I am co-founder and partner at Focus Orange and Crunchr. It was my great wish to become an entrepreneur and after ten years in paid employment I met Dirk Jonker and started this adventure. My activities are very diverse; working on the strategic direction of our organizations, and on the way we organize and present ourselves. I also support Crunchr’s marketing and sales team, and I am active as adviser to Supervisory Boards and HR directors on strategic employment practices.
My style is interactive, I enjoy working with people. I love logic, a reasoned story that serves the interests of the organization. I also like to switch between conceptual and concrete, so that the implication become clear and choices and considerations are clear to everyone.
In addition to my work for Focus Orange, I am a guest lecturer at the Supervisory Board program of TIAS Business School. I regularly publish on social issues that concern me and wrote a book together with Hein Haenen, called ‘Bovenbazen en de scheefgroei van hun beloning’. I am also chairman of the social enterprise Move, and I coach starting entrepreneurs.
