"After successfully completing a Mathematics and Computer Science degree, I held various managerial positions at Volmac/Cap Gemini. In 2000, I joined PGGM and took on two IT functions, Application Development Manager and Infrastructure and Production Manager. In 2003, I was appointed Director of Pension Operations and subsequently Director of Operations. On 1 January 2010, I was appointed COO, my current position. In addition to my work, I delight in spending time with my children and partner; I also enjoy reading, cycling (on a racing bike), running and culture."
