Jelmer Melissen, VIGGO
Jelmer Melissen
Chief Technology Officer

The whole aviation adventure all started out working on the Ramp of Eindhoven Airport whilst studying at the Technical University of Eindhoven. After gaining broad operational experience in the various Viggo daughter companies, I was able to combine an engineering approach and tacit operational insights with a hands on mentality. The Viggo Holding welcomed me into the Managment Team to further develop IT tools that make airport service processes more efficient & effective and better suited for a modern workforce. These tools become so professional, that Viggo started a technology and consulting spin out named Smart Solutions by Viggo. Today as the CTO of Smart Solutions by Viggo, I am is keen on solving puzzles taking into consideration both the human factor & organisational impact of automation and innovation with a team of enthusiastic and multiskilled solution providers. As a happy father of my son, I try to divide my time between my family, work and long distance cycling. No challenge is big enough, both in cycling and in aviation puzzles :)
