Henk Breukink is an all-round businessman and coach who received his initial management experience during nearly 20 years at Shell from 1977 to 1996.
His professional background is in both Finance and Human Resources, followed by several years in general management. He added to his management experience as an associate with Boer & Croon Executive Managers from 1996 to 2002. The next nearly five years he headed up an asset management company (45 billion in assets): a good role to combine his financial and HR experience.
He was a non-executive Director (lid RvC) of ING Group for 12 years and is chairman at the non-listed Brink. Furthermore, he is a member of the supervisory board for the Kunstmuseum The Hague and chairman at the Residentie Orkest (The Hague).
In the past he also chaired the Board of NSI (real estate), Heembouw (building/construction) and the InHolland University.
As a result of his business life, Breukink travelled the world and lived in Brazil, Brunei, Thailand, Australia, London and the Netherlands. In 2008 he took up his role as coach/mentor of senior executives. In over ten years now, many senior executives came to see him to have a dialogue about their personal development. In practice this means he holds some 200 sessions every year. He uses Primary Social Motives (McClelland) as a professional and well-researched basis for these dialogues.
