Director Business Development
In November 2020 I joined Colliers as Director Business Development.

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.
In November 2020 I completed my master's degree in Tax Law at Erasmus University of Rotterdam. During my studies I worked as a 'trainee' at a law firm and a tax consultancy office. After completing my master's degree in Tax Law, I started to orientate myself on the Rotterdam real estate market and I ended up at Colliers.
That is why I joined Colliers as a real estate advisor . In this role I am responsible for the rental or sale of commercial real estate in the greater region of South-Holland.
