About Johan Faes

Founder and CEO of Faes

Johan Faes

A man with a mission

That Johan Faes is an entrepreneur at heart became clear at an early age; he always had a sixth sense for opportunities and innovation. His musical and technical background landed him in the world of flight cases, but he learned the most by ‘just doing it’, trusting your gut feeling, daring to make mistakes, thinking out-of-the-box. And that has borne fruit; in addition to a flourishing business in the municipality of Reusel – De Mierden, where he was born and raised, he was also nominated for the Best Entrepreneurial Vision award in 2013.

Johan Faes : “Entrepreneurship requires energy, empathy, commitment and stamina. You have to see it as top-class sport and your mission and seize opportunities.” 

Johan was fascinated by motorbikes as a child. He tinkered with mopeds and was a fanatic motocross rider at regional level. But, his real passion was motorsports. As a busy entrepreneur, husband to his wife Jeannette and young father of two children, he stopped racing until he came into contact with the navigator of driver Edwin Abbring in 1999. After this Johan drove for a number of years as driver in the FABORY Rallyteam, which participated in the Dutch Rally Championship.

Yet we do not only look at the present, but also at the future. Innovation, cooperation and sustainability are therefore tangibly part of our long-term vision.
