Dutch politician for the Party of Labor and Director. He is also chairman of the Alders tables for the airports Schiphol , Eindhoven and Lelystad , chairman of the Supervisory Board of ProRail and National Coordinator Groningen . Alders was previously Minister for Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (1989-1994) and Queen's Commissioner (1996-2007) in the province of Groningen.

Hans Alders was National Coordinator Groningen from 1 June 2015. On 30 May 2018 he made it known to resign.

Alders was PvdA Member of Parliament, minister and director. He did not complete any secondary school education and developed through self-study . He was soon a prominent member of the PvdA party in the House of Representatives . He was spokesperson for, among other things, civil servants and later secretary of the PvdA party and confidant of Wim Kok . Alders came as Minister for Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment in the Lubbers III cabinet with notes on spatial planning (Vinex ) and environmental policy ( NMP-plus) . He moved to an international position after his ministry.

Alders was Commissioner of the Queen in the province of Groningen from 1996 to 2007. On 1 September 2007 he was succeeded by Max van den Berg .

After his period as a politician, he held a large number of positions. On 1 October 2007, Alders became Chairman of the Board of the Energy Netherlands. He is also chairman of the Supervisory Board of the University Medical Center Groningen .

Alders was discredited by his many well-paid side positions. In 2005 Alders came in the news after researching a national weekly magazine, because he had the highest income from additional positions of all Queen's commissioners. He received 48,000 euros from the Health, Mental and Social Interest Pension Fund (PGGM) and over 17,000 euros per year from Gasunie. Alders managed - as far as is known to be the only one - to almost double his income as a former Queen's Commissioner with additional income. Commissioners earned a ministerial salary: 122,000 euros per year. Alders earned at least 212,689 euros annually. It should be noted that Alders' income from three of his eight paid additional positions could not be traced.

In 2008, Hans Alders became Chairman of the Alderstafel, from which an advice was given about the noise pollution at Schiphol Airport. From October 2008 to October 2011, Alders chaired the Biodiversity and Natural Resources Taskforce . This taskforce was intended to provide the government with suggestions for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in the longer term. On 27 June 2014, Alders was appointed chairman of the Supervisory Board of Prorail on 1 July of that year.

In 2014, Alders had more than 20 jobs. He was also appointed as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of ProRail that year .

On 1 May 2015 it became known that Alders would become the National Coordinator Groningen from 1 June . In this way, Alders was in charge of a new government department of more than 100 officials from central government, province and municipalities. This Government Service should better regulate the handling of earthquake damage and the strengthening of buildings in the earthquake area in Groningen (as a result of gas extraction in the Slochteren natural gas field). Alders still has at least five well-paid part-time jobs: at ProRail, the Mussel Transition Administrative Consultation, the Schiphol Environment Council, the Alderstafel Lelystad, the AOG School of Management. As a National Coordinator, he works 32 hours a week. (Source: RTVNoord, 08-06-2017). Alders has, within rail transport, previously made a big turnover as commissioner of the Queen with the very ambitious plan for a magnetic whip railway. By using this very high, it could be said that a new, normal but fast rail connection between North-Germany-Groningen-Drachten-Heereveen-Lemmer-Emmeloord-Lelystad and so on to the Randstad has become impossible. The Hanzelijn Zwolle-Lelystad was there.

As chairman of the Supervisory Board of ProRail, in September 2015, he decided not to issue two internal documents about the financial situation of Prorail, which the House of Representatives had requested. Eventually the documents leaked out via newspaper De Telegraaf .


Alders married in 1972 and has a daughter. His wife died of an incurable disease in 2007, the day before he said farewell to the Queen's Commissioner.
