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 swing by our rooms some time! You can find us on the first floor of building E.
I am Quirien Raat and I am the Chairman of Asset | Econometrics this year. I am 24 years old and I was born in the North of North-Holland, where I lived until I left home to go to university. I have been active at our wonderful association for a few years before I became the new Chairman. As Chairman my responsibility is to make sure that everything is running as planned. This means that I should be aware of how the (board) members are doing, both personally and professionally. By having overview I can be aware of how we are doing as an association, but also of what still needs to be done. As Chairman, I also take a role in the General Board of Asset where I bring forward import matters for our association. Furthermore every Chairman fulfills a portfolio within the General Board, for me this is the portfolio “Acquisition Coordinator”, which means that I coordinate all the External Affairs of Asset, to ensure that we can collaborate on acquisition.
My name is Wenxin Lin and I am the Secretary of this year's board. 20 years ago I was born in the beautiful city Venlo and three years ago I started studying econometrics at Tilburg University. I have been active in several committees of Asset | Econometrics and this year I decided to challenge myself a little more by becoming a board member! In my function as Secretary, I am responsible for all communication towards members, the (online) appearance of the association and the administration system for members. Most of my days are really diverse and consist of coordinating committees, answering mails, contacting companies and maintaining the website. When I am not working at the rooms, I like to play board games, cook, hang out with friends and go to the events of Asset | Econometrics of course!
My name is Jelle Sieben and I am the Treasurer of Asset | Econometrics this year! I will be the one who is in charge of all the money and the bookkeeping. I am the youngest of the five of us as I am just 19 years old. Most people don’t hear from my accent (contrary to Nina) that I am actually from Limburg! My whole life I have been playing football, but due to other “activities” in my student life, I am not playing it as often as I used to play. When my studies here in Tilburg started, I immediately moved into a student house. Although my roommates are fun to hang out with, I sometimes go back to my hometown, Roermond, to visit my family. To tell you the truth, I mainly visit them so I can see my doggo again! You can ask me anytime, and I will be happy to send you some really cute photos. That will be the short introduction about me and I hope to see you soon at one of our events or at our rooms! I’m really looking forward to the awesome year we have ahead of us!
My name is Joris Piree and I am a 21-year old econometrics student. In the past three years I have been studying econometrics in Tilburg, and I passed my bachelor last summer. This year I am part of the board of Asset | Econometrics in the function of External Affairs. As External Affairs I am responsible for the acquisition of Asset | Econometrics and coordinating and maintaining company contacts. Besides that I am responsible for several career events of Asset | Econometrics, often as a coordinator in several committees. Apart from my role within Asset | Econometrics I am also a representative in the Acquisition Meeting of Asset and the Team External of the LOES, the national collaboration of all econometrics study associations. Most of my days consist of writing a lot of mails, calling company contacts and participating in several meetings.
My name is Nina Cuypers. I am 22 years old and I was born in the most beautiful place of the Netherlands, Sittard. Already five years ago I started studying Econometrics in Tilburg and last summer I passed my bachelor. This year, there is a new challenge for me: I am part of the board of Asset | Econometrics in the function of Internal Affairs. As Internal Affairs I am responsible for the Active Members Policy, all education-related matters and part of the acquisition of Asset | Econometrics. Next to this, I am present in two different Faculty Wide Organs of Asset, namely Asset Academy and the Acquisition Meeting. Hence my work contains of a lot of different tasks and no day will be the same for me this year. One day I will be busy by mailing and calling companies, another day I will be busy with a sounding board, exams, guidelines etc. This variety of work is also what I really like about being an Internal Affairs.
