Celebrating 25 Years: An Amazing Journey with Ronald

25 Years with Our Amazing Colleague Ronald van Aalderen

In the dynamic world of FinTech, where innovation and adaptation are keys to success, one employee's steadfast dedication for 25 years deserves huge recognition and celebration. Ronald, a true pillar of Fyndoo, has played a crucial role in shaping the company's journey over the years. Let's delve into the exceptional career of Ronald and the remarkable impact he's made on Fyndoo.

Start of the Journey

Ronald's journey with Fyndoo began while he was studying at the University of Groningen, focusing on the studies that involved programming, modelling and economics. He caught the eye of Evert Jan, the founder of Fyndoo (previously called Finan), who was an assistant professor at the time.

While studying in Groningen, Ronald's expertise in programming, modelling, and economics was evident. He took on a student job where he wrote programs to explain various financial models. It was during this time that he crossed paths with Evert Jan, setting the stage for his remarkable journey with Fyndoo.

"Ronald was very enthusiastic all the time! He is also really "nuchter" which means "sober" and "down-to-earth". And he did not change so much. He has the same character as at the beginning."

Contributions Over the Years

As Fyndoo evolved, so did Ronald. His contributions spanned from Amersfoort to various locations in the Netherlands, including Groningen and Zwolle. He even embarked on international trips to expand Fyndoo's reach in Germany (Bremen) and France (Paris) before finally landing in Deventer.

Ronald's reputation at Fyndoo was built on his remarkable problem-solving skills. He gets frustrated when things are not properly arranged, whether it's related to products, services, or the surrounding issues. But Ronald doesn't just stop at frustration; he takes action. For instance, he single-handedly built a customer system that streamlined license issuance, administration, and invoicing.

Over the years, Ronald tackled network and system administration with unwavering dedication. He became the go-to person for resolving issues, demonstrating his commitment to Fyndoo's success.

"At the beginning of Finan, Ronald was a financial modeller, of course, but secretly he was the system administrator who suspiciously liked doing that!"

A Cornerstone of Dedication

From the very start Ronald never made promises beforehand but always came through. He takes pride in the fact that Fyndoo's software is present in almost every financial institution. His work has left a profound mark on the industry.

Ronald's journey with Fyndoo is one of commitment, dedication, and unwavering problem-solving. As Fyndoo evolved and grew, so did he, leaving an indelible mark on the company. We celebrate Ronald's 25 years of remarkable achievements, and we look forward to many more years of his invaluable contributions!
