About me

Who I am

I am a farmer's son, so I was brought up in a family of entrepreneurs and have an affinity with entrepreneurs. At a young age, I learned to get my hands dirty. Besides entrepreneurship, it was stimulated to have a good business instinct. After obtaining my degree in business administration with a financial specialisation, the obvious next step was to wind up in the world of mergers and acquisitions. And the accidental choice of Marktlink turned out to be a fantastic match. A choice I am still happy with every day.

What entrepreneurship means to me

Besides helping entrepreneurs, we actually are entrepreneurs within Marktlink. To me, entrepreneurship is seizing opportunities, together with the team and celebrating success or learning from failures. With the motto; it's a small fire, but it is our fire. If we all start blowing together, it will burn even brighter but if we stamp on it, it will go out. That shared sense of responsibility appeals to me.

Why Marktlink is the place for me

The contact with a wide variety of SME entrepreneurs makes me look forward to each day. After all, what could be more fun than working daily with entrepreneurs about to take one of the biggest steps in their professional lives?
