I'm Colette, owner of HOOVR. I am Dutch but currently living in the most amazing region in New Zealand: Canterbury.


I'm a project manager with experience in marketing and sales strategies, entrepreneurship and business development. 


After many years of practical experience with joint ventures, change and project management I can find my way around organisations with ease. 

I have spent a lot of time in offices where I was responsible for campaigns and leading marketing departments.


I have worked in both executive and managerial positions and have also run businesses - my own as well as others'.

Every year I look forward to leaving my daily routine for some extreme challenges. I have worked with rally teams and organisations all over the world - including travelling to the desert for the Dakar Rally and the Morocco Desert Challenge.

I'm a VERY big fan of cooking and was taught by my mother and grandmother, who are both excellent cooks. While living in New Zealand I would love to walk as many tracks in the South Island

as I can. I read a book a week and believe that losing yourself

in a good story is the best thing there is.

I'm enjoying making the most of this wonderful international work experience.
