Past his mid thirties he started his own business in interim management, training and consulting. He became an APICS instructor during that time as well. It was in 2008 that Hans first heard about The Fresh Connection, the world's leading value chain training simulation. He was interested instantly and together with Egge Haak, the initiator of The Fresh Connection, he started working on international expansion. These career choices have taken him to all continents on the globe, where he delivers training to practitioners as well as (senior) managers and executives. 
Since 2010 Hans is a Partner at Inchainge, the company that develops and markets The Fresh Connection as well as The Cool Connection, another simulation focused on supply chain finance.
