In the picture: Jonathan Mars, project manager

Jonathan Mars’ career at Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology began in 2013 with an internship during his applied university studies in electrical engineering. After graduating, Jonathan was hired as project engineer within the Power Solutions department. From 1 January 2016, he will become the project manager responsible for project-related as well as financial and technical aspects of Power Solutions projects. He will keep in touch with customers while ensuring that the components of the relevant system match each other in terms of technology.

In addition, he will be responsible for all power calculations necessary to determine the dimensions of the high-voltage components required within the system.

Jonathan loves the challenging nature of his work at Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology. “We never work with series projects within our department – each project is unique. This requires us to continually answer new technical questions and solve new issues. We also fulfil a kind of advisory role for our customers, sparring together as a team to achieve the best product. It is great to work with a compact team and watch them grow project after project.” 

A recent Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology assignment in Gisenyi, Rwanda, made a great impression on Jonathan. “This was the first large project in which I was involved from the early stages to completion. I was on location myself to start, deliver and complete the job.”

Jonathan describes Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology as flexible and serious, and feels that these qualities are the best explanation for the company’s success. “Customers often compliment us on the way we do business. The flexibility of all employees, from technicians to engineers and managers, is clearly very attractive. And we are serious: we don’t talk too much, preferring to get down to business. If there is a problem, we first find a solution that best suits the customer. And we’re all very committed to the company. Whether this is due to the renowned community feeling on Urk or the way we were raised I don’t know – but it certainly works well for everyone.”
