Youri’s link with Marktlink
“My interest in Marktlink stems from my commercial and financial background. I am also highly motivated to combine my analytical skills with my social abilities. During my studies I came into contact with M&A a lot, which is why I became very interested in this sector. The absence of an industry and business focus means that at Marktlink you can come into contact with a wide range of companies, for which you can work at a high level both financially and strategically. This, together with the dynamics that the short turnaround time of a transaction entails and the relevance of the work due to the many interests within a transaction, means that I cannot imagine a more challenging working environment. A positive point for me personally is that merger and acquisition advice is truly Marktlink’s product, in contrast to other finance positions, where finance is more of a supporting role within a company.”
