Ward received his bachelor’s degree from the Hotel Management School Maastricht and then completed a master’s degree in sustainable finance at Maastricht University. Throughout both his bachelor’s and master’s degree, Ward completed several internships at both small and large consultancies, where he developed his passion for SMEs and the M&A market. Especially the diversity and intensity behind the M&A profession, combined with the human aspect, appealed to Ward. After completing his master’s, Ward joined Marktlink as a consultant on 1 October 2022.
