On 1 July 2022 Marloes Telgenhof will start as Senior Director at Public Matters. With her extensive experience in business and government – at different policy levels (Brussels, The Hague, provinces and municipalities) – Marloes is a very welcome reinforcement for the Public Matters Team.
Among other things, Marloes worked at the Association FME, the employers’ organization for the technology industry, where she was a program manager for the energy transition in the maritime sector on and around the Wadden Sea. She also contributed to the digitization of the (manufacturing) industry in the Northern Netherlands through the Digital Innovation Hub.
From 2001 to 2011 she held various positions with the central government, including at the Permanent Representation in Brussels, where she focused on research and innovation policy. After that she was responsible for European Affairs and lobbying at Fokker Technologies, Damen Shipyards and trade organization Netherlands Maritime Technology (NMT). She also worked for years as a senior management consultant in the municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
Innovation is the thread that runs through her career: “Innovation in the broadest sense of the word in the ever-changing interaction between market and government – and especially the role of innovation in solving today’s challenges in many sectors – is something that makes my heart beat faster. The business community, government, knowledge institutes and social organizations need each other very much. It is at that intersection that I operate best: connecting, challenging, innovating and making progress together.”
Welcome to Public Matters Marloes! We wish you a lot of success!
