So far, I have spent all my working life with consultancies – in the Netherlands and abroad. At Vintura I now concentrate mainly upon e-commerce, procurement, and supply chain management for the pharmaceutical industry. The bigger picture – keeping healthcare affordable – really appeals to me, too, as does project-based work for a variety of clients.
My consultancy background is wide-ranging, from strategic and organizational issues to long, intensive change processes and short “pressure-cooker” feasibility studies. On the pharmacy side, most of my experience is in market access.
Collaboration and interaction, with clients and colleagues alike, greatly satisfy me. In my work, I seek out pragmatic solutions as far as possible. Something the client can pick up and run with straight away. I bring calm and structure to the process, and I try to gather the right know-how from the people around me to reach a usable result.
I love effort and relaxation. In my free time I enjoy playing tennis, and in the winter you’ll often find me on skates or skis. Apart from that, I like visiting art fairs and galleries, exploring lesser-known places, and listening to obscure bands. But give me Saturday’s newspaper and a perfect espresso and you’re giving me the perfect day off!
