Over mij

Who I am 

  Working on more complex M&A issues and overcoming obstacles during processes is what gives me motivation. Together with the entrepreneur, we explore what a company's most important assets are and develop a tailor-made strategy for the acquisition process. Not only focused on pursuing the transaction, but also to understand the motivations of potential buyers and the needs of the client. In my spare time, I play several sports and I play golf. I can express my creativity in my photography hobby. A good work-life balance is very important to me and I like spending time with friends and family to enjoy shared experiences.

What entrepreneurship means to me

Entrepreneurship is actively dealing with challenges and seizing opportunities with the intent of creating positive change in growth and optimisation. I have a great affinity with entrepreneurship because I believe it has the power to stimulate innovation and growth, not only professionally but also personally. Entrepreneurship within M&A is essential because every process is different and market developments call for creativity and thinking ahead if you want to achieve the best possible result.

Why Marktlink is the place for me

The extraordinary way Marktlink uses data to identify potential buyers in the traditional M&A market is what appeals to me. In countless cases, our combined knowledge of potential buyers has led to surprising acquisitions from both domestic and international parties.
