Welcome to Defim
You have landed at the website of Defim, a company owned by Dennis van Vugt. Since its incorporation on 1 March 2002, Defim has carried out various assignments either on an interim management or on a (change) project basis.
Connecting people to pursue the delivery of exceptional results and balancing the interests of multiple stakeholders have been key recurring themes in Dennis’ professional career.
Having first developed his financial and analytical skills as senior manager within a large international audit firm, he then moved on to work in the telecommunications industry in the late nineties before launching Defim in 2002. Dennis gradually moved into more general management and operational roles, while in parallel shifting his focus to the real estate industry and investment management business.
In 2011 he became a member of the European Executive Committee of CBRE Global Investors as CFO and COO for the EMEA region, a position he has held for 5 years until his recent resignation. During this period he did not perform any assignments for Defim.
Dennis van Vugt has a strong ambition to provide a meaningful contribution to businesses, to people and to society. Do you wish to drive long-term, sustainable performance for internal and external stakeholders? There is a likely match with Dennis’ experiences in connecting people from multiple cultures, and in his use of collaborative efforts to resolve complicated challenges – or in simply getting things done with lots of positivism and humour. Please connect with Dennis if you have a new project or position that may draw on his expertise to lead people and to convert good ideas into great execution and outcomes.
