CFO of OptioPay
I started my career in the old economy and worked my way up to CPA and Corporate Restructuring to mid-market Finance Director. After that I held roles as a CFO in various industries moving on to Private Equity-backed large cap businesses, most recently in the #1 Insurance Software vendor globally, where I entered the Dutch operation as a CFOO and one and a half year later CEO. After having spent three and a half year in that company I decided to move on and I was focussed on moving to co-running one of Europe’s top FinTechs as a CFO. That is what brought me to Optiopay!
