Three new colleagues join Public Matters team


Recently, three new colleagues have joined the Public Matters team – Siri de Vrijer, Eef Brands and Anita Schmale. Siri and Eef start as Junior Consultants and Anita starts as Consultant.

Siri previously worked as a strategic advisor at consultancy firm &MAES, and is chairperson of the alumni board of the National Think Tank Foundation. She has a combined master’s degree in European History at the University of Leiden, Paris-Sorbonne & Oxford. Because of her affinity with technological advancements and innovation, Siri has a focus on the platform economy.

Eef has gained experience in public affairs at the Consumers’ Association. In addition, she was full-time vice-chair of the VIDIUS student union in Utrecht for a year. Here she also completed her master’s degree in History of Politics and Society. At Public Matters, she will support clients in various sectors, with a focus on infrastructure and mobility.

Anita has gained a lot of experience at the Nederlands Debat Instituut in strategic communication and advising on important meetings with stakeholders. She is also chairperson of pop venue De Helling. She has a background in American Studies and obtained her master’s degree from Utrecht University. She is a true generalist and uses her broad knowledge at Public Matters to advise and advance various clients.

In the middle of a very busy election year we are very happy with this necessary expansion of our Team and we wish Siri, Eef and Anita all the best!

Welcome Siri, Eef and Anita!
