Inge Schalke new coordinator Netherlands

Inge Schalke will be the new Netherlands coordinator from 1 February 2023. Her name will ring a bell with some members, as Inge has been working for MPS Service & Support for the past two years.

Having grown up as a true grower’s daughter, ornamental horticulture is in Inge’s blood. It is therefore not surprising that she worked in various commercial positions at Royal FloraHolland for almost 13 years. Here, she even won the ‘most customer-friendly and collegial colleague’ award in 2009. After two years of Service & Support, Inge thought it was time for a new step in her career and made the switch to Coordinator Netherlands. So from now on, you can also bump into her at trade fairs and meetings, where you can ask all your questions or just have a chat.

“I’m really looking forward to it, working outside of the office, visiting the growers a lot and in this way spreading the word even more about what the added value of the MPS Group can be for them,” says Inge.
