After his HEAO business economics study, this down-to-earth Northerner joined ABN AMRO in 1998, where he worked in various pension positions until 2004, attending several actuarial and other pension courses. As a Managing Consultant with ABN AMRO Corporate Clients, he was responsible for executing major and complex pension consultancy processes.
In 2004, Folkert joined Delta Lloyd, fulfilling various management positions in the field of marketing, product management and strategy. In his most recent position with Delta Lloyd Levensverzekeringen, he was in charge of the Growth Pension Strategy programme, focusing on Delta Lloyd’s pension strategy, Mergers & Acquisitions within the pension division, restructuring the general insurance division, chain integration and improving customer processes. Eventually, also thanks to his practical perspective, this culminated in developing and shaping the partnership with Binck (BeFrank).
Folkert is a true gourmet. He lost his heart to Italy, in particular to Tuscany. Of course, this includes a good glass of wine and Italian food. He loves cooking and then burning it right off with sports. If he has any time left, he likes reading good books.
