After I studied fiscal law I started working for the Dutch IRS. In 1992 I decided to cross over to the “other side” and started as a tax lawyer at Deloitte. My main focus areas were Mid Market and larger entities, with a nice mix of family owned and corporates. I had and have the privilege to work with magnificent clients. In 2004 I was appointed as a member of the MT Tax, later becoming the CFO of Tax and was responsible for regional markets and Tax Management Consulting. At the beginning of 2012, I became the managing partner of Tax & Legal and member of the Executive Board, the Global Tax & Legal Executive, EMEA and NWE T&L Executive.
In 2017 I was appointed Global Tax Controversy Leader and became Innovation Lead for Deloitte NL and member of the NWE Innovation Executive. In June 2018 I got the opportunity to start as the COO of Risk Advisory within Deloitte NL. A role which I do next to my Innovation roles. Still very happy to do some client work too!
