Michèle Polspoel

Managing Partner

As partner in business I translate strategy to the 'management and leadership-side of enterprises'​.

Have gained a broad experience in management consulting on Executive Search (Board, Staff, Finance & IT) and assessment of Board/ Managementteams in Medical Devices/Biotech, Pharma, Life Sciences, Finance, Logistics & Maritime. Motivated by new challenges (on globalization) in these changing markets, the trends gives an opportunity for new points of view on governance, leadership and management skills. As a partner of Horton Inc. she participates in the Horton Practice Group Healthcare & Life Sciences in association with Oxford Biotech Network (OBN).

Personal values as creativity, responsibility, flexibility, sharing and co-makership are typical for the way she is working as professional. Intrinsic drivers: Entrepreneurship, 'making a change' and networking.
