Mark has a focus on corporate treasury transformation projects, specializing in in-house banking, payment factories and bank connectivity. Mark studied at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands). Mark joined Zanders in 2005.
Laura Koekkoek is new to the Zanders Management Team. Laura is responsible for specialized advisory in system and technology related projects, such as selecting, implementing or restructuring treasury and risk management systems. Moreover, Laura is responsible for our business in Asia. Laura has a broad understanding of international treasury and finance issues, especially related to treasury management, risk management and corporate finance. Laura studied at Amsterdam University in the Netherlands and holds master degrees in Mathematics, Econometrics and Information Technology. Laura joined Zanders in 1997.
In 1994, Chris Zanders and Rob Naber decide to collaborate as equal partners within the firm Zanders & Partners as treasury consultants. Judith van Paassen is also part of this Utrecht based team from the very start.
After three years, Zanders outgrows its Utrecht office and moves to Zeist. In the following years, Jaap Karelse, Bart-Jan Wittenberg and Sander van Tol bring in new expertise, increasing the work field and gradually developing higher sales.
The firm outgrows the Zeist office quickly and Zanders moves to its current Bussum office, at Brinklaan 134. Within 10 years after its foundation the company employs over 50 professionals.
In 2005, the firm decides on focusing more on international activities. Based in Brussels, Laurens Tijdhof starts developing this international market.
In 2008, Zanders opens an office in the UK, followed by a Swiss office two years later. Next to these offices, the company is active with clients in different continents.
In 2012 the company employs over 100 professionals coming from 20 different nationalities. Nearly half of the revenue is earned outside the Netherlands.
Two decades after founding the company of the same name, Chris Zanders says goodbye to the consultancy firm he saw develop year-on-year. Gerbert van Grootheest became meanwhile part of the management team.
Further international growth plans focus on the US market, which is why we open an office in New York. See all Zanders offices worldwide.
Next international growth plans focus on the Nordics market and Asian market, which is why we open offices in Stockholm and Tokyo. See all Zanders offices worldwide
