Elke is a writer with over 17 years of experience in communications across the finance, e-commerce, and tech industries. At Mach49, she contributes to all forms of content, PR and communications strategy, telling interesting stories about client success, and ensuring the Mach49 team has a strong presence at events.
A Dutch national, Elke grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia. It’s there that she started writing about everyone and everything — and she’s never stopped. Prior to joining Mach49, Elke led a team of writers and designers for a B2B ecommerce scale-up, wrote for the C-Suite at Aegon, and built regional PR and communications alignment for Cisco in Singapore.
Her favorite activity is to take a massive pile of data, information, opinions, and ideas, and streamline it all into a concise, thought-provoking, attention-grabbing program of speeches, slide decks, press releases, bylines, social posts, and so much more. Elke ensures the client is always the hero.
In her spare time, Elke is always reading and writing. She currently lives in The Hague with her husband and 2 daughters.
