I am a registered Republican – after my kin – John and Jessie Fremont. I will write Trump and inform him about the Royal Stud Book. He might want to buy a horsy or two.
Is Cees Roozemont into human genealogies, too? Does his daughter know this? Is she bored of her father’s interest, and thus, may not want us to get know each other?
Cees Roozemond new chairman KNHS
Posted on March 19, 2018
Cees Roozemond was appointed as the new chairman of the KNHS at the Members’ Council meeting on 19 March 2018. He succeeds Theo Ploegmakers, who fulfilled this role for nine years. We would like to briefly introduce Cees Roozemond to you:
Cees Roozemond (1959) was chairman of the royal association “Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek” (KFPS) from 2005 to 2014. He was also a member of the Board of the Sector Council Horses from 2008 to 2010. In his hometown Bergen NH he was, until recently, owner of Stal Groeneweg. In addition, Cees fulfills numerous other activities: chairman Stichting het Paard van Friesland, chairman of the board of directors of SC Heerenveen, chairman of the supervisory board of Thialf and advisor Logistics Beequip. Cees is married and is the father of three adult children.
The Confidential Advisory Committee of the Council of Members argued the choice for Cees as follows:
“Mr. Roozemond is a very experienced director and has a large international network. He is well able to connect, is a team player and knows how to present himself well. Because of his management experience at the KFPS, among other things, he has more than enough experience to be a chairman who dares to innovate and is expected to have sufficient experience to guide and support the developments of the KNHS. He has a clear vision. The long-term policy plan ‘Changing hand’ will be able to provide Cees with excellent guidance and support. ”
Cees reacts positively to his appointment:
“I’m ready and I’m really looking forward to it. I am confident that we will work together on a beautiful equestrian future with respect for each other and with the look ahead. ”

Startup BEEQUIP finances used equipment for SME’s
Press Release –
Newly founded equipment leasing company BEEQUIP focuses on the financing of handling equipment for small and medium enterprises in the sectors infra, earthmoving, construction and logistics. The startup differentiates itself by offering speed and flexibility and a focus on the value of equipment. BEEQUIP looks further than company figures and cash flows. The founders are Joris Linders, Peter Loef and Giel Claes in cooperation with NIBC. The financial services provider from The Hague has committed herself strategically.
The Dutch market for financing company assets is concentrated. The Dutch Association of Leasing Companies indicates that EUR 5.2 billion of equipment was financed by this limited number of parties in 2015. That represents 12% of all investments in equipment in 2015. So, there is room for a new entrepreneurial player in the market.
Joris Linders, co-founder of BEEQUIP: “Our team has a clear motivation for the startup: to provide the small and medium enterprises, as the driving force behind the Dutch economy, with the funding for equipment to fuel growth again. Our team has a wealth of experience in both the financial and the equipment world. This experience, in combination with our entrepreneurial spirit, speed and clarity, will be applied to let Dutch SME’s grow again. An entrepreneur wants to know the same week if he or she can purchase his equipment, even if his figures are not accepted by the traditional market parties.”
BEEQUIP can offer that speed by its focus on the value of equipment based on a strong network in the equipment world. This means that company figures are of lesser importance. This focus has already allowed BEEQUIP to execute equipment leasing transactions on the basis of used equipment. Many Dutch family businesses own equipment that has a higher market value than its book value. This is to thank the high quality of equipment brands and thorough maintenance. BEEQUIP converts this potential into liquid assets which support organic or even non-organic growth. Investments in IT and the team are further adding to
necessary speed and flexibility. The BEEQUIP team already consists of 14 employees in the Rotterdam office overlooking the river Maas.
