New manager Operations

Last year DCE appointed Femke Goedhart as manager Operations. Unfortunately Femke wasn’t able to continue this role as a result of a work project abroad.

Drum Corps Europe would once again thank Femke for her hard work last year and is pleased to announce the new managers Operations Laura en Willem van Niersen. They were already part of the volunteer’s team last year.

Both Laura and Willem have a background in Jong Jubal and Jubal.

Laura marched from 2002 until 2011, first as a guard member, later as a brass member.

She was a member of the brass staff of Jong Jubal from 2012 until 2014.

Willem started as a drummer at Showband Taxandria from 1992 until 2005. After that he was a brass member of Jubal from 2004 until 2011. In 2013 and 2014 he joined the brass/visual staff of Jong Jubal. Willem has a degree in Logistics.

They both joint Jubal’s DCI tour in 2006 and 2011.

DCE welcomes Laura and Willem to the DCE family and wish them a lot of success and fun with the exciting possibilities of the new European Music Games Finals venue the Grolsch Veste.
