Gert Vanderheyden

  • Job title: Warehouse Support Supervisor (Carglass Distribution)
  • Country: Benelux
  • Length of service: 24 years

Gert has worked in the fast-paced Distribution Warehouse since 1994, experiencing its growth from 1,500m² to 42,000m².

In a challenging year, with the build of our new state of the art warehouse in Bilzen, Gert has been resilient and worked extremely well under pressure. From the design of the first technical plans - including electricity, smoke detection, sprinklers, HVAC, sewage, alarm system, building management system, and so on - to the decommissioning of the old warehouses, Gert has been closely involved in the selection of suppliers, and has made the comfort and safety of workers his top priority. Gert’s training crew has enlisted and trained over 100 new FTEs, and his maintenance team was the first point of contact for all the sub-contractors. And since the start of the build, Gert has been on-call and on-site every weekend, never complaining, only striving for the best result.

Gert continuously motivates and develops his team to achieve their challenging targets. He leads by example and encourages a strong team-oriented work ethic whilst promoting a fun, fair and rewarding work environment. Passionate with very high standards and an amazing level of commitment, his co-workers describe him as energising, encouraging and always in a good mood!
