I studied General Economics for 1 year at the University of Groningen, completed the Higher Education in Economics and Administration/Management Economics and Law/Banking and Insurance at Hanze University of Applied Sciences at Groningen, followed by Business Studies with a concentration in Business Economics/corporate Finance at Radboud University in Nijmegen. I have been working at Marktlink since 2010. I chose Marktlink because of the freedom and responsibility you are given here right from the get-go, as well as the entrepreneurship that’s demanded of you. The work has exceeded my expectations and is really addictive. Every day I assist entrepreneurs with the purchase and sale of companies. It is challenging and exciting work, and no two days are the same. It’s work that matters, where emotions can come bubbling up. We are often buying or selling someone’s life’s work! Entrepreneurship, the confidence to take steps very quickly if you do the right things, and thinking in terms of opportunities – these are all hallmarks of Marktlink. It’s a pleasure to work every day with really ambitious and smart people who’ll do everything they can to make great and creative things happen for our clients.
I can enjoy every phase of a project, from bringing a fantastic potential client to the table and getting a potential buyer interested, to putting together a smart takeover construction and finally getting a great deal done and dusted. It has brought back many great memories. Which ones? Do you have a few minutes…?
