‘If everything seems under control, you’re simply not going fast enough’

Ambitious, driven, optimist, puns, energic and enthusiatic! That is who I am in a nutshell.

I like to help the people around me and look at everything in a positive way. A typical optimist.  But also social. In today’s world, where social media and whatsapp occupie a big part of our day, it’s a fact that contact between two or more persons has taken on a new dimension. Customer contact, that is from high value at Pieterman, is also changing. My interest lies with finding the right mix between online and offline. Nowadays we can communicate much faster with eachother, but it just misses that important dimension ‘real emotion’. I believe in this because real emotion is required to come closer together and bypass the digital wall.

My passions are travelling, car sports and running. Traveling is something beautiful. Discover countries, mixing yourself in totally unknown populations and organizing, experiencing a trip all by myself. Carsports is a passion I’ve had for a long time. In my college days I even took the opportunity to develop the first all-electric racing car with a team of students. An experience that nobody can take from me. Besides that I also have a big passion for sport. My big dream? The New York marathon under 3 hours. Where there is a will, there is a way.

Let’s inspire eachother!
