Meet the Candidate FSG Board 2022-2023

Stefan de Groot - Candidate Chairman

Hi everyone! My name is Stefan de Groot and I will be the chairman of the 2022-2023 Board! I’m 21 years old, and I am from a small town close to Apeldoorn, in the middle of the country. I finished my Bachelor’s in International Business, and am currently rounding off my extra minor in Finance. Next to studying, I always think that gaining practical experience is essential. That’s why I chose to apply for the Controlling Tour committee last year. This is how I got to know FSG. Since I really liked the combination between formal and informal activities, I decided to apply for a board year after the committee ended! My biggest hobby is traveling to unexplored, far away countries. Due to covid it was difficult to travel to these countries, but I will definitely pick up traveling again after my board year!

For now, I cannot express how excited and grateful I am to get the chance to run this amazing association. I hope to see all of you at the events we’re hosting the coming year!

Rick van den Berg - Candidate Vice-Chairman

Hello everyone! My name is Rick van den Berg. In the coming year I will be the vice-chairman of the FSG board 2022-2023. I was born 23 years ago in Bergen, a small town in the northwestern part of the Netherlands. After completing my bachelor's in International business, I knew I wanted to follow a study of a more exact nature, therefore I started my master's in Finance the past September. However, during my master's, I realized that I wanted to gain more practical knowledge before finishing my studies. I first got acquainted with FSG when I started my master's and was looking for some summaries to help with my studies. In my spare time, I love to ride my bike or cook some amazing meals. I’m really looking forward to my board years and meeting all of you guys at one of our events!

Jasper Sol - Candidate Secretary

Hi everyone! My name is Jasper Sol and I will be the sercretary of the FSG board 2022/2023. I am 21 years old and I originally come from a small village near Barneveld and Amersfoort, called Voorthuizen. In my sparetime, I like to play and watch football. I am a huge fan of Ajax and Arsenal, so you wouldn't often see me miss a match of those clubs. In the summers, I love to sail or to catch a wave on my surfboard. 

Last year, I got to know FSG by applying for the FSG Activity Committee. This committee got me so excited about FSG, that in January I decided to apply for a boardyear. I have always wanted to do a boardyear and as I got to know the association better, I decided that this could be my chance to realise this dream. Now that I have been appointed, I can't express to you how excited I am about the upcoming year. I can't wait to run the association with my fellow board members and I hope to meet you all this year!

Stijn van Poelje - Candidate Treasurer

Hi everyone! My name is Stijn van Poelje, 22 years old and I will be the treasurer of the next FSG board. I grew up in Workum, in Friesland, and I am currently doing the master Accountancy & Controlling. In my spare time I like to do outdoor sports like rowing and cycling in the summer. 

Being active beside your study is a perfect combination of developing yourself and also having a good time. I became active at FSG by doing the Accountancy Tour Amsterdam committee and thereafter the (upcoming) Controlling Day committee. Doing a board year at FSG is the perfect combination of organizing amazing events with committees and fun informal activities. I am looking forward to the coming year and hope to meet you all at one of our (physical!) FSG events!

Dyllan Geraerds Thesingh - Candidate External Relations

Hello everyone! My name is Dyllan Geraerds Thesingh. I am twenty-three years old and I am the new External Relations of the FSG Board 2022-2023. I grew up in Overijssel, and came to Groningen in 2018. Currently I am finishing my bachelor business administration. Beside my studies I like to read, exercise and to play chess. 

I got to know the association in 2019 when I did the Risk Activity Committee (RAC) and I have always enjoyed the combination of the formal and informal activities our association has to offer. Therefore I decided to apply for the Board this year. I am really looking forward to the upcoming year, especially now that the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. I hope to meet all of you at the FSG events!

Silke Boterhoek - Candidate Internal Relations

Hi everyone! My name is Silke Boterhoek and I am the candidate Internal Relations for the FSG Board of 2022-2023. I am 21 years old and grew up in a little town nearby Leeuwarden called Beetgummermolen. Currently, I am finishing my bachelor Business Administration, the track Accountancy and Controlling. In my spare time, I like to play football at The Knickerbockers. In 2019, I joined the Activity Committee at Risk (one of the two assocciations FSG was established from) and this was the perfect way to get to know the assocciation and my fellow students. After this, I applied for the Investment and Accountancy Evening, the A&C Society and my personal favorite: The FSG Founding Event Week! After these committees, I still wanted to do something at FSG and a board year was the perfect combination between organizing great events and developing yourself. I am really looking forward to this year and meeting you all!
