Head of Jumbo Tech Campus

2017 - present, Currently I work at Jumbo. Jumbo is the second largest supermarket chain in the Netherlands. This is true for the physical shops, but not for online shopping. We want to change that and therefore we are building a Tech Campus. This department is fully focussed on building the perfect online shopping experience for our customers to make sure we grow a lot in this area. Our goal is to become the biggest online food retailer in a few years. logo

STIP logo

Member of the city council of Delft for STIP

1993-1996. STIP is short for for Technical Students in Politics (Studenten Techniek In Politiek in Dutch). In 1993 we founded this party in Delft. The goal was to change the way the political parties treated the students in this city by joining the city council.
This proved to be a very succesfull initiative. We campaigned and got elected in the city council of Delft. I was the second member of the council for STIP in 1994 and 1995. This was the start of a very succesfull political party. The party grew bigger and bigger and is a very serious member of the city council in Delft nowadays.
