Dutch Airport Adviser Consultants (NACO) has a new head: Esther Krumhout.
The First Lady brings more than fifteen years of international experience in the aviation sector to her new role, which she gained at Royal HaskoningDHV. NACO, a subsidiary of the international consulting and engineering company, specializes in helping airports around the world improve their operations and security.
Krumhout has been active in NACO since 2007 and has been involved in various projects in recent years. She worked as Program Manager for Gateway 30 at Aruba Airport Authority. This project focuses on the redevelopment and expansion of Queen Beatrix International Airport in Aruba, which is one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean with more than 2.5 million passengers annually.
Krumhout talks about her new challenge. “I really look forward to leading NACO and working with clients and partners on more data-driven and design operations and future-proof airports.
The NACO management team is also comprised of Jelmer van der Meer (Director of Civil Engineering at the Airport), Tessel Severs (Director of Strategy, Planning and Building Design) and Gerard van der Veer (Director of Airport Building Design).
NACO has its origins in 1949. That year Albert Plaisman, founder and director of KLM, founded NACO. The agency was the most important consulting firm in the development of Schiphol Airport in the 1950s. Since then, the company has supported more than 600 airports in more than 100 countries.
