About Martijn

'Hey all! I’m Martijn Brouwer and I will be this year's chairman of Tema! Two years ago I made the best decision of my life by extending my student life by starting my Pre-master Supply Chain Management after graduating from my HBO in Alkmaar. I, of course, immediately became a member of TeMa and had a blast of a time before making the choice of joining the Board. The spare time I have will be spent at the padel court (I dare you to challenge me!) or on all kinds of (board) games! I’m really looking forward to the upcoming year with the endless fun activities! Hope to see you all there!'
