Since 2019 I joined the executive search firm Holtop Ravesloot in Amsterdam as partner. I started my career here, about 20 years ago as a research consultant. I left to spread my wings, I worked in different positions and industries. Within the firm I specialize in female leadership and diversity; making a creative match not only based on past experience but also looking at the person and their aspirations, skills and fututre capacities.

I am curious by nature in the past, present, and future; that is why I studied history at the University of Brussels and later in my career signed up for an MBA specializing in strategic marketing.

Within these 20 years I have worked in several commercial positions within the Randstad Group. In my last position as International Business Development Manager, I had a global responsibility identifying, assessing, and developing new business opportunities. With that experience in the international field of business. After that I made a career move to higher education. For six years I was the director of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. I was member of the Executive Board of IFFTI and I also serve as Chair of the Education Committee for the International Apparel Federation.

I am married, we have two children and a dog. I love to travel, see and explore new cultures, and like to go to a good concert!
