ABOUT THE BOARD
The board members of Asset | Econometrics are responsible for running the association together. Every board member has different responsibilities related to his or her function. Next to their daily task of running the association to the best of their ability, the board of Asset | Econometrics sets several goals to bring the association to an even higher level.
Get to know our board members by reading the pieces below or send us a message some time!
My name is Juul Schuurmans and I am the Chairman of this years’ board. I was born in the Achterhoek twenty-one years ago, but I moved to Tilburg in the summer of 2017 to start studying Econometrics and Operations Research. Before my board year, I started my active member career at the Drinks & Activities committee. After that, I organized the Econometrics in Practice Day, and my last committee was the International Business Tour 2020, which unfortunately got canceled. As Chairman, I am responsible for keeping the overview and making sure that everything goes as planned. Furthermore, as Chairman, I take place in the general board of Asset. In the general board, I represent Asset | Econometrics, and I am the Acquisition Coordinator. This means that I coordinate all the External Affairs officers of Asset, to ensure that we all collaborate with one another on acquisition. In my free time, I like to run, play tennis, read, hang out with friends, and drink beers from time to time.
My name is Michelle Luijten and I have just finished my Bachelor Econometrics and Operations Research in Tilburg. Originally, I come from the south of the Netherlands, but I have moved to Tilburg ever since I started with my studies in 2017. After studying and being active at Asset | Econometrics for three years, I felt that a board year was the next step for me to take. As Secretary of Asset | Econometrics, I am responsible for many things, such as the minutes of the board meetings, the website and the social media channels. Furthermore, I also take care of the photos during our events and the administration system of our members. My main goal this year will be to make sure that everyone feels home at this wonderful association. When I am not working for Asset, I like to go running, play some board games, travel, hang out with friends and go to all of our events!
My name is Stephan Sparreboom and this year I am the Treasurer of Asset | Econometrics. I will be responsible for all the financial matters of the association. I was born and raised in Koudekerk aan den Rijn, a small village close to Leiden. During my middle school time I have been playing table tennis at national level. Nowadays I’m mostly busy with fitness and being a board member of this lovely association. This year I will coordinate multiple formal and informal committees, keep the bookkeeping up to date and be responsible for the financial health of the association. Next to the regular Treasurer tasks I am also the IT-guy of this year. If you have any questions regarding IT-matters you can always ask me!
After being an active member of Asset | Econometrics for the last three years, I am really grateful for the opportunity to be a member of the board. Unfortunately, this year will be a lot different because of COVID-19. However I am confident that it will be an amazing year!
Juliëtte van der velden
My name is Juliëtte van der Velden and this year I am the External Affairs of Asset | Econometrics. I was originally raised in the lovely city of Geleen but happily moved to Tilburg to start studying econometrics two years ago. Since then, I have been a proud member of the Active Members Weekend Committee, Freshmen Committee, Events Committee and the EOR Business Dinner Committee. This year, it was time for a new challenge; a board year. As External Affairs, I am responsible for multiple things, among which the acquisition of Asset | Econometrics and coordinating and maintaining company contacts. I look forward to meeting all the companies that are interesting for us as econometricians and I hope to give you the chance to meet your dream company at one of our events! Besides spending a lot of time on Astrics, I also am a member of TSV Plato, my sorority Conserva and I play the violin in the Limburg Youth Symphony Orchestra. I really look forward to see you all this year, either online or at one of our events!
Tjum van dijck
My name is Tjum van Dijck and this year I am the Internal Affairs officer of Asset | Econometrics! I was born in Spain twenty-one years ago and moved at the age of two to the Netherlands. In 2017, I moved to Tilburg and started studying Econometrics & Operation Research. I have been part of the Yearbook committee, the Active Members Weekend committee and the Hackathon committee. After studying abroad in Hong Kong for the first semester of 2019-2020, I was ready for the next challenge. I am really grateful for opportunity to be in the board of the association I love, made friends for life and have had the best times. As Internal Affairs, I will be responsible for the Active Members Policy, the education-related matters and part of the acquisition of Asset | Econometrics. I will represent Asset | Econometrics in the Public Relation meeting and the Acquisition Meeting. The diversity of this function, the contact with the members, the university and companies, is what I enjoy the most. I am really looking forward to seeing you all this year at our rooms and the events!
