Dertje is a driven entrepreneur/manager with an eye for innovation, sustainability, and results. She prefers to work in an international, technical, complex environment and successfully organizes innovation and change.

For her, trust, inspiration, fun, and relatability go hand in hand with a demanding approach and perseverance.
Dertje worked for Fokker and Schiphol Airport, and was CEO of Port of Amsterdam and Pathé Nederland. Partly because of her efforts, the IJmuiden sea lock, the largest in the world, came about, crucial for the continuity of the strong position of the Amsterdam port.
