Maik comes from a German-Dutch family and started his career in Southern Germany. He came back to the Netherlands five years ago and has lived in The Hague ever since. He brings experience from commercial business and the public-private field. Until recently, he supported Dutch SMEs in their international growth ambitions to Germany, Eastern Europe and Dubai. In addition, he occasionally gives a guest lecture at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (De Haagse Hogeschool). In his spare time Maik rides a motorbike, plays squash and likes to sail.

Maik: “I am looking forward to working with MPS on the growth in the German and Scandinavian market. There is enormous potential in our neighbouring country in particular, which I am happy to work with. It is a challenging market in which I, together with our stakeholders, want to make consumers even more aware of the importance of a sustainable product. I hope that the time of virtual acquaintances will soon be over, so that we can get to know each other over a real cup of coffee.”
