Broad Experience



Willem Boorsma (1957)

I am a financial administrative professional with almost 25 years of international experience at HBO level in various functions, industries and work cultures.I acquired this experience in both profit and non-profit organizations.

Collecting, managing and analyzing data and the reporting of management information (financial, progress, capacity) really appeals to me, and has been part of my tasks in all my previous positions.

I also have experience in reporting other than reporting management information, for example annual reports (for tax returns and for submission to the chamber of commerce) as well as investment portfolio or trust annual reports.

The continuous monitoring of business processes and their compliance with internal guidelines, GAAP & IFRS; the assessment and management of risks, providing solutions and improvements has also been a part of my previous positions. Being a sparring partner for management while considering the interests of all stakeholders in an organization gives me great satisfaction and remains a great challenge.

As accounting is the foundation of a good financial administration, which provides accurate and timely information to management, I have a lot of experience and affinity with the keeping of accounts, accounting processes and accounting software.

Altough I work well independently I prefer to be part of a team of professionals. I am available immediately, although my recent experience has been on project basis, I would prefer a position for a longer period of time, enabling me to thouroghly settle into a task and giving me room for personal growth.
