Hi everyone, my name is Luc Geurts, I am 21 years old and I am the Chairman of Asset | Econometrics. Next to this I am the Treasurer and Vice-Chairman of Asset. I was born and raised in Eindhoven before moving to Tilburg to study the EOR bachelor in 2019. I became active at Astrics during my second year in the Europe Trip committee and have also been in the EPD committee before I started my board year. Next to this I enjoy playing football and have been playing at T.S.V.V Merlijn, where I also have been active in some committees. In my spare time I enjoy playing different sports but also to read a book or to crack my brain on some puzzles. A fun fact about me is that I have had 8 concussions during my life. I hope to see you at many of our events and of course at the rooms!!
Hi! I am Juliëtte Tillie, the secretary of our beautiful association Asset | Econometrics for the upcoming academic year. Being 23 years old, I am the oldest and wisest of the board. I was born in Eindhoven but raised in a small village near Roermond. After high school, I moved to Tilburg and started a study at Fontys Tilburg. However, I quickly realized that I missed mathematics. For this reason, I visited the open day of Tilburg University and shortly after started the Bachelor EOR. I immediately became active in the Lustrum Trip committee, and enjoyed many other committees as well over the years. By now I have had almost every role in the Nekst committee possible, including being its coordinator this year. I am looking forward to releasing four beautiful issues of our beloved magazine, and doing many more things for our association. Hopefully you will enjoy our many events and other opportunities. See you soon at the rooms!
Hello there! I am Matthijs Kroesen, the treasurer of Asset | Econometrics in 2022-2023. I was born and raised in the most beautiful town of the Netherlands (Hilversum). Fortunately, I am not as old as my fellow boardies, since I am only 20 years old. I started with Econometrics & Operational Research in 2020, and I immediately became active at Asset | Econometrics in the Europe Trip Committee. The year after, I explored my journalistic and artistic interests with the Nekst and the Yearbook Committee. Besides that, I have also met quite some friends at Asset | Econometrics. Next year, I hope to be the healthy financial heart of the association.
Hi! My name is Ikie Leunissen and together with Meike I am the External Affairs of Asset | Econometrics for the upcoming half year. I am 21 years old and was raised in Hulsberg. In 2016 my parents and I moved to the beautiful hamlet Waterval, which is close to Maastricht. Since 2018, when I started studying Econometrics and Operations Research, I have been living in Tilburg. By now I have almost finished my Bachelor; the only course I still need to pass is (of course) Statistics for Econometrics. Furthermore I am currently following some Economic courses to be able to do the Sustainable Development master of Economics as well. In my free time, I like to do sports like jogging and fitness. On the weekends, you will be likely to find me in the city center, shopping with friends. I became active at Asset | Econometrics in my second year and the EOR Business Dinner committee was my first committee. Sadly, Covid-19 got in the way and the dinner could not take place. Luckily I was given the opportunity to join this committee again and in October we pulled off an amazing event! I am really excited for the upcoming half year and look forward to all the events we are going to pull off together! See you on our activities and at the rooms :)
Hi! My name is Meike Goedschalk and I am 23 years old. I was born and raised in the most beautiful city of the Netherlands, named Bergen op Zoom, which is close to Zeeland; that is why I like to go to the beach that much. Furthermore, I like to go out with friends, take a walk and watch several sports games. I have been active in several committees; Yearbook committee, Active Members Day committee, Europe Trip committee and last but not least I have been the Design Officer of Nekst last year.That’s why I am the Design expert of the board. I am very excited for this year, meeting new people, new companies and setting up great events. I hope to see you all at our board rooms and events!
My name is Nienke Keuning and I am the Internal Affairs of Asset | Econometrics. I was born in the beautiful city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch 21 years ago. I lived there most of my life apart from 2010-2013. During that time I lived in Poland with my family. There, I finished my elementary school at the International School of Poznan surrounded by other internationals. I loved living in Poland at a young age and experiencing another type of teaching and life. One and a half years ago I moved to Tilburg because I wanted more of the student experience. At that point I was already studying for over a year. I started my EOR bachelor in 2019 and I am now a fourth year student. Asset | Econometrics has been a part of my student life from the start, because I immediately became an active member in the Promotion committee. I also participated in the Active Members Day committee, the Nekst committee and the Connection Day committee. Besides studying I like to play tennis, hang out with friends and most of all, play a lot of board games. A fun fact about me is that I love the movie Clueless and my favorite cantus song is ‘Jan Klaassen de Trompetter’. This year I hope to meet a lot of new members at our rooms and events and mostly enjoy my time as ‘boardie’ to the fullest.
