“Beginnen als PMO’er bij Nouryon om IT-projecten te ondersteunen was al gaaf en leerzaam. Vervolgens doorgroeien om als jr. projectleider een bijdrage te leveren aan de nieuwe strategie van Nouryon door nieuwe organisatiestructuren te laten reflecteren in diverse applicaties maakt het helemaal af.”
