With his broad experience and expertise in the financial sector, Stephan is the right person to tackle the challenges surrounding the introduction of the New Pension Contract. Due to the interesting combination of roles as supervisor and consultant, Stephan has a very broad view on the developments in the pension sector.
Stephan started his career as a marketer, including as a marketing director and as a consultant. He always worked at the intersection of marketing, sales, communication and technology. In doing so, he closely followed developments in digitalization and data science. He soon ended up in Finance, first in the insurance corner and later in the pension sector. (NVS, AIG, E&Y Consulting). At Atos Consulting, as a partner, he became responsible for insurance and pensions. There he carried out scenario analyses to predict how the market would develop, both for life and pension insurers and pension funds and administrators. After this, he was responsible for Sia Partners' Financial Services Practice in the Netherlands and Belgium. Later, as he took on more and more supervisory roles (AEGON PPI, AEGON Capital, Pensioenfonds SABIC, Pensioenfonds Capgemini Nederland), to avoid conflicts of interest, he started working as an independent consultant.
After working hours, Stephan likes to meet up with friends and enjoys traveling and sports. He is also a member of the Supervisory Board of Museum Speelklok in Utrecht.
