Femke Spijkers

Femke Spijkers has completed her Master’s degree in Finance at Tilburg University. Her thesis research focused on the relationship between family firms and firm performance during the COVID-19 crisis in comparison to non-family firms. During her graduation phase Femke worked at Catapult two days a week. This way, she could discover what it is like to work on merger and acquisition projects and where her interests lie. This worked out so well that after graduation, she joined the Catapult team full-time as a Junior Business Analyst.

Analytical and accurate

As an analyst, Femke supports both the transition and transaction team in analyzing businesses. With her analytical skills, precision and well-organized approach, she is a valuable addition to Catapult and its clients.

Developing and learning

Femke works with the team on a variety of projects. From buy and sell side mandates to restructuring projects. The diversity in projects and working together with colleagues is what Femke likes about working at Catapult. Within the small organization with short lines of communication, there are sufficient development opportunities on both a professional and personal level.
