EBF Leadership Panel: Tjeerd Jegen (CEO HEMA)
“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”
During the next leadership panel, the CEO of HEMA will share his thoughts and ideas on the topic of leadership. Tjeerd Jegen started his career in 1995
as Trainee at Ahold. In the following years he fulfilled different CEO positions
for companies such as Tesco Malaysia and Woolsworth Australia. In April 2015
Tjeerd Jegen came back to the Netherlands and has been appointed as the new
CEO of HEMA.
In the last few years Tjeerd Jegen implemented several fundamental changes,
which resulted in the ‘revival’ of HEMA. In this leadership panel he will tell you
everything about his experiences as CEO and the problems he encountered.

Key-note speakers are invited to talk about their view on leadership. Furthermore, during the lecture the speakers talk about their life, work or current occurrences in the world.
