I was born in Vancouver. At the age of 5, we moved to the Netherlands. I am the proud father of our daughter and son. In my free time I love travelling, sailing and mountain biking.
Already at high school I founded a company, importing specialised regatta sailing clothes to fund my passion for regatta sailing. I had the company until I finished my MSc Business Administration with a specialisation in strategic marketing and management in Groningen.
After working in Marketing and Sales for different multinational high-tech companies, I continued my career in management for different companies, specialised in human resources. In this phase I learned that a vital key success factor for true transformation is Leadership. This was the trigger to start my own company to support in change management and leadership.
Since 2015 I combine this with lecturing Marketing, Organisation & Leadership and Thesis Supervision at the Rotterdam Business School. I love to provide students with the essentials for becoming successful leaders and making the difference in the future.
