‘For me running is a way of life, and yet I have never regretted my choice to work for Van Oers. After completing my studies in business economics at the HEAO in Breda, I joined Van Oers as an assistant accountant. I immediately continued my studies by taking the evening Accounting course the HEAO. As a result of my own attitude and the space that Van Oers offers, I was able to grow from an assistant accountant to a director/major co- shareholder.
I specialise in franchise formulas and director/major shareholder issues at family companies. In terms of franchising, McDonald´s® is an excellent reference for our firm. We provide accounting and tax services to a large number of McDonald´s® branches, which makes us the market leader in the Netherlands. In addition, I focus on Van Oers’s IT strategy and we have developed an online service concept for clients. Developing such strategies and accomplishing innovation; that is in keeping with the performance-oriented drivenness that I carry with me from running.’
