Matt established ANV Holdings BV in 2011. Over the next four years, he led the acquisition and revamp of three Lloyd's of London syndicates, building an insurance and reinsurance business with annual gross managed premiums of $1 billion.

MARISKA BRUINSMA

Mariska is at the nexus of execution for EXIN. A competitive chess champion at a young age, she brings singular focus, dogma and persistence to her work. While ensuring the leaders of the business coalesce around EXIN’s vision she ensures fulfillment by turning our strategy into action. Besides the strategic prowess and team spirit any European hockey champion possesses, Mariska has been raised in a family business of long-term asset management and is thus well placed to understand the fungible results that come from consistent lifelong performance.
