  • After graduating from law school Miriam Dragstra launched her career at ABN AMRO, and spent over 25 years in a variety of management posts in the company.

    Her final post at ABN AMRO saw her set up the Public Banking Netherlands division. It was the experience she gained there that led her to take the step to an organisation that straddles the public and private sectors, and in January 2011 she joined the board at the Brabant Development Agency (Brabantse Ontwikkelings Maatschappij -BOM).

    As the Director of Capital, she is responsible for various investment funds that invests some €225m of capital under management in young and innovative companies, rapidly-growing ones and family businesses that are undergoing a transition.
