GOLF HANDICAP 17

I AM Driven and caring. I believe that if you really want to accomplish something, you’ll go all out to make it happen.

I HAVE An analytical and critical mind.

I LIKE Being in a position to make things happen.

RESPONSIBILITIES Development and implementation of (complex) financial, legal and tax structures and investor relations.

BEST WORK MOMENT I thrive on doing the complex, last-minute work around a transaction.

MOST CHALLENGING WORK MOMENT Dealing with lengthy non-core discussions around the table, rather than trying to accomplish what is really needed.

SALVADOR DALI IS My favourite artist – without a doubt. You think you know what it is you’re looking at but…

GOLF vs HOCKEY Golf is a game that you play with friends – yet you’re playing against yourself. It’s a very mental game: it’s up to you whether you cheat or not. A round takes about four hours so you get to know people you’re with and it’s great to be outdoors. More importantly, however, you get to know yourself. It requires a lot of patience which can be very challenging. Hockey, on the other hand is a team game, it’s much faster, and you all have to work together. I like both.

LIFE’S TOO SHORT FOR Bad wine.

I ADMIRE Winston Churchill: Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
