A change is coming in the management of Dutch theme park Efteling. Director Coen Bertens will step down from his role on February 1, 2021.
"Efteling is a dynamic organisation that moves with the times," Bertens said. "This also applies to me; it is time for a next step in my career. I look forward to inspiring others with everything I have been able to learn here in recent years."
Nicole Scheffer, Efteling's current Hotels & Resorts Director will take over for Bertens as director of the Park business unit. With Bertens' departure from the organization, four people will remain on Efteling's Board of Directors: Scheffer, CEO Fons Jurgens, CFO Daan van Baarsen, and Koen Sanders, who will take over the role Hotels & Resorts Director in addition to his current role as Commerce, Creation & Development Director.
Bertens has been with Efteling for 23 years. A park press release created his leadership for "great steps in establishing collaborations with other theme parks, increasing cooperation between Efteling colleagues and enhancing the visitor experience."
