Marcel Ververs is Product Manager Delft-FEWS with a focus on all Support and Maintenance (S&M) contracts. He has been responsible for the delivery of all services which are part of S&M Service packages. He has been involved in the CSB from the start in the year 2015. Marcel: “The CSB is a crucial platform to get feedback from the community about strategic matters that affect the whole, or larger parts of the community.”
Marcel has a long history with the Delft-FEWS software. His first involvement dates to 2004 when he was improving the forecasting system for the river Rhine and Meuse in the Netherlands. Soon after that, he was involved in a big project for the Environment Agency setting up a new forecasting system for the entire United Kingdom. Since then his role in the Delft-FEWS team kept on growing and in 2008 he became one of the Delft-FEWS product managers. His strong commitment to the Delft-FEWS software is based on the wide range of possibilities it offers, and even more importantly, on the great experience of being part of a community that is so closely involved in the constant improvement of the product. This worldwide community is still growing and continues to bring us new interesting challenges to be discussed in future CSB meetings.
