Meet the Team

Pim Thijssen

LC Amsterdam (2019/2020)

Hi everyone! My name is Pim and in the 2019/2020 term I was the VP Finance and incoming Global Entrepreneur of LC Amsterdam. Not only am I an alumni, the iGE product is an alumni too as after my term it was decided not to continue the program. That’s unique, right? I had an amazing time in AIESEC where I had the opportunity to experience new challenges and meet fascinating people. Currently I work for the Dutch government as financial advisor. However, as many AIESEC’ers experience, I could not let go of AIESEC completely and when I was asked to join the Alumni team I immediately said yes. Hopefully we all see each other soon at one of our many events! Oh and fun fact: the picture you see of me was taken during the very first time I was at the Berckt, in the parking lot of the venue as I was about to enter the Castle for the first time. Can you see my nerves?

Dauphine Sulzer

LC Amsterdam (2019/2020)

Bringing people together is what I love to do, both professionally as in my private life. As eventmanager of the AIESEC alumni team I am responsible for organizing the alumni events and I am also responsible for organizing the 75th year anniversary of AIESEC. Working within a team with enthusiastic and ambitious people has been an invaluable experience during my time at AIESEC Amsterdam and I am happy to continue to do so with the alumni board.

Adriaan Dekkers

LC Amsterdam (2018/2019)

Hi there! I am Adriaan Dekkers. I was part of LC Amsterdam during 2018/2019. I joined as the NOUR marketing manager in the summer of 2018. After half a year I became content manager as well. Eventually I stayed in the LC of Amsterdam for one and a half year. Still I could not let go, together with 8 AIESEC’ers and alumni’s we organised International Talent Event Amsterdam. After this succes the energy of organising events was running through my veins, therefore I joined the Alumni team. Next to this you could know me from a member of the CC in 2019/2020 or the NST 2020/2021 in the Netherlands for online advertising. You’ve probably seen one of my ads targeting you!

Iris van der Heijden

LC Groningen (2013/2014) 

Hi there! I’m Iris, the oldest Alumni at the moment of the team. I have been part of LC Groningen in the then OGX team during my first years of studying and have loved the experience. After living in Sweden en Tokyo for the past four years, I came to Amsterdam and decided to join this team. I love reconnecting with people and creating experiences for others. The Alumni Team is a group of wonderful people passionate about creating connections and meaningful experiences. Being back after a couple years break I already really enjoy the AIESEC vibe, friendliness and just endless ideas always popping up. Looking forward to meeting new and old friends soon!! 
See you soon! 

Marco Swan

LC Groningen (2017/2018), LC Rotterdam (2018/2019)

Hi AIESEC! It’s my honor to serve the AIESEC Alumni Association in the Netherlands as Board Chair, and in that role keep giving back to my fellow alumni, the active AIESEC chapter, and society in general. Together with an enthusiastic and inspiring Board, I’m committed to level-up the alumni network in the coming years. There is so much potential in this leadership community to be realized, so enough talk for now and let’s get to work! 

Next to my AIESEC alumni activities, I work as Senior Program Manager at the UN Global Compact Network Netherlands. I’m also an active member of the Dutch political party D66. 

See you soon!
