Together with my colleagues, Mirza Husic and Ferry Smit, I manage FMI BV's administration. How that came about makes for a nice story! I had worked for 10 years in various positions at energy supplier Eneco. At the time, I was training a group of juniors at the local football club in a team including both my son and Mirza’s. One thing led to another, and I made a transfer ;-) from a multinational to the FMI team, from large-scale to small-scale.
And quite frankly, I really find it energising. Functions needing to be put into practice in different departments in a large company are part of our portfolio. This includes everything you can think of relating to administration - mail-invoicing-payment processing etc. I really appreciate the variety; it challenges and makes us true 'all-rounders'.
The FMI motto "Healthy Fruit for Happy People" appeals to me. Fruit is a beautiful and healthy product that FMI helps to market. The atmosphere in the team is personal, and it is not just about numbers. I believe in a healthy balance between private and professional life so that at work we can be Healthy & Happy!
