Being an alumnus of the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (BSc Business Administration and MSc Finance), I feel strongly connected with the city and its entrepreneurial spirit. In my role as Business Manager at Fit Professionalsof Finance I help organizations with financial (interim) solutions. Supporting and guiding enthusiastic and ambitious entrepreneurs is extremely rewarding. Being the financial sounding board and business partner makes room for the creative minds of the entrepeneurs to change the world.
