Roland Jonkhoff Appointed Managing Director of Desso

Desso, a leading carpets and sport pitches company (part of Tarkett), today announced the appointment of Roland Jonkhoff (46) as Managing Director of Desso.

Formerly a divisional Managing Director at Desso, Jonkhoff is now responsible for the complete management of the Desso business and carpet activities within Tarkett EMEA. 

End of December 2014, Desso was acquired by Tarkett, a global leader in flooring and sports surfaces solutions. The two companies share the same vision and entrepreneurial values, as well as a strong commitment to sustainability, both applying Cradle to Cradle® principles at each step of the product’s life cycle and supporting the transition towards the circular economy.

In addition to his new role at Desso, Jonkhoff will also hold the position of Vice President Carpet (EMEA) within the Tarkett organisation.  

Jonkhoff has many years of commercial sales, marketing and leadership experience at a number of organisations including Transavia Airlines, Bolidt Synthetic Applications and the Vita Group, a producer of cellular foams and industrial polymers. In 2008, he joined Desso as Managing Director of the HMA (Hospitality, Marine, Aviation) division. In 2012, Jonkhoff was given the additional responsibilities of Global Strategic Accounts, Customer Services and the Dutch commercial contract business.  

Jonkhoff will maintain Desso’s commitment to implementing Cradle to Cradle® design and the transition towards the circular economy, along with its other innovation drivers of creativity and functionality, all whilst contributing to the company’s vision to make the floor work for people’s health and well-being.

“I am obviously thrilled to be given this opportunity to lead Desso within Tarkett. I am excited about the combined potential for future growth and success of the two companies, knowing that we can build on the continued commitment and creativity of our employees and other stakeholders,” says Jonkhoff.
