Johan Verlinden

Johan studied Econometrics in Groningen, a semester of which was spent at the Australian National University. After his studies he interned at MIcompany, converting big data into actionable insights. During this time he teamed up with a serial entrepreneur in New Delhi, to act as sparring partner in finding a sustainable business model. Prior to joining SparkOptimus as a Senior Associate in November 2013, Johan worked at Arthur D. Little for 3 years, focusing on supporting private equity investors with commercial due diligence and supporting industry customers in developing strategic marketing plans. In winter you regularly find him on a pair of clap skates (klapschaatsen), while he’s more likely to be on the tennis court in the summer.
