Collaboration Guru

Ank van Wylick

Ank is on a mission to make collaborative innovation a global movement, so big goals, dreams and ambitions can be achieved with impact. Ank is all about velocity, you’ ll appreciate her energy. If you have the opportunity to meet her, grab it.  Furthermore she loves to share. Being it business ideas, knowledge as well as her friendship and her hospitality. She is way too modest but you should know she coined “collaborative innovation”, putting it into practice for global frontrunning brands in food, chemistry, leisure and many more. Don’t tell her you know;).


Camal Handor

This is the short of it. Camal is a creative mind with a focus on strategy thinking AND execution. Hence stratecution, because theory without impact holds no value for him. Camal is a guy you wish to have as a best friend; reliable, fun and relaxed. The good news is; for 42C he puts his talents to use for clients, helping them solve complex societal and business issues. As his character, also his house interior is colourful, which he keeps in check by structure;). Just ask him about it, you’ll have a great conversation. If not in front of his famous bookcase you can find him outdoors: ice skating and cycling.

Customer Conscience

Steffie Op de Laak

When describing Steffie these keywords  come to mind: fast & lateral thinker, design lover, analytical, tongue in cheek, entrepreneurial, fixer. But that doesn’t describe her fully. She can seem to be inimitable but she makes it work. What? Everything! As long as it makes sense; for clients, consumers, users, environment and society. She is the Customer Conscience and our moral compass at 42C. Oh did I mention that she enjoys architecture? For her architecture is like building a succesfull business: orchestrate an ecosystem of professionals and put collaborations first.
