Mijke van Ballegooijen
Executive Leadership Program - Amsterdam Class 18
After having moved around the globe for many years, I have now settled in The Netherlands, where I live with my husband and two children. Since traveling and meeting different cultures has always remained a big passion of mine, working for an airline for 13 years was the obvious thing to do. During my time at KLM I held various commercial and operational management positions, within cargo, sales and customer experience.
Reaching the age of 40, it was time for a change and I moved to the COO position within Guidion, a platform organization that delivers technical services in and around houses. I am passionate about attracting and developing talents, creating diverse teams and mobilizing people towards a common goal. I believe organizations are most successful when built around the needs of people.
