For many of us, the new year is a time of change – new goals, new ideas, new challenges. This applies even more this year to us at TSCNET Services, as we had to bid goodbye to Siem Bruijns, one of our Managing Directors. After three years with our company, Siem goes back to the Dutch-German transmission system operator (TSO) TenneT, one of our shareholders and customers. He seems to be the perfect fit for his new function: Corporate Senior Manager Safety and Security.
“These three years went incredibly fast”, says Siem. “On the one hand, I am looking back with a bit of sadness about having to leave, but above all I am proud of what we have achieved. TSCNET has developed into a unique organisation playing an essential role for the TSOs maintaining the security of supply in Europe. In close cooperation with the TSOs, this role will even gain in importance in the coming years.”
Siem has treasured the close contact to the customers and partners – working hand in hand with colleagues from all over Europe at the heart of power grid security. “But the most special thing about TSCNET is the people: An international team of highly skilled professionals coming from many different nations, highly motivated and with enormous team spirit. That is what I will miss the most.”
Siem’s departure marks the end of a successful chapter for our company – a time of growth and good progress in a lot of areas. However, the next chapter promises to be an exciting and challenging one, too. In the end, it will still be all about operational security. Good to know that we will still have a close working relationship with Siem and all his passion and expertise. Sure thing!
