Sandra is Managing Director at Hague. She manages our organisation and advises various clients.
According to Sandra, companies that proactively contribute to solutions for environmental and social issues are tomorrow’s winners. She is convinced that these companies ultimately make more profits, have more influence, are relevant to more clients and attract more talent. ‘Trust is the most important currency. Trust is strengthened through open communication about the good and the not-so-good and by having a positive impact on society’. The ability to look ahead and know which political and social issues are and will become important (forecasting) is also essential. She enjoys helping clients to communicate with more conviction and to forecast even better what is and will become relevant for various stakeholders. This is why she enjoys working at Hague Corporate Affairs.
As Managing Director, Sandra manages the organisation. The combination of young, talented colleagues with the experienced consultants and partners makes Hague a unique workplace. Every day she invests in knowledge sharing, attracting, and developing top talent and further professionalising the organization.
In her free time, Sandra enjoys travel adventures with her family and friends. She loves reading, beach and sea and furniture makeover.. Every year she has the intention to obtain her boating license and improve her sailing skills. Someday it will happen…
