‘Son of Mart Smeets needs to become new director of PEC Zwolle’

PEC Zwolle has Tjerk Smeets in the sights to become the new managing director. He has to follow up Chairman Adriaan Visser.
Thats what the Stentor reports. Smeets (41) is the son of sports commentator Mart Smeets and has held various positions in the sport. He was a baseball player and then team manager of Ajax. Smeets was appointed as Technical Director of the Royal Dutch Baseball and Softball Bond on February 1, 2018.
Smeets also studied sports marketing at Johan Cruyff University and is now the main candidate to become general manager at PEC, which has several more candidates in their sights. Visser swings as chairman on 1 October and then PEC wants to have a successor. Should Smeets join PEC, after AZ director Robert Eenhoorn, he becomes the second former baseball player to become director at a Premier League club.
