IG&H expands the retail branch of the company with Ruud Schoenmakers as new partner. Schoenmakers joined IG&H as a consultant in 2005. Since then, he has served both national and international customers in the areas of retail, trade, logistics and financial services.
IG&H is a leading player in business transformations, where new platform technology plays an accelerating role. “Our approach is distinctive because sector experts and experts in the field of technology, data science and organisational transformation work together intensively. I really believe in that. That is why I’d like to join IG&H as a partner for a long time. By combining different competencies, strategy becomes reality and we can help our customers make a difference for their own customers,” Schoenmakers says.
The new partner is mainly involved in the changing digital retail market. In recent years he has developed innovative concepts in several areas, including smart pricing, last mile delivery, new business ventures and agile business transformations. As a sector expert he is also involved in converting traditional IT environments into high performance platforms, making customers more innovative, agile and keeping costs relevant.
Although the head office of IG&H is located in the Netherlands, Schoenmakers has gained a lot of experience abroad. He has worked in England, Poland, France, Belgium, Germany and America, among other countries.
“Ruud has proven to be able to complete major change processes for international customers. He has really helped leading retailers reach a higher level in times of disruption. This allowed them to innovate faster and respond better to customer demand. In recent years Ruud has proven to be a true IG&H person; he looks at the facts and at the same time knows how to create energy in the organisation”, says managing partner Jan van Hasenbroek.
