Jeanette Kalthof


Jeanette worked in HR management, marketing, consultancy and education before starting her own consultancy business and then joining the Synthetron team. Her broad professional background contributes to her integrated view on various organisational issues: both marketing related and in the area of HR and change management. She has experience in complex multinational organisations (Shell), top consultancy organisations (Berenschot) and the Dutch educational system. She joined Synthetron in 2006

Having a creative mind, she likes to think beyond the obvious – her approach is unconventional, pragmatic and results driven. She values the Synthetron approach highly because it offers a unique opportunity to really listen to target audiences and engage them in decision making - be they customers, employees or citizens.

She graduated in Business Law and MBA.

Besides spending time with her family (3 kids), Jeanette likes to spend her free time rowing and roller skating.
