Kees Harteveld

Personal quote / vision

To deliver quality as an accountant for every client and for all stakeholders is my main motivation. Empathy is indispensable in this and does not have to affect my independent position as an accountant. I see it as a challenge to clearly share observations from audit or advisory work, with the right tone and at the right time. It is my ambition to further increase Mazars' reputation as a professional accountant and advisor in the financial sector.
