Experienced crisis manager
Since then he has bought and sold several companies, set up factories abroad, innovated products and processes and entered new markets. He gained his most valuable experience during the Global Financial Crisis, when his own companies went through extremely turbulent times. This unique experience makes him a sought-after advisor for entrepreneurs and managers facing similar challenges.
Boudewijn has over twentyfive years’ experience working with companies facing challenges; he knows the ropes and has a track record as an energetic interim director dealing with critical situations. As a consultant he combines his unique experience with a sound knowledge of operational, financial and commercial management. He spends a large part of his time as a restructuring officer or turnaround manager. He is a Certified Turnaround Professional (CTP) and member of the European Association of Certified Turnaround Professionals (EACTP). Boudewijn is a WHOA Restructuring Specialist since he completed a post-graduate course at the Leiden Law School of Leiden University. WHOA is the Dutch acronym for the Dutch Act on Court Confirmation of Extrajudicial Restructuring Plans.
