By performing several tasks in Shared Service Centres in The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium I was able to pick up an all-round administrative and financial experience.

During these years I have performed as Manager Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable and Banking and also coordinating a large international Back-Office team which was responsible for contract management and billing.
Renewal and efficiency improvements based upon kpi-reporting, process descriptions and migrations were main targets and sometimes dealt with on a daily basis. All were of course within the AO/IC or SOX guidelines and regulations.
My teams varied from 8 till 24 fte suited in national and/or international Shared Service Centers.

I am straight forward and communicate clear about what I expect and the results that have to be created.
”Self managing teams” is what I am trying to bring into practice as much as possible. In my vision it creates space for flexibility and stimulates personal development of the employees.
Not everything has to be on a leach because people are perfectly capable of thinking on their own, responding and bringing on ideas.

Managing and coaching existing teams or (re-)building new departments is one of my strengths. Besides the necessary knowledge and “out of the box”-thinking, I’m very driving to create extraordinary results.

At this moment I’m working as a self employed entrepreneur (freelancer)and would gladly like to introduce myself in person.
