Meet our team

Kees de Rijke – CEO


After a bachelor studies Analytical Chemistry/Chemical Technology I have worked as sales representative and product manager at Chrompack, Pharmacia LKLB and Biochrom Ltd. in Benelux and Europe. My specialization is HPLC as well as Spectrophotometry.

In 2003 I started my own company LabMakelaar Benelux, which I expanded in 2011. In the same year the company moved to the offices in Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel. The LabMakelaar team grew further in 2014 with additions in sales and the technical department as well as in office support. We are located now in Zevenhuizen (ZH).

My personal interest and hobbies are politics (I have been a member of the Rotterdam-Prins Alexander district council for 10 years), religion, art, culture and travelling.

Christian Belt – Project leader


After working in the hospitality industry for several years, I decided to switch careers and started working as a first mechanic. At S+B I gained experience as project leader. I started at LabMakelaar Benelux in 2015.

I am responsible for all projects in Benelux whenever laboratory furniture is involved.

In my spare time I like watching films and gardening, as well as being a handyman.

After an engineering degree in the life sciences, I worked for eight years at the University of Antwerp as a mass spectrometry and proteomics expert. Afterwards I worked five years as LCMS and HPLC area manager for Thermo Fisher Scientific.

At Royal van Zanten I have been responsible for the tissue culture laboratory for several years. 

As an independent consultant I am working as interim quality manager for laboratories, among others. Furthermore, being sales agent for LabMakelaar, my focus is on creating and developing new activities in Eastern Europe.
