Innovation Manager at Rabobank

Startupbootcamp FinTech London Mentor

My whole career has been about developing the business, taking it to the next level. Through my study I learned how to use my creative and analytical skills to quickly adapt to new businesses. After graduating from the International Hotelschool of The Hague, I started my career as a business development manager at AQ services International. A Mystery Shopping organization that grew from one office and four employees in the Netherlands to an international company with offices in Europe and Asia and over 70 employees within six years. In 2008 I started at Rabobank where I was an advisor to the corporate cash management sales team. Currently I am working within the team of Strategy & Innovation. My primary focus is to develop a long term strategy for the bank, connect to innovative ecosystems outside of the bank and internalize innovation within the bank.
