I have worked for 35 years in banking (ABN AMRO Bank) in the Netherlands, Brazil and Indonesia. I was the vice chairman of the board and CFRO at PGGM NV and worked as a large pension fund administrator and asset manager. I hold a degree in executive coaching program from Phoenix Opleidingen. I am actively involved in leadership development programs for top management in the financial industry.
I live together with my wife Catharina in Baarn, the Netherlands. I am an avid long distance walker. Together with our sons, Catharina and I like sailing in Friesland.
