I was born and raised in the province of Noord-Brabant (Breda). After obtaining my law degree in Groningen, I started my career in the legal profession, specializing in corporate law and insolvency law. After a number of years, I felt the need to work in a more commercial environment. I switched to recruitment & executive search, a field in which I filled a number of different management positions. In that period, I also spent a wonderful time travelling in South-East Asia. After my return, I returned to the world of recruitment & executive search, where I became responsible for the Dutch operations of Morgan McKinley (Associate Director).
I am a passionate person, and the essence of my work has always been achieving the best possible outcome. I want to get the best out of whatever I do, I always want to win. That’s how I ended up with Kneppelhout, where they give me all the space I need to do what I love doing most: entering into new relationships and building on existing ones. I feel very much at ease here, firstly because Kneppelhout focuses on its clients and has the ambition to be their business partner rather than merely address legal issues.
'I work long hours, which does not always please my wife. In my spare time, I like to live the good life: good food, accompanied by a glass of fine wine. I also like to add treasures to my wine cellar. My ideal moment? Enjoying those wines on my boat in the Amsterdam canals.'
