“I find most joy in being involved in the strategic development of a company over a longer period of time and help the client or PE reach their strategic goals through various transactions. This is often most effective when there is room for open and clear communication. This independent and long-term oriented approach distinguishes PhiDelphi from other advisors. In addition, a collaboration with our successful and elaborate international network allows us to offer our clients access to all possible international buyers or acquisition possibilities.”
Willem has studied Economics at the University of Amsterdam and holds an MBA with a specialisation in Finance and Strategy from London Business School.
