Sydney de Groot

As the current chairman of the MAA board, I am responsible for the functioning of the MAA. This also means that I am the face of the association to external stakeholders. As the chairman, I focus on the management and development of the MAA in both the short term and long term. Apart from being the face of the association to external stakeholders, I am also in contact with the internal and external stakeholders of the MAA. I keep an overview of all operations and activities of the MAA, initiate meetings and support the other MAA board members in different ways. Besides that, I am also the coordinator of the International Research project and the representative of the association in the Marketing Association of the Netherlands (MAN). My function as the chairman is very dynamic, which means that there are different challenges and insights every day.

“Being able to lead an organisation at a young age is an aMAAzing experience and provides me with a lot of knowledge and new perspectives. As the chairman, I have the possibility to develop and exploit my managerial and leadership skills together with the expansion of my network in a professional and social way. If you have any questions or want to share something, please do not hesitate to contact me!”


Sanne Zegger

The Vice-Chairman acts within two positions: the secretary and the treasurer, bringing along various responsibilities. To name a few, the Vice-Chairman is responsible for all internal affairs concerning members and alumni, sending out official correspondence, acting as a notary, and recruiting new committee members (together with the career officer).

In addition, the Vice-Chairman is responsible for the budget, financial reports and all expenses. To ensure the MAA’s budget is efficiently and effectively managed, she coordinates the treasurers and secretaries of all the committees. She also coordinates three other committees: The Careers Beyond Borders committee; the Alumni Ambassadors; and the Lustrum Committee. All in all, a function with a wide range of responsibilities and activities.

“I am looking forward to this incredible year. It is a unique experience to be responsible for managing this organisation with just the six of us. I am eager to develop my professional and financial skills, as well as meeting a lot of great companies and people. If you have any questions regarding my position, just send me a message or drop by the office!”

External Relations

Anne-Sophie Widdershoven &
Tom Rooker

Two of our board members are responsible for establishing and maintaining contact with the business partners of the MAA. They are therefore the link between the companies and the MAA members.
“In our external relations position, we are always searching for inspiring companies that could be interesting when it comes to creating career opportunities for our members. We also aim for excellent long lasting partnerships for the MAA and ensure the continuity of these partnerships. Besides this, we coordinate all the recruitment related events that are organized by the MAA during the year. We are eager to create new collaborations and since we are sharing the external relations position we are expecting to learn a lot from each other and work together as a close team.
