OUR STORY

We started Connective Payments in 2014 because of our joint passion for payments and helping companies in the payments value chain create value for their business. We are “Connective” because we bring together the right expertise to help our customers grow and we leverage our network to help shape alliances and create fruitful customer and vendor relationships.

We are pleased to see that our approach of co-creation is working well to bring success to the organizations we serve. We act as team players and we leverage our industry knowledge within our customer’s team.

The story of Connective Payments is still evolving rapidly as we venture deeper into the payments value chain and use our expertise to help scale-ups grow and steer them in the right direction, as well as allowing established names to excel at operations and improve profitability and customer satisfaction.

I experienced the true Connective Payments value of knowledge, expertise and network to make a business more successful, from a client perspective. My working relation with them was so professional and fruitful, that I decided to join this group of talented experts. I brought with me the strength to connect people from various backgrounds and disciplines in the field of Sales, IT and Operations. My experience lies in strategic analysis, planning & design of projects, leading to execution.

Throughout my career, I have managed small professional teams as well as large international multicultural teams. My view is innovative and non-conformist, enlightened by an international track record in a broad spectrum of operational, financial and project activities. My work always results in practical solutions with client’s needs as top priority.

After having worked at various leading companies in the banking and payments sector, I decided to join Connective Payments as an Associate Partner because of the shared in-depth knowledge of the payment profession, the no-nonsense mentality and the strong motivation to help customers define – and realize – their strategy.

Leveraging more than 30 years of extensive experience in various (interim) management, supervisory and executive positions at banks and payments service providers, I have gained a deep understanding of the complex interrelationships of the payments ecosystem, where business, technology and legal knowledge converge. It is my passion to help companies make the right strategic decisions and to structure and grow their payments business. During my career I have deepened my skills in collaboration and stakeholder management, capabilities that are particularly important in, for example, a dynamic family business environment. Dealing with ever-changing compliance laws and regulations and managing relationships with regulators are part of my professional DNA.

As a senior project manager and consultant in the Payments industry, I have contributed to the development of new payment- and acquiring services for several organizations. During this period, I gained a deep understanding of the payments industry and built up an extensive network of relationships.

Clients trust me with translating their business needs into valuable and innovative solutions. Consequently, I will also take responsibility to implement these recommended solutions. During implementation I will emphasize on acceptation by the organization.

Personal style: thorough analyses combined with an eye for the big picture. At ease in complex environments. Self-starter with independent mind. Focusing on feasible solutions with sufficient internal support, organizationally sensitive and good stakeholder management.

Educated as an Industrial Engineer at the University of Eindhoven. Graduated on the Management of Innovation Processes.

A topic which has kept my attention ever since I started my career as a Management Consultant at KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

A position as Product Manager at Equens later on, was my introduction to the payments industry. I loved it but wanted to do more than supporting the Equens proposition. So, I positioned myself as an independent contractor. Now working with the Connective Payments Team.

Clients value my abilities to design and implement new services and processes. Not only on the supply side of the payments arena with companies such as Equens, ING, Credit Agricole, VISA and van Lanschot Bank. Also, on the demand side with Landal Greenparks, Holland Casino and KPN. Enhancing customer experiences, lower the cost of processes and getting a better grip on risks.

I like to co-create and implement. Having worked for 30+ years in the payments industry, I have gained a deep expertise and an intensive international network. I worked in several roles at multiple companies of various sizes, as an individual as well as a team leader, both as employee and contractor, on the business as well as IT side, or in between.

I am result driven, perseverant, pragmatic, with a good sense of humour, strong communication skills, a sense of political environments, and always eager to learn. I am therefore able to create / co-create value and to implement new functionalities / product propositions. Working for Connective Payments with business partners who share the same values but different expertise, is absolutely great.

In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music (visit pinkpop.nl!), watching soccer, traveling, dining in a good restaurant, and spending time with my family.

I am an experienced director in the field of financial institutions and often work as a director but also as a Business Architect specialized in payment systems. My strength lies in the combination of knowledge in Regulatory, IT and Business areas, which I have acquired over the past 25+ years in many industries in both IT and management fields. I am available as an interim director and supervisory director at Payment and Electronic Money Institutions. I also like to take on greenfield or large renovation projects as a Business Architect or Program / Interim Manager.

I joined Connective Payments as an associate, assisting in multiple projects and roles. I bring 15 years of executive experience to the table at various financial institutions. In this role I always state that you can only act as an executive 20-40% of your time; for the rest you have to work like anyone else. In that light I developed myself in the areas of IT, Regulatory and Business. I act as a trusted advisor, business architect or Project Manager in the Retail Payments space with a preference for greenfield or large renovation projects. Next to projects I am also available as Interim or Supervisory board director at Payment and Electronic Money Institutes.
