Meet the team
The North Sea Fossils team constists of the following people:
Jeroen Kempers, the operating manager, takes care of the day to day business. He determines and conserves all our fossils and coördinates general proceedings. Jeroen has been fascinated by fossil material since his childhood, which has created a huge and diverse practical knowledge.
Mirjam Post, the director of the company, studied law at the University of Groningen. She updates and manages the website and handles the internet sales and enquiries, so your emails will probably be answered by her. She comes from a fossil loving family so she was surrounded with fossils from age zero!
For large and/or important projects we collaborate closely with the following specialists:
Dick Mol is known worldwide as the ‘most professional amateur’ in paleontology, and especially as ‘Mr Mammoth’. Scientists from all over the world contact Mol when they need to discuss mammoth issues. Mol has produced countless scientific publications and has led expeditions to Alaska, Siberia and the North Sea. He also advises the Natuurhistorisch Museum Rotterdam.
Remie Bakker graduated from the Acadamy of Visual Arts in Rotterdam. His company Manimalworks specializes in producing scientifially correct models of humans and animals from past and present. He does a lot of complex restoration work for North Sea Fossils and he is the only one who assembles our skeletons.
