The HvA Supervisory Board has appointed her as a member of the Executive Board with the Finance and Operations portfolio. Hanneke has been the Director of Operations in the Faculty of Social Sciences for almost four years.

Familiar territory
Both the policy area of finance and operations and higher professional education are familiar territory for Hanneke Reuling. Reuling joined VU Amsterdam as Director of Operations in 2013. In that role, she has spent four years in charge of the structure and organization of operations within the faculty. Before joining VU Amsterdam, she was Director of the Education and Research department at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Eindhoven. She held various positions before that, including at Utrecht University. She studied Theology at the Catholic University of Utrecht, where she also completed her doctorate.

Following the reorganization at VU Amsterdam, Reuling and her team in the Faculty of Social Sciences successfully established an effective support organization. She is known by academic staff as someone with an outstanding ability to represent the interests of operations while also taking account of the problems faced by departments and individual academics.

‘Hanneke has made an important contribution to the direction taken and choices made both in the faculty and across the organization as a whole. Her focus is always on cooperation and making things better. We wish Hanneke every success in her new position,’ said Marjolein Jansen, Vice-President of the Executive Board.

Reuling will remain in her role in the Faculty of Social Sciences until October. In the meantime, a new Director of Operations will be recruited.
