In spite of his young age Ruud has been active at Oostappen Holiday Parks for years now. He has been involved in every facet of the recreation business. Wherever there was a problem to solve, Ruud was always ready to take action and to do whatever was necessary. The only way to really learn the business is in practice, and this is why he decided to say goodbye to school at a fairly young age.
With all his experience Ruud is now deployed as an (interim) park manager whenever there is a need for extra assistance at the parks, or if there is a temporary gap in management succession. In the near future Ruud will fulfil a role at the head office, but he will remain available to respond to any needs at the parks.
