Non-Executive Director / Consultant 

I am an experienced private equity professional with a background in investment, strategy consulting and corporate finance. I work with private equity managers and portfolio companies to drive value creation and improve returns. I am a Dutch national and have worked across Europe and North America.

In the early 1990s, I was a member of the investment banking division of Swiss Bank Corporation in London. In 1995, I joined global strategy consultants Bain & Company in London, where I worked on a wide range of strategy and private equity projects.

In 2002 I swapped London for Edinburgh and joined SL Capital, the private equity business of Standard Life Investments. There I was a partner and a member of the investment committee with a focus on co-investments and manager selection. Since 2015, I have worked independently on private equity projects and as a business mentor and non-executive.

I speak fluent Dutch and proficient German. Outside work, I am a motorcycle enthusiast and an occasional silversmith. I am also a runner and I have an interest in architecture and digital leadership.
