Marianne Kuiper     marianne@hotelpartner.nl

Joop Braakhekke taught Marianne the tricks of the trade and she knows like none other how to make a business successful by providing the best service. After having established a career at the Bilderberg Groep she went on to start her own business, Efficient Hotel Partner. She has poured her heart and soul into this company for the past 18 years and as the owner she is responsible for the overall success. Marianne also has a great talent for writing. As a child, she won many story-writing contests and her “Sinterklaas” poems are a guaranteed to make anyone giggle. Her blogs always get great feedback which is why she dreams of having her own column in an industry magazine someday. Another dream is to partake in the television program Survivor, but only if there is a box of delicious food.
