Ralph joined SparkOptimus as a Junior Associate in April 2017. He holds a Master’s degree in International Management (Cum Laude) from Erasmus University Rotterdam, which included an exchange at Bocconi University in Milan. Throughout his studies, Ralph gained experience in both the business and digital world through several internships and projects, i.e. at a leading Dutch e-commerce software company and a start-up in drone and beacon technology in Madrid. Ralph’s interest for consulting was triggered when he co-organized the Erasmus Consultancy Project, one of the largest student research projects in the Netherlands. The combination of strategy consulting and the focus on digital innovation, makes SparkOptimus a perfect match for him. In his spare time, Ralph enjoys playing field hockey, skiing, and traveling around the globe.
