Cedric is coordinating the implementation of our horticulture pilot project in Jordan. He joined the team in April 2019 and, prior to working for Advance Consulting, worked for the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and an international asset management company. His flexible attitude and curiosity let him acquire experience on a diverse range of topics in the areas of asset management, trade policy and export promotion. Cedric's competencies lie in stakeholder management, (policy) writing and project execution.


During the last two years, Cedric has enjoyed living and working in Jordan. He was appointed as seconded trade policy advisor to the Jordan Ministry of Industry, Trade & Supply to support an EU-Jordan agreement for promoting Jordanian export to the EU. In his role at the Netherlands Embassy Cedric was the first point of contact for Dutch–Jordanian business relationships. He advised on the use of development aid funds to complement commercial activities in Jordan and organized events to increase cooperation in sectors of water and agriculture.
