“Bringing people in touch with one another and helping organizations to achieve (international) growth and sustainable development is my great passion. In this, I favor making links between entrepreneurship, education and government. I’ve been working very enthusiastically with organizations for years now, in achieving their aims and development, and I give them the best EY has to offer.”
How Marita is building a better working world
“As sector leader, I follow all developments closely and regularly give seminars. It’s really great to apply this to the client’s world. What can they do now in practice? I link up all parties in this respect - both within and outside EY. And I find it very satisfying to work with organizations that perform public duties. All the organizations want to bring about changes in society, whether as a municipality, a housing corporation or an educational institution.”
