From 1 May 2023, Mike Minten (37) is CEO of Kersten Group. He replaces Hans Besseling who recently announced his departure, having held the position since 2002.


Mike Minten is no stranger to the Kersten Group. In 2009, he started his career as a Sales Engineer at Kersten in the Netherlands. From 2013 to 2018, he was abroad to the United Arab Emirates where he set up and grew a fourth subsidiary of Kersten. Since his return to the Netherlands, he has held the position of Managing Director of Kersten in the Netherlands. From 1 May, he is also CEO of the Kersten Group.

Continuous innovation

In his new role as CEO of the Kersten Group, Minten responds to new opportunities, markets and innovations. "Kersten has always been a pioneer in its field and we want to stay that way.  For instance, we are innovating with projects that focus on sustainability and energy transition. In addition, a key focus is on developing our team, modern technology and digitalisation, making the organisation even more agile and efficient."

Continued growth

The new CEO is looking forward to his new position and is confident about the future. "I see plenty of opportunities for further growth and continued development of Kersten. We have a strong team with great craftsmanship and experience, and modern machinery with which we can meet any technical challenge. Our International Sales Team is driven, knows the markets we serve today, but also knows where tomorrow's opportunities lie."
