As of 1 February, Public Matters has welcomed two new colleagues: Sheraz Joemmanbaks is our new Specialist Finance & Control, and Paul Schrama has started as Account Executive.
Sheraz has over 25 years of experience in the financial sector. For 12 years, he has worked as a finance manager at Staffing Management Services BV, which was acquired by Headfirst Group in 2018. He was then financial manager at Compagnon B.V.
Sheraz will be responsible for financial administration at Public Matters, supporting management with financial reports and analysis.
Paul got his master’s degree in Public Sector Management with a specialisation in Public Affairs from Leiden University, and wrote his thesis on lobbying regulation and the lobby register in the Netherlands. He previously gained experience in public affairs at the Dutch Startup Association and as a trainee at Public Matters.
Paul will focus mainly on tech and sustainability issues at Public Matters.
2023 is off to a busy start in The Hague and Brussels, and we are therefore very happy with our new colleagues. We wish them all the best in their new roles!
