Best consultants

My Job

To give direction to our highly competent team on client servicing, strategic advice and engagement with policy makers.

My Experience

My career has been in consultancy and more specifically consultancy in financial services. I started off in Brussels in a small specialized consultancy, then moved to an international consultancy before starting Afore Consulting in 2007. I studied politics, history and economics at university before training as a merchant banker with ABN Amro in Hamburg which gave me a solid foundation for life in consultancy.

My Proudest Achievements

I have been privileged to contribute since the 1990’s to the single market in financial services and to working on making the Euro a success.

My Education

  • Master’s Degree, Politics, Economics and Modern History, Christian-Albrechts University, Kiel, Germany

  • PhD Studies, University of Limerick, Ireland and Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland

My Languages

German  and English.

My Interests outside work

With spending so much time at home over the past months, I have enjoyed catching up on reading. That said, I am looking forward to getting back to travelling, seeing family again and meeting people in person.

My Favourite Brussels anecdote

In our job we get to walk the corridors of Brussels. Over the years we have met with many individuals and larger than life characters who have been committed to shaping Europe and have been gracious with their time and efforts. To all of them, too many to mention individually, we are greatly indebted.
