Professional Summary

In November 2020 I joined Colliers as Director Business Development. In this role I am responsible for the contacts and relationships with the investors of real estate in Rotterdam, The Hague and surroundings. My focus is on the Agency department including all  leasing, purchase and sale activities. However Asset Services,  Design and (re)Development  or any other business lines providing services or solutions for real estate issues will  have my full attention.

A two years period as Managing Director of Groot Handelsgebouw in Rotterdam,  the largest monumental building of  The Netherlands consisting of 120,000 s.qm LFA and housing over 450 companies,  brought many challenges during the period Sep 2018- Oct 2020. The daily management of the team (10 people) and being responsible for the asset as well as the property management  brought all my real estate experience together in one role. 

Prior to working on the investor side I worked as an advisor at JLL. After several years working as  property manager, I switched in 2006 to the Agency department of JLL in Rotterdam of which I became head of the Agency department in Rotterdam in 2015.  My main responsibilities exsisted of advising corporates, developers, occupiers and investors of real estate on diverse complex real estate issues in Rotterdam, The Hague and surroundings. Advise on leasing, disposal, buying or renegotiating of contracts were key drivers in my job. 


During the period I was Managing Director of Groot Handelsgebouw, the building has been sold within 1.5 years with an added value of 120 million euro. I am proud to have been part of this huge transaction and to have been able to add value by increasing rents an pro-actively renegotiate contracts.

Renegotiating lease contract of Unilever for Weena 455 (22,000 s.qm LFA) on behalf of tenant.

Leasing head quarters to Coolblue in Central Plaza in Rotterdam (8,000 sq.m LFA) on behalf of the landlord.
