In 1992 I started working as a temp for an accounting company. Temporary because I had no idea what to do with my life and because I still had to service military.
I really enjoyed the work, puzzling with numbers. After years of working daytime and studying in the evening, I became a serious accountant. Working at Deloitte I enjoyed working and achieving goals as part of a team. I also found out that I was actually a lot more entrepreneurial than I anticipated.
In 2004 I started my own accountancy firm. First without employees, later building up to a team of ten people. My interests developed to the person in and behind the organization and why they do what they do. The last five years I was freelance accountant, entrepreneur, business coach and financial expert.
Client and friend Dieco introduced me to Erik and they shared their thoughts and challenges regarding UMBRiO. For me this came as an invitation at the right moment. I was open for a new challenge, meeting my desire to focus and be part of a team once again.
I am very pleased to structure and monitor the finance department of UMBRiO. Also working together to build a strong, sustainable, innovating and challenging company makes me happy.
“The only way to do GREAT work is to love what you do!”
In my spare time I like biking, hiking and travelling. Last year I cycled the Gran Fondo New York in favor of the diabetes Foundation.
I’m enjoying the ride of Chief Financial Officer at UMBRiO! Do you want to join us? I’m looking forward meeting you!
