“Since the first time I visited Indonesia ten years ago it has a special place in my heart. I am impressed by the positive and entrepreneurial spirit of the people as well as the business focus of government.


The last years I have had the privilege to set up a company in Indonesia for Wavin. With a focus on building healthy sustainable environments, we have products that can provide the people access to safe drinking water, healthy sanitation and reduce risk of flooding. For this it is crucial to work with different stakeholders on governmental level as well as in the private sector.


With a legacy in Indonesia and a long history with water management I hope to play a role as linking pin between the Dutch business sector and expertise and further Indonesian development. I am proud that with my role as board member and treasurer of the INS I can provide a modest contribution.”
