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!
My name is Constantijn Wessel and I will be one of the External Affairs of Asset | Econometrics from February 2021 till February 2022. I was born in Hong Kong 22 years ago, raised in Arnhem, and happily moved to Tilburg four and a half years ago. As some of you may already know, I did not start studying the Bachelor Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR) but I actually did a Bachelor in Economics. However, I found out quickly that I missed the mathematics that I loved in high school. So, I decided to make the switch to EOR by doing a pre-Master. Currently, I am finishing my Master Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Science. Being this close to finishing my studies, I decided I was not yet done studying and decided to do a board year. As External Affairs, I am responsible for multiple things, among others the acquisition of Asset | Econometrics and managing company relations. Before doing this board year, I was a member of the Econometrics Business Dinner committee, the Quantitative Investment Group, and of course, the Nekst committee. Besides, being active at Asset | Econometrics, I have always been an eager sports player. Currently, I enjoy jogging and leading my field hockey team as captain at Studenten Hockeyvereniging Tilburg (SHOT) during the week and weekend days. In my free time, I take pleasure in learning about historical battles. I would even go as far as calling myself somewhat of a history buff.
My name is Bram Marsman and I will be the new Internal Affairs of Asset | Econometrics. I was born and raised in Tilburg and I am proud to call myself a ‘Tilburger’ for 22 years now. I started studying Econometrics and Operations Research in 2017, and at the moment of writing, I am finishing my Bachelor’s degree. I have been active at Asset | Econometrics ever since joining the ski trip committee in my first year. Now, I am very grateful for the opportunity to follow in Tjum’s footsteps as the new Internal Affairs of Asset | Econometrics. As the Internal Affairs, I will be responsible for the Active Members Policy and all education-related matters. I will also take part in the Public Relations meeting and I will be the coordinator of many informal committees. My hobbies are watching Netflix, playing Soccer, Tennis, and Squash, hanging out with friends, and attending all of our great events! At most of these events, I like to drink a beer or two. I am especially quite fond of the ‘cantus’. Next to this, I also like to go to festivals. In 2019, I attended Sziget, Paaspop and Awakenings. Finally, I love to go on holidays, both in the summer as in the winter. I look very look very much forward to meeting you all at our online and hopefully soon at our offline events!
