Werner Paul Boerma, CEO ParkBee: “Angelique’s track record, international experience, and management skills are impressive, so we are thrilled having her on board. We are convinced she will effectively lead our team in London and realise our intended expansion in the UK together with the great team that has already proven ParkBee is in an excellent position to create substantial value for real estate owners and consumers. We have a tremendous opportunity to grow further, in particular in the UK, being a significantly larger market than The Netherlands. Attracting someone of Angelique’s calibre into our business is a great endorsement of our strategy and ambition.”
