Meet our team: Jan Willem Nieuwenhuys – Treasurer of the Executive Board

28 February 2019

The team members of the Crowd Versus work and volunteer their time behind the scenes. We are a diverse group of people, but we share a clear mission: to hold irresponsible companies accountable for their actions on the legal playing field.

The Treasurer

Today we would like you to meet Jan Willem Nieuwenhuys. Jan Willem is our Treasurer and we are happy to have him on the Executive Board. Jan Willem spent his working life to improve the sustainability of the financial sector. He was one of the first bankers to start with impact-investing for his clients, while creating social and financial value.

Sustainability comes naturally

“Sustainability comes naturally to me,” Jan Willem says. “When my first child was born, I asked myself, is this the world I want her to grow up in? No, of course not. I learned the profession of asset manager in a traditional way and I didn’t want to proceed in that same way. Which is why, in 1990, I established Nieuwenhuys, Brink, Crommelin Duurzaam Vermogensbeheer. Sustainable investment is now so successful that there is actually no reason not to invest in this way.”
