Personal queries

I love competition. Things quickly get boring for me if I can’t spar with others. But I don’t take things too seriously. On the contrary. I love to laugh. Ambition alone is not enough. Winners need to be self-confident and put people at ease.

That’s the SMP approach as well. When clients lose their composure in a crisis, we step in and guide our clients back onto the winning track. It takes discipline and stamina – and a lot of spirit.

Which challenges appeal to you especially?​
Any challenge that challenges me physically and helps my spirit to grow.

Your favourite pass-time after a successful day at work?​
A laid-back round of golf with my friends.

How do you recharge your batteries?​
Working on challenging projects for my clients or spending time with the family.

What was your biggest achievement at SMP?​
Becoming self-employed. And working hard to be successful ever since.

Which personal possession would you hate to give away?​
My Rescue wood.

Your motto in life?​
Life is a roller coaster – you just gotta ride it!

With reliability, a zest for life and positive energy.
