Born in Melbourne, Australia, Ross has lived in the Dutch province of Limburg since his childhood. After completing his Higher Professional Business Education (heao), Ross undertook management training with one of the leading Dutch banks. He was subsequently involved for over 20 years in corporate lending, always working together with entrepreneurs.
Ross has gained experience both professionally and in management positions with several banks and was involved at the inauguration of a new bank in the Netherlands in the early nineties.
Taking advantage of his affinity with entrepreneurs and their businesses, Ross became self-employed in 2006, and has since assisted many entrepreneurs with business acquisitions, developing strategic business plans, attracting financing, and implementing restructuring.
Partly due to his banking experience, he is very much at home in arranging financing, irrespective of whether it involves acquisition or regular corporate finance. Commissioned by entrepreneurs, Ross has sold companies in several sectors including transport, ICT, services, and wholesale.
