After being graduated in Tax Law at Leiden University, I started my career as an international tax lawyer at a BIG4 firm in 1993. Subsequently, I joined a local Dutch bank where I provided tax support to both the bank’s corporate- and private clients. After that, I returned to the international corporate tax practice at another BIG4 firm. There I initially focused on the Financial Markets and Energy & Utilities sector before joining the M&A team to supervise reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions, including due diligence investigations.
In 2003 I became a partner at a Rotterdam based tax boutique specialized in assisting foreign investors/industries in starting up greenfield projects in the Netherlands and or other EU countries. Later on I also advised many Duch based corporate clients on the international tax implications of their cross-border business ventures, including the implementation of Transfer Pricing policies.
As per September 2021, I have started a new challenge with HVK Stevens as their Head of Tax Rotterdam. Here I will be contributing to the expansion of their international tax practice.
