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 few 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. When I came back, 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. This is why I began working at 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, mostly 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 can be somewhat of a challenge in my personal life. In my spare time, I like to live the good life: good food, and 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.'
