Being half Dutch and half Spanish is probably the best way to define me. Raised in The Netherlands, in Amsterdam to be precise, I moved to Madrid in 2020 for personal reasons.
My former employer, the Dutch embassy in Madrid, offered me a position at the economic and agricultural department of the embassy to actively strengthen the bilateral Dutch-Spanish economic relations. There I worked with Dutch companies with ambition to enter and grow in the Spanish market. After two years I decided to follow my headhunting/HR ambitions. I realized that my natural curiosity for people, their background, their ambitions and future endeavors were impossible to ignore. After working in the executive search business in Amsterdam, I already touched upon this field in a professional way.
Now, at Ariad I love that I can take that experience to another level, helping Ariad to expand the business to the Salesforce Marketing Cloud specialty. I get to combine my passion for people and their stories with my corporate experience on a journey towards the future.
