Welcome. I am a tenured Associate Professor of Strategy and Innovation at Radboud University, Nijmegen School of Management and affiliated with the Institute of Management Research, the Netherlands where I founded the Centre for Organization Restructuring. For over ten years now I have been researching, consulting, and teaching on organization restructuring and how network analytics can be of value added to resolve critical business issues varying from voluntary innovation to necessary reorganization.

I have been involved with these topics  both from a business perspective as a consultant and manager at Deloitte Consulting, and currently as an academic.  I wrote my dissertation thesis at the University of Groningen on the topic of the evolution of intra-organization networks.  My consulting and academic work also got me engaged in various projects on strategic change to companies across Europe. I currently serve as a member of the editorial board of Journal of Management Studies and as a visiting scholar at the Tokyo Institute of Technology where I focus on health tech M&A and tech driven innovation. Prior I was a visiting scholar at Imperial College London and the National University of Ireland around the theme of network analytics.

Over the years I have worked with a variety of organizations (a.o. Philips, BDO, Siemens, Equens, ING, Deloitte, ATOS,  Ministry of Justice, and last – but in  the context of innovation certainly not least – a diversity of SME’s) on a variety of solutions including new business development, innovation policy, scenario analysis and reorganization strategies.

This platform provides a selection of insights rendered from these projects for those interested. By all means feel free to reach out to discuss on any of the above themes in more detail.
