Family of four with two kids: Olivier (12) and Dauphine (11).
We live in the suburbs of Amsterdam, where I manage the Dutch office of Heidrick and Struggles, a US stock market listed consulting company (Nasdaq: HSII) since 2006. Before that I worked 10 years with Philips Electronics.
Our family likes to travel, and we have been to many places in Europe, Asia and the US (East Coast) in recent years.
Also professionally I have travelled extensively, through most countries in Europe, to China, Japan and Indonesia and to at least a dozen locations in the US.
We have been expats for 8 years in Germany, Belgium and France, but are now back in our home country the Netherlands.
When not working, I am an avid sailor, and we have a small 21ft sports sailing boat, which we use for both private trips and regatta sailing.
Our children play field hockey and tennis, and my wife Eveline is a very experienced horseback rider. I do a lot of running, and used to do a lot of rowing too.
We are addicted to Netflix which helps us "survive" the dark winter months here in the Netherlands; we have finished all five seasons of Breaking Bad, 3x Homeland and are now watching House of Cards 2.
Our motto is: "always be prepared for the unexpected things that life has to bring"
