Since 2011 I am a partner and co-founder of Focus Orange and I am responsible for our retirement practice. I now have more than 25 years of experience as a consultant within the broad retirement domain. I am at my best in change processes that are complex by means of process and substance. For example, the strategic reorientation of pension funds, (re-)designing the pension scheme for employers and the selection process of a pension provider. In addition to content, process and stakeholder management are crucial in these processes.
With a background as an econometrist and actuary, I gained a lot of experience as a consultant to large companies and as a (certifying) actuary for a large number of pension funds in the Netherlands. At Focus Orange we see that we are accomplished in helping our clients in tackling and making decisions, where others often get stuck in drafting reports. We do this by using substantive knowledge pragmatically combined with empathy, with a strong emphasis on change and stakeholder management. Strategically sharp and I know how to switch sensitively & tactically to achieve results within deadlines. Our network in the retirement and financial sector is large.
In addition to playing sports (mainly running because football and squash have been bothered by injuries) I like to travel the world with my family.
