Hi! My name is Thom van Dalen and I am the Chairman of the XLIIIrd STAR Board. I am 20 years old and grew up in Harderwijk. Three years ago, I moved to Rotterdam to start my bachelor’s in business administration and joined STAR’s Activity Team Active Members committee. This resulted in a year full of fun and meeting a lot of great people. I really enjoyed the environment at STAR which led to my application for the BA Study Trip Committee in my second year, which led to an unforgettable trip to Shanghai. While finishing up my bachelor, I knew I was ready for a new challenge, so I applied for the XLIIIrd STAR board.
As Chairman of the XLIIIrd STAR Board, I am responsible for the long-term strategy of STAR. I support my fellow board members in their activities and make sure that we maintain a great relationship with the RSM. I am also supervising the STAR Erasmus Consulting Board and it is my mission to include sustainability and societal impact throughout all of STAR’s activities. I am very excited for the upcoming year and I cannot wait to meet all of you!
