Most memorable case?
‘There are at least two. I once seized, on behalf of the owner, an aircraft full of passengers that had landed at Schiphol Airport, where preparation in particular was the key to the ultimate success. That was exciting, though, because the stakes were high and proper timing and cooperation with all involved was crucial. I also found the entire negotiation process in the acquisition of the YouTube channel StukTV by Talpa an interesting experience. It was special to properly guide such successful young entrepreneurs through these negotiations. In the end both parties were very satisfied with the result and that to me is a satisfying result.’
