Managing Partner

I’m driven to go the extra mile to help organisations that want to influence policy or public perceptions. I offer support in both public and behind-the-scenes contacts with government, politicians, civil-society partners and the media. Thanks to my background, I have a special affinity with the lobbying activities of sectoral associations.


I live with my wife and two daughters in picturesque Delft. In my spare time I like to read and write about developments in my field. I also get an enormous energy boost from swimming and mountain biking.
