I will not be the first who accidentally entered into the world of media.
Trained in healthcare, but averse of protocols, I started in 1999 at Television People, a postproduction company with its own OB-van Here I quickly got introduced to the many facets of television production.
After a merge between Television People and FilmPartners, specialized in ENG and “candid camera” the company went on as FilmPartners International. From the first Big Brother in the Netherlands, FilmPartners International was involved in the rollout of this successful format. Within this organization, I was responsible for the daily management of the Reality and postproduction department, with a wide range of mainly organizational activities such as planning, procurement, logistics, personnel management, account management and project management.
In 2007 the Reality activities were taken over by United Broadcast Facilities, where I, with a limited number of colleagues, came into service. United Broadcast Facilities is one of the largest full service media companies in the Netherlands.
Within the business unit United FilmPartners I was operational manager, again specialized in Reality TV. End of 2012, I founded RealityPartners with my business partner, Harpert Bramervaer.
