His strength is that he is close to the people, both our guests and our employees.    In addition, I am extremely grateful to Noël for his years of dedication and commitment to Holland Casino. I have great admiration for the fact that someone who has been with a company for so long can still think so fresh about the future. That is not given to everyone. I am pleased that Noël is prepared to use his knowledge and expertise for Holland Casino in the coming months.”

Incoming director of operations Hans van Slooten: “It is a great honor to succeed Noël. I have great respect for his wonderful career, his commitment and inexhaustible drive for our beautiful company.
