Merel is the linking pin between everyone’s interests and that is right where she wants to be. Succeeding in creating a cool plan in co-creation with the partners involved and then completing the plan, that is what gets her going. She succeeds in forging relationships between various parties by asking the right questions, listening, searching for common interests and by connecting those common interests. Merel is a visionary and a creative spirit. Her favourite Blauwhoed project? STROOM in Utrecht with its beautiful art deco architecture.
