Meet the Team
We are not just colleagues, we are a group of homies. We work together, laugh together, cry together, and we have fun together. We would love to get to know you but let us first introduce ourselves…
Jarno | Chief of Homey's
Hey, it’s Jarno and I am the CEO of this fast-moving versatile brand. As a retired semiprofessional – nowadays veteran – motor cross racer, I live life at full throttle and off the track. That is exactly why I am proud to call myself a Homey! I get to work with our motivated team of pragmatic fanatics and create tools that embody our Homey’s DNA. To me, that’s what it’s all about.
+ Sidecar MX and cooking
- Reluctant people

Roel | Homey's Warrior
Hi my name is Roel. Proud to be one of the founding fathers of our tools. Within the Homey’s team, I have the best imaginable job… Making the world as crazy about Homey’s Tools For Life as we are. How? By working with those who are as crazy as we are. Whether you are a world-famous artist with a badass story to tell or a fanatic outdoor specialist interested in that cool story - let’s make greatness together!
Fun fact, I love the word ‘impossible’ because I will do everything to make sure it happens. One way or the other. Ain’t no mountain high enough, ain’t no river – well, you get it.
+ Family, friends, dining, and sharing

Next adventure: a trip to Japan
Favorite Tool: the pocket knife by Schiffmacher is my EDC tool
Samantha | Memories Architect
Hi, Sam here. I am the (digital) marketing specialist behind Homey’s. I oversee all the communication from us to you – and back. Inspiring others with our passion, dedication, and wild crazy thoughts. That's what gets me out of bed every morning, next to my alarm clock.
Every day is a different day and sometimes I get to do crazy stuff. I once went into the Catacombs of Paris with our homey’s La Vie en C. Just a little illegal so sshht... Most days I am hanging around the office, not breaking the law. In my free time, I love to travel around the world. Meeting new people, discovering different cultures, and tasting amazing new food. When I am not working or traveling you can find me at the gym, in the kitchen, or at my friends' house somewhere near their pets.
+ Food, dogs, more food, and more dogs
- The cold and cilantro
Next adventure: Iceland or Mexico
Favorite Tool: Charcuterie knives (perfect for last-minute gifts)
Jeroen | Creator of Opportunities
This is Jeroen, born Hieronymus, creator of opportunities as they call me here. I am proud of the name Hieronymus. Since my mother was homesick to her birth town Den Bosch, she named me after the famous medieval painter, Hieronymus Bosch. Link? Not necessarily accepting the standard but further than that I do not even stand close to his shadow…
From the moment we started with Homey’s, we have only had fun creating our tools and the stories around them. Always seeking the next adventure in everyday life and business – and that is where I come in!
If you ask me, it is all about not taking yourself too seriously. That is why Homey’s fits me and makes me proud. We are on this planet for an average of 80 years only. Let’s make the best out of it and let us not stop thinking about tomorrow. That is why I love to hang out with friends and family, drink, sport, and eat – In changing order!
+ “Slappe klets” (chit-chat
