Over 13 years ago, I decided to use my knowledge, network and experience within the international logistics field to help companies fill their senior management positions. With main focus in supporting clients how key positions can best be filled. This is what makes the Executive Search discipline so interesting and fun. It is about the strong focus on content and quality, and translating the stakeholders’ wishes within an organization to candidates. Together with a very pleasant team that is constantly eager to find talent in the international logistics and Supply Chain market. We hold opinions that challenges our clients, candidates, and especially our own team to continuously bring forward successful and creative solutions. Besides that, we have fun and support each other when necessary.

Apart from SCM Executives, my passion can be found in helping people who are less fortunate than we are in the Western world. I am thankful that I can be part of Stichting4Life, to give women and children in the biggest slum of Africa a chance at work and education. With the team of Stichting4Life at our office in Amstelveen, we carry the challenging responsibility to create sustainable employment opportunities for 1600 women, and thus help children get a fair opportunity at primary education.

While studying Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, I got intrigued by human interaction within organizations. Foremost, human interaction in change projects that are often hard to predict. The effect of diversity, culture and internal politics provides a challenging context in which business and psychology are interchangeably connected. Clearly, I wanted to know more about this! As soon held the title of behavioural scientist, I chose a career in the field of Executive Search.

Which is a challenging field that continuously changes, and still provides new insights every day! Thanks to many inspiring conversations with professionals in board and senior management positions, I gained knowledge of and experience in the subject matter, Supply Chain and Logistics, and business management, organizations and (change) management. Combined with my psychological background, this turned into a unique perspective and a solid base for Executive Search and Business Coaching. In Business Coaching, I am focused on successful development of people and organization.

I have an entrepreneurial spirit, and I like to work together with people driven by ambition. In my personal life, I prefer to be out and about with friends and family. Together with them, I enjoy extensive dining and a good glass of wine!

In total, I hold over 35 years of experience in the international expedition and logistic sector, in various executive positions with leading companies. Since 1 January 2017, I stepped down from the position of Global CEO at GEFCO Forwarding, after completing the integration of IJS Global and GEFCO Overseas.

Throughout my career, I gained experience in the integration of European and worldwide transportation mediation organizations, and setting up new international companies. Within SCM Executives, my focus is on Strategic Consultancy as a senior advisor.

A passion that runs through my life like a common thread is equitation. I combined this passion with my role as consultant within SCM Executives, where I have been working for the last 7 years. Throughout these years, I learned the ins and outs of Logistics and Supply Chain.

Within my work, I strive for the best match between candidate and organization in an involved and trustworthy way. Getting drives and competencies of people out in the open is something I really like to do. With my strong organizational, process, and people skills, I help clients and candidates to make the right future career choices. I love the diversity in tasks within this field. My colleagues see me as a driven and client oriented colleague, who works with great effort and professionality.

My career started out in the travel business, for which I flew around the world. I made sure that the quality of the offered trips was guaranteed. After that, I joined a Full-Service Brand Activation agency, where I was responsible for People & Planning. I liked the dynamics of arranging big events a lot. Especially when everything came together and people were enjoying themselves.

Since 2016, I work with SCM Executives as Office Assistant. My continuous focus on the perfect service is again a key element in this role. The variety in projects and tasks appeals to me. Working in a small team, planning and coordination fit me like a glove: working hard with a healthy dose of humor is what matters to me.

The combination of psychology, organizations and helping people to shine, that is what I get energy from! I like to help people feel at ease at work, and through this in life. This all by clarifying and connecting what interests someone has or what skills/capabilities someone possesses. To realize this, I finished a degree in Applied Psychology. Right now, I am continuing my personal development in a Masters in Work and Organizational Psychology.

As Junior Consultant, I support our consultants in the search for the ideal candidate for clients, and many other areas within the recruitment process. Besides that, I contribute to projects on continuous renewal within SCM Executives. For example, in a research on assessments, digitalization and coaching.

Next to my job and studies, I enjoy traveling, listening to and making music, a good book, friends and family. Others describe me as engaged, proactive, process driven, punctual, and social.

Just after finishing the Work and Organizational Psychology Masters at the University of Amsterdam, I joined SCM Executives. Besides my theoretical knowledge on motivation, leadership and team development, I acquired relevant practical experience to be able to executive the role of Junior Consultant. For example in my research and advise based role in setting up an alumni network, and working in a team to stimulate a client orientation.

I am involved in the entire executive search process, from the 360° approach to the presentation of the final shortlist. To me, the exciting thing about work is having to switch between clients and candidates within various roles and disciplines. Connecting people and stimulating open discussion are important incentives for me. This is why I gained energy from successfully deploying collaboration between departments and teams. Within SCM, connecting people is translated into finding the right match between client and candidate. In my pastime, I sing, play the piano, and I am board member of the alumni association of Psychology at the University of Amsterdam.

At the moment, I study commercial economy at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (specialization: Digital Marketing). Besides my study, I work at SCM Executives, where I am responsible for the support department. I am concerned with data and thus the privacy of our candidates, I take care of optimizing the process, and support the team when necessary.

In the future, I would like to develop myself within the marketing world, and specialize in big data marketing. My study fits my activities at SCM Executives. I enjoy working within SCM Executives: a nice team, a good atmosphere, and it is ideal to combine with my studies.
