Career summary


Since 2010 I have been trading commodities / energy. I am experienced in trading european continental power and gas. With full understanding of the fundamental dynamics within each country and how they interact across the continent. I managed power portfolio's from day-ahead up to balance of year. Actively trading spark-spreads for a gas fired power plant and intra-month asset optimization. Proprietary trading in power markets: The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France. I have build numerous models and applications to forecast prices, process market information and manage real-time PnL. As a market-maker for ICE Endex I have provided liquidity, volume and prices to contribute to stability, transparency and reliability in the Dutch power market.

I also have a strong background in project management. I have implemented trading, deal capture and pricing systems, optimized deal life cycle processes and more. With my enthusiasm and "can-do" attitude I can help in tactical execution of strategic vision. I've been fortunate enough to work on a wide range of great international projects. It's important to keep a project moving and team morale high. I know when to motivate, encourage and when to push. Never mistake motion for action. I create highly motivated teams with a problem solving atmosphere by giving them the level of support and tools they need. I foster a culture of open communication with as much passion and insight as I possibly can.
