GoudswaardAbout Dirk Goudswaard (Netherlands), Member of the Board of Europartners.

In February 2015 Dirk Goudswaard joined the Board of Europartners. Dirk came to Christ in 2008 after being ministered through CBMC Netherlands marketplace evangelism. The way of conducting business changed with his transformation and is an amazing experience full of surprises. Dirk studied mechatronics in Rotterdam (NL) and started his professional career in the position of sales engineer at the French-English multinational GEC-Alsthom.

Now Dirk is owner and managing director of VarioDrive, a company that offers both integrated motion control solutions for complete mechatronic systems, as well as highly customised drive components for special machines. Since 1996 VarioDrive has established itself as one of the leading Motion Control companies in the Netherlands.

Dirk got involved in marketplace evangelism by the Dutch CBMC team, among them Wouter Droppers. By serving Europartners, Dirk longs to contribute to reach the business people who do not know Christ and help them to find the Truth, the Way and the Life. Things that are most dear to Dirk in life are love of Christ, his family and his friends. Dirk lives in Oud-Beijerland, close to Rotterdam, with his wife and 3 children.
