For companies to remain in business, they need to have a long-term strategy in place that includes the embedding of the EU. I support them in defining and implementing the right EU strategy and accompanying organisational structure.
I have been a Managing Partner at Publyon Brussels since 2016. I oversee the strategy of the company, ensuring an adaptive structure, always looking for new ways to expand the service offering, and with an eye for individual growth.
I have over 17 years of experience in European public affairs and related organisational management and advise clients on defining and implementing EU strategies and corporate governance structures.
In 2022, I completed the supervisory board programme at Nyenrode Business University with a thesis on “How supervisory boards can facilitate the transition to a new sustainable economic business model.”
My Proudest Achievements
I have built a successful consultancy in EU Public Affairs that has 20 international professionals in the areas of transport, digital & tech, and circular economy. I am eager to attract talented people and motivate them to further develop themselves.

My Interests outside work

My Favourite Brussels anecdote
During COVID-19 I led and supported Publyon’s international and ambitious team through challenging circumstances. The Commission worked at full force on recovery measures, our clients deserved our full attention and our employees had to maneuver the EU institutional arena while working from home, including myself, home schooling two kids and feeding a baby between calls. A healthy work-life balance is a key for success and for sure a main priority I will pursue for myself and the Publyon team. I hope to be able to lead by example and let my team and clients grow and flourish.
