More about my background and my career
My career started at KPMG, where I spent 6 great years and after finishing the post-master CPA (Registered Accountant) course, I started at Novamedia. Novamedia is known for the Nationale Postcode-, BankGiro- and VriendenLoterij where I had several roles. During my time at Novamedia, I grew from controller to Head of Finance, to CFO within a span of ten years.
Next to my passion for numbers and finance, I’ve always had a passion for people and culture. I’ve always strived to make a positive impact on the work culture in the organizations I’ve worked at.
During my time at Novamedia I was responsible for finance, risk management, HR, and ESG/sustainability. I’ve always been driven to develop my skill set and to stay curious, which is the mindset I’ve continued to pursue throughout my career. Not just my curiosity and drive factors in my growth, but creating a positive impact for others around me has also driven me into becoming CFO.
Afterward, I became CFO at MediaMonks, an international marketing and advertising agency, where I was globally responsible for finance, the integration of acquisitions, HR, and the legal departments. I also supervised the development and implementation of the international ESG strategy for S4Capital.
In 2021, I started Liobé. As an expert in the field of finance, I wanted to create more impact for smaller organizations. Since the start of Liobé, I’ve been involved with multiple start-ups, and I’ve been able to advise said organizations whilst seeing them grow their potential. In 2022 I decided to expand on this and I also joined FEM-START, an organization that focuses on female entrepreneurs and supports them in their education, funding, and mentoring.
Next to my work as a CFO, I’ve always wanted to use my knowledge and skills in another way. In 2019 I found this by combining my passion for numbers, people, and culture in board positions on multiple Supervisory Boards mentioned below. Since December 2022 I am part of the Continuity Foundation of Novamedia.
Dutch Film Fund
Since 2019 I’m an active member of the Supervisory Board and chairwoman of the Audit Committee of the Dutch Film Fund.
Amsterdam UMC Foundation
Since May 2023 I became a member of the Supervisory Board of the fundraising institution of the Amsterdam UMC. The fundraising institution is a result of the fusion of the VU Fund and the AMC Foundation on the 1st of January 2023.
