Chairman - Tom Strating
Ola! My name is Tom Strating, I am 22 years old and I grew up in beautiful Hengelo. I am currently in the 3rd year of my Bachelor Business Administration TM and I hope to finish this soon, after which I will fulfill my position as chairman at TeMa and start following some courses of the MSc Supply Chain Management or Technology & Operations Management.
I joined TeMa two years ago and started in the Social Committee as a promotion officer. Within this fantastic committee I had a great time in my first year at TeMa and got to know many new nice people, with the drinks and the Lustrum as highlights. After my first year at TeMa I was sure that I wanted to stay active at TeMa, which led to me being a proud member of the Social Committee again this year.
After I had a good conversation with several board members, while enjoying a cup of coffee, about a possible board year, I knew quite quickly that I wanted to go for it. What particularly appeals to me is the opportunity to be able to do more for TeMa and to further develop myself. Furthermore, it seems to me a fantastic experience to have a super fun and pleasant year together with three fellow board members in collaboration with the many beautiful committees, members and partners that TeMa has.
Secretary & Promotion - Niek van Harten
Hi everybody! My name is Niek van Harten, I am 20 years old and I was born and raised in a small town called Steenwijk. Next year I will be in my third year of the bachelor business administration. I have many different hobbies and enjoy many different activities such as traveling, swimming and cycling. My biggest pastime is football anyway! Not just playing it, but also watching it. I have played football for the past 15 years at a club in Steenwijk, but next year I can make a “transfer” to G.S.V.V The Knickerbockers, which I am really looking forward to! Last year was my first year as an active member at TeMa. This year was already such a fun year that I immediately wanted to give it a try to become a board member and now I can say that next year I will fulfill the position of secretary and promotion within the TeMa board! I am really looking forward to it and despite what is going on in the world now, I am sure that together with my fellow board members we will make it a great year for all our members!
Treasurer & Vice-Chairman - Douwe Jens Steensma
Hello all! My name is Douwe Jens Steensma, 21 years old and from September the new treasurer of TeMa. I spent my childhood in Friesland, but have been living in beautiful Groningen for a number of years. Besides studying, I like to exercise and you can meet me on the terrace for a beer. I recently completed my bachelor's degree in Business Administration and next year I will start with the Master Supply Chain management. During the past years I have participated in various committees and I have become involved in several TeMa events. My co-directors and I are convinced that, despite the current restrictions on Covid-19, we will once again make this year an unforgettable one. We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our events or to catch up while enjoying a cup of coffee.
External Relations - Mark Kingma
Hey, my name is Mark Kingma. I am 22 years old and come from beautiful Delfzijl, a harbor town in northern Groningen. Here I could always be found within the lines on the football or basketball court, now I usually stay outside the lines. If you are curious about the legend of Delfzijl and are not too careful with your ankles, you can always throw a ball or kick it. This year I started my master Supply Chain Management. I am looking forward to this, but the year 2020-2021 will be all about fulfilling the position of External Commissioner at TeMa. I hope to be of value to TeMa in this crazy year and to organize many corona-proof events. I hope to see you at the events and drinks!
