Jacques Bootsman

Jacques Bootsman (1967) is a partner at the Finance Function Research & Development Center, an organization that guides and supports finance functions to achieve and maintain excellence. Jacques has almost 30 years’ experience in several finance functions in different industries. He started his career as a finance professional in a medical supplies and pharmaceutical company in an international environment where implementation of an international shared service center was on the agenda. Later, he was responsible for business control in a food factory and finance lead within a wholesale clothing company where improvement of working capital was necessary at that time. In the past 20 years, Jacques has been active as a consultant within the finance function in several roles such as (business) controller, programlead, and advisor in the triangle of commerce, finance, and board of directors, helping organizations to increase the efficiency of their finance processes and to improve insights in the performance of the business. Because of his extensive experience with change management in finance, Jacques knows what is required to implement a new way of working within the finance function, taking into account the human factor in the change process. His drive is helping finance professionals to increase their impact within the organization. Jacques is also a member of the supervisory board of two scale-up companies in the healthcare sector.
