Chief of International Markets


Henk Siebren de Jong was appointed Chief of International Markets in April 2017 with responsibility for the results of all Philips activities (with the exception of North America and Greater China). He is also a member of the Board of Philips Capital N.V.


Henk joined Philips in 1990. His most recent role was Market Leader in Latin America (LATAM). Under his leadership, the region delivered consistent profitable growth in frequently challenging local environments. Henk also led major transformations in our businesses across the region. Among his achievements, he drove productivity implementing LEAN; led a more a customer-centered approach in our Personal Health businesses and oversaw a shift towards a more innovative solutions-based approach in our Health Systems businesses. Prior to that he held a number of leadership roles in Philips’ former Consumer Lifestyle businesses in Europe and Asia.

Treating individual diseases in isolation does not do justice to the increasingly large number of patients with multiple chronic conditions (MCC). That’s why we at Philips believe care should be organized holistically around MCC patients.
