The Partners

Chezz Partners is the surprising and energetic result of synergy between Ir. Peter Adema (1958) and Ing. André Jansen  MBA (1964). Together they have over 40 years of entrepreneurial experience, mostly in industrial SME ventures. The combination has created a whole that is much more than the sum of its parts.

Peter: “It’s a challenge to devise a strategy for technically oriented companies, and then secure the choices organisationally, legally and financially.”

André: ’People make the difference. I like working with SME staff. It is very satisfying for me to see when the right people are in the right positions within our companies.’

Peter Adema studied technical business management at the University of Eindhoven. He became an independent entrepreneur in 1991, following a management buyout of a subsidiary of Philips in Breda. The first takeover of a company followed soon and he got involved in startup ventures. Over the course of time, a number of holdings were sold, which provided opportunities for new initiatives.

André Jansen studied mechanical engineering and technical business management. He started his own metalworking company at the age of 20. André, who obtained his MBA in 2005, is an entrepreneur. Over the years, he was involved in many companies as a shareholder and director. These were companies in a wide range of sectors, for example machinery construction, technical supply, sales and service of production machinery, and artistically designed polyurethane floors.
