About me

Who I am

People who know me would describe me as a hard-working, enterprising and energetic person. I’m people-centred and get a lot of energy from achieving the best deal for a client together.

What entrepreneurship means to me

To me, entrepreneurship means daring to take opportunities that present themselves and adopting a solution-oriented approach. Facing the risks involved and the guts to stick to your vision. My affinity with entrepreneurship started when I was young. My parents owned a temporary employment agency for hospitality workers, for which I worked for years. When I moved to Amsterdam for my Finance studies, I continued the business alongside for several years.

Why Marktlink is the place for me

After my Master Corporate Finance at the University of Amsterdam, I had multiple interviews in the M&A segment. In my opinion, what distinguishes Marktlink from the rest, is its can-do mentality and enterprising character. In addition to a huge amount of market and deal knowledge, we are intrinsically motivated to make the most of every deal for our clients. That much was clear from my very first interview.
