Our Management Team

The leading team behind our excellent logistics.
 
Good logistics is about knowing all possible options. Excellent logistics is about delivering the best solution for the job at hand. Our management team members are all driven by this vision.

Ger Engelsman - CEO
Ger has been passionate about transport and logistics ever since he started working with KLM Cargo in 1986. Senior management jobs within KLM, Exel Freight Management and DHL Global Freight led him to be the participating executive of CleanLeaseFortex, the number one textile services supplier for healthcare and hospitality customers in the Benelux.
 
After selling this company Ger turned back to the logistics industry andbecame CEO of Lubbers Logistics Group in 2013. Under his leadership we have grown into the leading partner for all kinds of industries, requiring complex transport and logistics solutions. He believes that the current position of Lubbers is a good example of strong teamwork.
 
When Ger is not busy with developing Lubbers, he enjoys history, culinary adventures and an occasional rock concert.
 
Erik Mulder - CFO
Erik holds a master’s degree in fiscal law and earned his stripes with management positions in both finance and logistics. He started his working career as a state tax-accountant and advisor at the National Tax Office (Belastingdienst) and later on at KPMG Meijenburg and HLB Nannen.
 
Erik then was national news within the football scene, because he became the youngest Treasurer at a professional football club (FC Groningen) in history of Dutch professional football. Under his financial leadership FC Groningen grew to become a top club within Dutch football. For example, Erik played a leading role in the planning, development and realization off the new football stadium "Euroborg”. In 2016 he became a member of the Supervisory Board of the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB). Erik is our Chief Financial Officer since 2012.
 
Besides visiting and watching professional football matches, Erik’s biggest hobby and finest moment of the day is smoking a nice and good quality sigar.
 
Edwin Zwart - COO
We don’t think there are people more seasoned in transport and logistics in the oil & gas industry than Edwin. He has worked in managing positions for leading companies in various countries and regions around the globe.
 
In 2018 he decided to bring all his international experience to Lubbers when he became our Chief Operating Officer. Edwin likes hiking, sailing and visiting remote areas. He enjoys developing people and his work, as long as the hard work is combined with a good joke and laughter now and then!
 
What also brings him joy is watching his daughters playing basketball and he likes to kick a ball every now and then with his fellow team mates, before drinking a beer.
 
Stuart Ferguson - Group Director UK & QHSE
Stuart started his working career with an engineering apprenticeship at Dunlop, where he stayed for a few years. His engineering experience then led him to Denmark where he started working for DFDS, one of Europe’s leading Ferry Operators. At DFDS Stuart held several operational positions.
 
On his return to the UK he began working for German company Freudenberg, a global automotive manufacturer. At Freudenberg Stuart worked his way up to become a Production Manager being responsible for 150 men and a turnover of £30 million. After twelve years Stuart joined another multinational, Schmitz Cargobull, a world leader in trailer manufacturing. This was a more demanding role, as he was responsible for 350 men and a £50 million turnover. In 2003 a change in direction saw Stuart join the Lubbers organization, where he is now Group Director UK and Group Director QHSE.
 
Stuart loves sports; he is a keen cyclist, likes to play golf and is a fanatical long distance walker. Through his walks he raised many thousands for charity. He likes spending his weekends at his holiday home walking the family Great Dane or supporting Football Club Newcastle United.
 
Tony Tailford - Executive Director UK
By many Tony is seen as the operational heart of Lubbers. And for the right reasons; At the age of 17 Tony started working with his father who was an own operator truck driver, together they developed Ron Tailford Haulage (RTH) in the UK and by the age of 25 Tony was running the company.
 
Tony is self taught and learned all aspects of how to run a transport company, including running the yard, planning, developing the fleet and managing of staff. Tony built RTH into a dominant UK based International Transport Company specialising in the energy sector. RTH became an agent for Lubbers in the UK shortly after the millennium and after a successful period working together merged fully in 2005. At this time Tony and Ronald Lubbers were the 2 shareholders of Lubbers Transport Group. Since then he has had a leading role in the growth and development of Lubbers as a dominant global player in complex transport and logistics. To further facilitate the growth ambitions Tony and Ronald decided in 2013 to sell a part of the shares to private equity firm AAC Capital.
 
Tony is now our Executive Director UK. Tony is a passionate supporter of Newcastle United Football Club and visits the home games as much as possible. He enjoys golf, walking and watching his son play rugby. 
 
André Mulder - Group Director Sales & Marketing
After getting his bachelor degree in commercial economics André began his career in sales. He worked as a commercial employee and account manager for a workwear supplier for several years. This experience brought him to Lubbers in 2006. He held several sales and business development positions within the company. And he played an important role in developing Lubbers as a leading player in European Road Transport for the Energy sector.
 
In 2016 he became our Group Director Sales & Marketing. We know him as a hard worker, a people manager, driven and reliable. André is professional, optimistic and fun to work with.
 
In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his two sons like swimming, going to the forest and playing football.
 
Rob van Paassen, Group Director Finance & IT
Rob is a true financial specialist. After getting his bachelordegree in economics, Rob began his career in Finance. As a senior Financial Administrator he helped to further develop the financial set-up of professional football club FC Groningen. This experience and new developed network made him decide to start as a consultant at Yacht Finance and take on Financial Controller jobs for larger companies like UMCG, Stork Technical Services and Univé.
 
In 2005 Rob decided to offer (interim) management and project services as an independent entrepreneur and started his own company. In 2013 Rob started an interim job for Lubbers and we are happy that he joined our team permanently soon after. Rob is now our Group Director Finance & IT.
 
In his spare time Rob likes to travel, listen to music and enjoy (technical) gadgets. But his biggest hobby is watching and visiting professional football matches.
