Jamie de Jong
General Manager and Owner, Broeck Oudewater
A dream came true for Jamie de Jong when he got the opportunity to start his own hotel Broeck Oudewater, an independent hotel in the city center of Oudewater. The hotel opened its doors in March 2021 during the pandemic. Broeck has a special social mission as they strive for an inclusive workforce. In collaboration with a local health care partner, they are able to create learning and workplaces and daytime activities with the correct support. A safe way of working and learning is very important! At Broeck they work with people with or without labour disabilities. The staff with a labour disability could have (light) mental or physical disability, disorders, or hearing- or visual impairment. Their high level of service and hospitality in combination with a social mission is very impressive. Together with his companion Don Janmaat, they are responsible for a hotel with 24 rooms, meeting facilities and a well-visited restaurant with around 110 seats. The perfect place to explore the green heart of the Netherlands. Jamie has a background is marketing and communication. Prior to starting his own company, he worked at several hospitality concepts and in the international expat industry.
