Personally I believe that everyone you’ll ever meet knows something you don’t. That’s why I decided to join the Dutch Chamber of Commerce when I moved to Stockholm together with my wife last summer.
As a person I am passionate about travelling, food and retail. In my last job as Head of Operations I was responsible for 66 supermarkets at Vomar, a Dutch supermarket chain. My primary responsibility was to lead the expansion and conversion of the formula, manage the day to day operations and strengthen our existing market.
None of the above could have been achieved without my network. Making connections has always been one of my top priorities and I find it stimulating to go out in de field and put words into action. That’s why I’m excited to be assigned as the new Regional Director of the Dutch Chamber in Stockholm. I look forward to make a positive contribution to our region together with Stefanie.

Stefanie Brinkman: “Every interaction is an opportunity to learn”.
As an entrepreneur myself, I have experienced the great value of building and maintaining a network. From both a personal and business perspective it can be truly refreshing to meet others who show you a different perspective on reality. I have learned and moreover enjoyed ‘the unexpected to happen’ especially being inspired by people with different backgrounds and experiences.
Since I have always been highly driven by the development of people and teams in organizations, I started my own organizational development company 7 years ago. As a change facilitator I have supported many management teams and their employees in being successful in their strategy deployment. During the years I developed myself more in human interactions which made me focus on training and coaching in personal leadership and team development.
In the beginning of November, I moved to Stockholm together with my boyfriend Rob van Brunschot. As a naturally curious women and open to one’s personal drive and motivation, I was looking forward starting this new adventure. With a smooth start I am grateful for the many interesting and caring people I already have met. And again ‘the unexpected happened’: the Dutch Chamber of Commerce came across. I am honored and excited to be assigned as Regional Director of the Dutch Chamber in Stockholm together with Bart. This will be a beautiful chance to contribute to many more valuable interactions and connections.
