Bas Hakkennes assists companies in improving their supply chains and operations.
He studied Economics at Erasmus University, Rotterdam, followed by an MBA at Rotterdam School of Management. He has been working at EY since 2013, including working as a consultant, primarily in supply chain and business transformation.
“The complexity of supply chains is increasing, as is their international nature. This makes it ever more of a challenge to ensure all links work together smoothly. Clients and colleagues sometimes call me “an adviser with impact.” I like that because it’s my sincere intention to help clients more. Sustainable results are always paramount.”
How Bas is building a better working world
“I like the complexity of these challenges. But also the tangible results that you can achieve together. A more efficient supply chain is worth huge sums, sometimes even tens of millions of Euros, from increased turnover to cost savings. This is a huge motivation for me to get my teeth into our challenges - I won’t stop until we’ve achieved the desired result.”
