“A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes, and who has the courage to develop that potential.” – Brené Brown

Organisations consist of people. These people use systems and work within certain structures. In her work, Susanne seeks a balance between people, systems and structures. The goal: a successful and future-proof organisation and a good workplace for its people. 

With an education in Business Administration and a curious attitude, Susanne examines client issues and questions. She translates this question into practical and structured solutions, in which she is not afraid to get away from the beaten track. In her approach, the connection with others is the foundation. Therefore she considers different stakeholder interests and wants to involve her environment. This approach has proved successful within several organisations in various sectors – government, banking and NGO. 

In her work, Susanne seeks a balance between the hard factors of organisations (strategies, systems, structures) and the soft factors (people, leadership, culture). A people-oriented and process-oriented approach go hand in hand. As a Consultant at Hoek Consultants, she focuses on Executive Search, Interim Management and Leadership Development and is involved in internal optimalisation and innovation.  


“Because Susanne quickly sees connections, she asks thoughtful questions and reflects, making her a valuable conversation partner.”

“Susanne has a broad view in analyzing situations. She is good at creating a strategy or plan and considers challenges and possible pitfalls while not losing sight of the details.”
