Cleo joined Bax & Company in May 2022 as an EU project manager for the EU Programmes team.
Following her passion for languages, history, and politics, Cleo pursued a Bachelor’s degree in European Languages and Cultures at the University of Groningen. There she also completed a Master’s degree in International Relations with a specialisation in European Integration.
During her studies, Cleo spent a semester as an Erasmus student at the University of Nottingham, taught English in Barcelona, and worked as an intern in Brussels where she closely monitored EU policy developments in the fields of education and research & innovation for the Dutch knowledge community. This sparked her interest in EU programmes and led her to further pursue a career in this field.
In her free time, Cleo loves to be in nature and spend time in or on the water. She can often be found at a Zumba class, singing and making music, or reading a good book.
Cleo speaks Dutch and English fluently and is currently working on taking her Spanish to a higher level.
