Thomas van Driel

Ruben Wijnen

IT Officer & Secretary

My name is Thomas van Driel and I am this year’s IT Officer & Secretary! I am 20 years old and have been studying Economics and Business Economics in Rotterdam the last 3 years, after I lived my whole life in Hilversum. For this year I wanted to both develop myself in a way I would never be able to by just studying and extend my time as a student, so I applied for a position in the EFR Board.

In the past, I was part of the EFR Ski Trip Committee, where I organized the ski trip to Val Thorens for a big group of students, and the EFR Involve Consultancy Committee. For this project, I travelled to Nepal this summer.

As IT Officer & Secretary, I am responsible for all IT-systems and projects within EFR, including for example the EFR website and the CRM-system. A challenge here is to always stay up-to-date and to keep innovating, not only for this year, but for many years to come.

As Secreary, I am also responsible for the organization of the General Member Assemblies, minutes of the Board Meetings and all external and internal communication, which includes sending a monthly newsletter to the members.

In my role, I get to be involved in almost all events, projects and committees, which makes this position both a challenge and a lot of fun to me.

As IT Officer & Secretary, I strive to recognise the importance of information and be able to optimise its strategic value.
