Oct 14, 2019

On November 1, 2019, Bert Zoetbrood (58) will take over the management of the DEKRA North America region in addition to his role as Executive Vice President and Head of the DEKRA South America region. Born in the Netherlands, he has worked for the global expert organization DEKRA for ten years. Before taking up his post in South America, he managed the Product Testing and Certification service unit based in Arnhem (NL) and successfully expanded the international business.

In North America, he is taking over the reins from Eric Labe, who after seven years is leaving DEKRA at his own request to work in the health care sector. “We thank Eric Labe for his important and successful work for DEKRA in North Ameri-ca and wish him all the best for his new role,” says Clemens Klinke, member of the DEKRA SE Management Board and also responsible for the eight DEKRA regions around the world. “In Bert Zoetbrood, we have acquired a brilliant expert in the global testing business for this post.”
DEKRA’s corporate structure is divided into eight service divisions and eight regions, including both the North and South America regions with annual revenue of more than EUR 125 million.
