The Founding Years Before HDF Consulting

1980-1984: Early Endeavors at Suralco

Hubertus de Freytas, fondly known as Huub, commenced his illustrious 40-year journey in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in 1980. Fresh from the AMS, he joined Suralco in the Werktuigbouw, marking the genesis of his passion for automation. A pivotal moment arose when Huub, alongside a Natin graduate, programmed a state-of-the-art lathe in the Central Machine Shop, setting the stage for his profound involvement in the world of ICT.

1984-1989: A Dive into Notarial ICT

Leaving Suralco, Huub ventured into the Notariaat of Mr. C.R. Jadnanansing. Faced with the enormity of IBM’s stature, Huub’s entry into the world of ICT was fortuitously facilitated by Data Management’s Informatica Opleiding. The course laid the foundation for his expertise. At Keycomp Computer Systems, Huub delved into System Administration and COBOL programming, honing skills that would become invaluable in his future endeavors.

1989-1992: EBS and System Programming

Huub’s journey continued at EBS (Energie Bedrijven Suriname), where his programming prowess shone as he rewrote the OGANE gas supply system in COBOL. Recognizing Huub’s multifaceted skills, his manager, Ir. Jacques Willemen, recommended a shift to System Programming. This period saw Huub’s resilience during a critical phase when IBM and other System Programmers left Suriname. Single-handedly, he resurrected a stalled system, earning him the trust and mentorship of his superior, Jacques. In 1992, Huub departed from EBS with an honors award and a certificate of excellence to embark on a new venture.

1992-1993: N.V. Nijros Informatiserings Consultants

In 1992, N.V. Nijros was born in 1992, a collaboration of minds including Huub, Jacques Willemen, Marnix Nijman, Jimmy Rosheuvel and Tony Janssen. The company rapidly expanded, boasting 20 employees within a year. Huub and Jacques spearheaded pivotal projects, specializing in Migrations and Infrastructure development. N.V. Nijros laid the groundwork for Herbert’s understanding of freelancing consultancy. As of today, Nijros does not exist anymore, but all stakeholders are successful owners and founders of ICT companies in Suriname.

1994-1997: Freelancing and the Grit to Succeed

In 1994, Herbert embarked on the path of freelance consulting, a daring move that initially faced formidable challenges. Undeterred by three months of unanswered proposals and a family with young kids to take care of, he persisted. Despite the initial hurdles, Huub’s persistence and unwavering commitment ultimately paid off as projects started streaming in, contributing significantly to renowned companies such as Shell Suriname, Kersten Concern Beheer, and Telesur.
