3. What is a common prejudice about your work?

Ronald: 'People have the idea that salespeople only talk and socialize a on the phone and that they only freewheel a little. That may be the case sometimes, but it is also something very serious. You're having serious conversations with end users and dealers, and sometimes that can be tough. For many companies, it's also about being able to make a good profit. We also have contact with purchasing parties and those talks are at the cutting edge. Those conversations are sometimes a little less pleasant and that is often not seen by many people.'

4. What is your most memorable Van Raam-moment?

Marjolein: 'That may sound strange, but having the feeling that we are achieving something beautiful together. The best thing I like about Van Raam isthe Van Raam parties, the Maypole party which had quite a highlight.' Read more about Marjolein's favorite moment in the article 'Festive opening of new bicycle factory Van Raam'.

5. What is your favorite Van Raam bike?

Jan-Willem: 'My own favorite Van Raam bicycle has yet to be invented. The real comfort of an adapted bicycle is still missing. A nice bike would be one that allowed you to cycle on a bike path in an upright position and not notice any bumps in the road. That is actually the most beautiful bicycle that should be available.

Favorite bikes of the board Easy Rider and Fun2Go

Marjolein:'My favorite Van Raam bike is the Easy Rider. It just cycles great.

Ronald: 'Of course I have many favorite bikes. All of Van Raam's bikes are my favorites, but if I have to name one, I think the Fun2Go is great. Why? With this bike you help people who would otherwise be sitting behind the geraniums. The bike is often sold at nursing homes, institutions, places like that. You give these people a chance to get out again. This is very pleasant, both for them and for their carers. It keeps them moving and everything is easier, like climbing stairs. So as far as I'm concerned the Fun2Go is the top model of Van Raam.
