Digital era - 2000's
In 2001, the AutoWeek website took off. An IT-professional built the site and Henny was assigned to provide the news.
Wherever she was in the world, she aired the news as soon as she got it. From the start, the site has been regularly extended with new features.
By 2004, autoweek.nl became most successful with 25 million page views per month and 700,000 unique visitors per month.
In 2004 an extra web editor was employed, so Henny had more time to write for GTO Magazine. She contributed to the site on a regular basis.
Also, her heavy input in AutoWeek, The Washington Times, Automobiel Management and Living remained unchanged. And the same was the case for
which site was extended in January 2005 with a portal in the Spanish language:
thecarconnection En Español.
In 2002, the editor-in-chief of AutoWeek got the green light from his publisher to start a long term wish: a glossy magazine.
With the input
of all his staff at AutoWeek, the first issue of the new GTO Magazine was launched in January 2003.
Again Henny joined a magazine from its
start. After a successful year with four issues, GTO is now published as a bi-monthly with a circulation of 25,000.
In June 2005, the German version of GTO was launched in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
In February 2007, Henny was elected as member
of the Works council of Sanoma Men's Magazines, the publishers of AutoWeek. By the end of that year, though, she left the company, founded a
private limited company and picked up free lance writing.
She was asked to write for Autokampioen, the bi-weekly magazine of the ANWB (the Dutch Automobile Association) and started contributing to
Automedia and Het Financieële Dagblad.
Starting 2008, Henny is Senior European Editor of The Auto Channel, one of the largest independent automotive websites and the official website of New Car Buyer
In 2009, she added TopTime Magazine to her portfolio.
