Personal profile Rob van den Breekel
Rob van den Breekel became infected with the 'footwear virus' when he was a kid. He always had the goal to develop and create shoes. Both his grandfather and father worked in the Dutch shoe industry (in the background the Rob's father is still involved in the sample development) and production of footwear. Van den Breekel Schoenen BV was founded in 2003 based of his experience working at various footwear companies (e.g. Ecco, Berkelmans). With his experience in brand building and because of the increasing demand in exclusive (comfort) footwear concepts, Rob decided to focus on the development for third parties. That gives him the space to focus on his passion: the development and production of honest and innovative footwear concepts.
