After working with us for almost five years, our Managing Director, Remmelt de Weerd, has decided to step down from his position. His tasks will be taken over by Saskia Hollander, who has been appointed Executive Director as of 1 September this year.

Remmelt played a decisive role in the years that saw the transformation of The Broker from an online magazine into an independent knowledge brokering organization in the field of international development. Within The Broker team, Remmelt was at the centre. He always knew the answer to everything, whether it was about research, writing, IT, finance, legal or personal issues. With several years of management experience, Remmelt now hopes to find new employment in a research or policy-related role. We will miss him tremendously, but wish him the very best and hope to still see him many times in the future.

Saskia Hollander, our Director of Knowledge Management since 2017, will take up the captaincy and continue steering the great course that The Broker is sailing.
