Fred Boere end Arno Rodenburg continue as co-CEO’s of the Gpi Group

Fred Boere and Arno Rodenburg will lead the Gpi Group as co-CEOs. The co-CEO position enables them to lead a fast growing team with multiple offices in an efficient and pragmatic way.

Fred Boere: ‘For twenty years, we have been working together on this great company, each of us with our own knowledge and strengths. We have been able to realize a lot of beautiful and different projects as partners of many of the largest companies in the world.’

Due to growth within the company, the corporate structure was renewed in 2020. The different companies, each with their own specialty, became separate under the Gpi Group with each a managing director for the day-to-day management. General management, innovation and support is managed by the Gpi Group.

The decision for this dual leadership structure is rooted in the long cooperation between Fred (CEO) and Arno (former COO), a great mutual trust and the complementary skills and personalities. ‘The co-CEO position enables us to bring this combined experience and mindset to the various teams within the group on a daily basis. We are very pleased to continue building on this vision and future of Gpi,’ says Arno Rodenburg. Within the direction, Fred Boere will continue to focus on finance and IT and Arno Rodenburg will continue to lead the operations.
