Q&A: Tejo Willemsen

Written by Lauren Holtmeier

Do you have future aspirations to get more involved in DFA leadership?

Of course I have ambition to do more, but I’m talking about balance all the time, and I need to make sure I keep balance in my own life and businesses too. There are only 24 hours in a day and seven days in a week, and I’m not the type of guy to do something if I can’t put 100 percent into it. I’m at a point where I have good managers working for me, and I’m comfortable enough to take on a Cooperative or industry leadership role without hurting my own businesses. I will continue to stay involved with my Cooperative — I just have to find that balance.
