I'm an independent women, born and raised in The Hague. My roots lie both in the Netherlands as in Indonesia as the eldest daughter of an Indonesian father and a Dutch mother.


I have worked in the financial services since 1995, both at insurance companies and banks as a leader in marketing & sales and HR divisions.


As a leader I am excellent in building long term strategies in a profit organization, where change and transformation are needed. But most of all I challenge people to explore and use their potential! Just by starting who you are and what you can offer the world. 

  • Strategic and servant leadership

  • Change management strategy (people and organization);

  • Building high performing teams in transition;

  • Board collaboration, dynamics and coaching.


In non-executive roles I advise start- and scale ups in HR-tech and Fin-tech-companies.


People know me as both a critical challenger who inspires people to give their best by using their talent at the most: No act, just be and C.


Since 2018 I’m chairman of the board of WIFS, Women in Financial Services NL. Our goal is to bring more balance to build a sustainable inclusiveness business, especially when it comes to the balance of masculine and feminine values.


I have studied economics in Rotterdam, followed an MBA Culture & Innovation and am an alumna of Harvard Business School.


I am married to Richard and we have 3 wonderful boys, Jay Dean & Glenn.

The only limitation in life is our thinking, because I strongly believe if you can dream it, you can create and build it!
