“I grew up in business, starting work immediately after completing secondary school and learning my trade on the job. My career began at Nederlandse Credietbank, followed by De Lage Landen, before joining ABN AMRO. I worked at ABN AMRO for almost 25 years, holding consecutive positions at the lease company in the Netherlands, the bank subsidiaries in Indonesia and Brazil and finally at the Netherlands business unit. I was then appointed as a member of the Board of Directors of Van Lanschot NV, a Dutch private bank. Finance and risk management have always been my main areas of responsibility.
I am driven by a need to make a real and direct contribution to society. This is reflected in my most recent position as CFRO at PGGM, the pension fund administrator for the Dutch health and social sector. My seats on the supervisory bodies of Espria (healthcare organisation) and Royal Dutch Kentalis (support organisation for the deaf and hard of hearing) are another means of contributing to the heath and welfare sectors.
In addition to my work as a managing board member and supervisory board member, I have recently qualified as an executive coach after completing a three-year study at the Phoenix Institute. I have also gained practical experience in this field in the past few years, carrying out coaching assignments at PGGM and other organisations. These assignments ranged from one-on-one coaching to leadership development of teams.
When not working, I enjoy long-distance walking, sailing and relaxing together with Catharina and our sons at our house in Friesland, a province in the north of the country.
