I am co-founder of Focus Orange and Crunchr. It was my dream to become an entrepreneur and after ten years in a global partnership organisation, 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 in which we organize our client services. Most of the time I am working with clients, as adviser to Supervisory Boards and HR directors in their role as employer.
My style is interactive, I enjoy working in an informal team structure. I love logic, a reasoned story that serves the interests of the organization. I also like to switch between conceptual and specific, so that implications of strategic choices become clear and are being considered.
In addition to my work for Focus Orange, I am a guest lecturer at different executive programs 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 chairman of the social enterprise Move. I enjoy coaching start-up entrepreneurs, using my learnings to accelerate their growth.
