Hennie van den Hengel
Founder of Tripsite
Hennie is Dutch through and through, from her love for cycling to her strong work ethic. Born in Holland, she lived there 34 years before coming to Pennsylvania. Along with daughter Gea, Hennie founded Tripsite in a spare bedroom of her home.
Those who know Hennie, know that she brings a passion to everything she does. It brings her great joy that the business is now truly a family affair as daughter Carla and son Jan are on board as well.
Prior to starting Tripsite, Hennie, and her husband owned and operated farms in both the Netherlands and their adopted home of Pennsylvania and at one point even ran a sporting goods store.
An entrepreneur at heart, Hennie combined her excitement for cycling with her love for business in growing her company and outgrowing the spare bedroom!
