After gaining a BA in Chemical Engineering and a Masters in Economics, I developed myself in industrial marketing. In 1999 my husband and I took over Metaglas from my father. Metaglas is an innovative glass-metal construction company, which is specialized in slim façade elements and interior solutions for housing, buildings and the shipping industry. Maximum transparency is the base of all our products. We design, construct and mount aluminium windows and doors, glass doors and constructions, secondary glazing and balcony glazing. We are able to translate wishes of architects and project developers into transparent designed constructions.
Social involvement is important to me, which is why Metaglas is offering (young) disabled people, long-term unemployed, women returners, students and school leavers a platform to get the best out of themselves by giving them a job, education or traineeship. To support female entrepreneurship, I am on the advisory board of Sisterhood in Business. I have served as a city councillor in Tiel. Currently I am a commissioner at the Rabobank West Betuwe and supervisor at ROCRivor.
