What motivates you?
The conviction that business between people, done rightly, benefits all stakeholders in a wider ecosystem. This includes owners, employees, customers and the wider population. Therefore, helping business to grow and thrive is a great way to contribute to society.
What brought you to this job?
As a teenager, I did an apprenticeship to understand how the (mechanical) things work. During my undergraduate in business management, I started to scratch the surface of how business, economics and finance work. Anything from this world has become a passion of mine and I developed further in that space through multiple roles in consulting. Private equity lets me combine my genuine interests in these fields with my love for in-depth analysis of fields with limited amount of available information.
What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
My father shared with me a good motto to life by: never expect anything from somebody else that you cannot live up to yourself.
