commercial and operational management roles through which I arrived at a Texan freight forwarding organization. The years of line management gave me a different perspective on HR and organizational effectiveness, aligning HR to company and end-user objectives in a pragmatic manner. Years later I was HR director for EMEA for the same company, and stayed true to my can-do and no-nonsense approach to organizational challenges.
After 11 years with this company, now CEVA logistics, I moved to TomTom. Realizing that my entire career was with one company, I agreed to a much lower position as HR manager for their customer care unit. When a year on the job, I was promoted to be a member of the consumer management board. I’ve been heading the global HR team since early 2014 and we have embarked on a change path with a clear strategy, relentless ambition and pragmatism.
