I started my career with the Aruba Police Force in 1997, and moved on to study law at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. Subsequently, I specialized in management consulting and compliance. This is where my passion for compliance started. I currently hold the titles CAMS, CCEP-I, CDPO and I’m a Certified Auditor for ISO 19600 & 37001.
My goal is to help organizations detect, prevent and report fraud and money laundering. In addition, I am happy to help set up effective compliance programs so that organizations can better deal with integrity risks by means of knowledge and competences.
After finishing my studies, I was mainly active in the financial sector, including as Business Analyst Anti Money Laundering at ABN AMRO Bank, with a focus on AML/CFT risk management. I also contributed as a consultant for organizational development issues at UWV.
In 2010, I founded Simon Consulting, an independent compliance consulting firm specialized in financial crime prevention. It has been a great journey since. As our team is growing, we are also reaching more clients which leads to building a stronger force against financial crime. And because compliance is my passion, I was extremely happy to receive a nomination for the National Compliance Award in 2017.
