As a freelance consultant I support companies to develop and implement sustainable strategies.


After over 30 years experience, the red thread in my career has always been long term value creation. My expertise was born out of numerous leadership roles during a vast career at IDH, The Sustainable Trade Initiative, as CEO in various Philips Electronics businesses and through extensive travels throughout the World uniting divers stakeholders (political entities, NGO's and multinationals) for a common sustainable goal. 

How can I help your sustainable goal? 


"In  2009 I realised that only with a Collective Leadership effort of front running companies could the devastating side effects of unbridled economic growth be bent to Sustainable Development in service of People, Planet and Profit. This belief has guided my career since then. My vision on Sustainability can be focused on 3 main points:  (1) Redefining a company's value proposition, (2) Re-directing resources to sustainable development and (3) Rethinking Western consumption habits and approaches."
